The first round is over. The Bengals got their player in wide receiver A.J. Green. But the first round, typically the part of the draft where teams select their biggest stars (with obvious exceptions), is but a fraction of the NFL Draft. We have six more rounds and seven more picks to go for the Bengals. And tonight's second and third round are just as important, if not more, than the first. This is where teams find starters. Long term contributors, not waged apart of the draft bust debate. Teams are less pressured on Friday, feeling more comfortable about their selections than appeasing people in the first round.

The Bengals have benefited greatly with second round selections in the past, drafting players like Carlos Dunlap, Rey Maualuga, Andrew Whitworth, Madieu Williams and Eric Steinbach. Chad Johnson was also a second round draft pick in 2001.

The third round hasn't been bad either. Michael Johnson, Jordan Shipley, Pat Sims, Andre Caldwell, Frostee Rucker, Landon Johnson and Chris Henry were all third round selections.

Let's get started.
