The NFL Draft has been uncharacteristically kind to the Cincinnati Bengals in recent years, something the team hopes will continue in April as they look to build on an impressive 2011 season.

Cincy looks to have struck gold last year with the selection of standout rookie WR A.J. Green at No. 4 overall, followed by Rookie of the Year candidate QB Andy Dalton at No. 35. The dynamic duo helped propel the Bengals from 4-12 a year ago to 9-7 in 2011, culminating in a surprise playoff berth.

The team still has holes, however, that must be addressed if they are to take the next step from "feel-good story" to "Super Bowl contender."

Let's take a look at some of the team's most glaring needs, as well as the prospects that may be available to them when the team is on the clock.
