Bengals were planning to draft Kevin Zeitler over David Decastro.


According to Geoff Hobson's mothership article, if the Bengals had not found a trade partner at pick #21, the Bengals would have selected Kevin Zeitler and not David DeCastro.

But it was their best move of the draft, trading down six spots to get a highly-regarded starting player for the next dozen years that they were going to take at No. 21 anyway while getting an extra third-round pick that turned out to be a premium position in defensive tackle Brandon Thompson.

This is a career-defining moment that will influence how we think about Paul Alexander long after his retirement. Alexander has taken a degree of heat from a segment of Bengals fans, myself included, the past few seasons over his limited use of Evan Mathis and Anthony Collins. While other fans consider Alexander to be one of the higher quality offensive line coaches currently employed in the NFL.
