CINCINNATI (AP) - The Bengals took Wisconsin guard Kevin Zeitler
with their second choice in the first round of the draft.
They needed a lineman after Nate Livings, their starting left
guard each of the last two seasons, went to Dallas as a free agent.
Right guard Bobbie Williams broke his right ankle in December and
is an unrestricted free agent.
The Bengals had the 21st overall pick, but traded it to New
England for the 27th pick and an extra choice in the third round.
The Bengals chose cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick from Alabama with
the 21st overall pick in the opening round, addressing one of their
biggest needs. He's the third cornerback chosen as Cincinnati's top
pick in the last seven years, along with Johnathan Joseph (2006)
and Leon Hall (2007).
