The Cincinnati Bengals found value with their No. 21 spot during the 2012 NFL draft, using it to acquire a third-round pick while dropping six spots in the first round. Instead of grabbing Stanford's David DeCastro (like Bengals nation practically demanded), the Bengals selected the offensive guard they wanted in a mauler from Wisconsin named Kevin Zeitler. And since that moment Zeitler has been tagged as the eventual right guard, replacing Bobbie Williams who has anchored the position since 2004.
On Tuesday Zeitler lined up with the first-team offense at right guard, in a projection that's expected to extend well beyond today's OTA.
