Over the past 13 months, the Cincinnati Bengals have maneuvered the NFL draft as well as any team in the National Football League.

While it is tough to evaluate the success or failure of a draft class after only one season, the Bengals appear to have hit a home run with their first two picks of the 2011 draft; wide receiver A.J. Green and quarterback Andy Dalton had tremendous rookie seasons.

The Bengals made another tremendous move in October when they traded quarterback Carson Palmer, who had effectively retired from the NFL, to the Oakland Raiders for their 2012 first-round pick and a 2013 conditional second-round pick. That pick ended up being the No. 17 overall selection in this draft, and they will continue to reap the trade’s rewards in next year’s draft.

Then, there are the selections that the Bengals actually made in the 2012 NFL Draft. Did they make selections that should continue this line of drafting success? Read through the following slides to find out.
