During his grade-related review of the 2012 NFL draft, Pete Prisco with CBSSports.com doesn't just offer the Cincinnati Bengals an "A+", he writes that our little ol' team in stripes "owned the draft". Nice. In fact the "A+" he awarded the Bengals was the only one he distributed from the three-day weekend.

Prisco breaks down his reaction a little more reasonably, offering best pick, questionable pick, third-day gems and overall analysis.

Best pick: It wasn't a sexy pick, but taking Wisconsin guard Kevin Zeitler in the first round will pay off. He's a tough, aggressive player. Should be a rookie starter.

Questionable move: I thought they should have looked for a speed receiver instead of taking Muhammad Sanu in the third round.

Third-day gem: Cal receiver Marvin Jones might end up being better than Sanu. Jones isn't a burner, but he knows how to get open and run routes.

Analysis: What's not to like? The list of 10 is impressive. They acted like they owned the draft. Heck, they did.

Grade: A+
