Again the gang at Pro Football Focus released their first impressions from Cincinnati's 27-13 loss to the Green Bay Packers last Thursday and again they're hating on Devon Still, who isn't having a very productive preseason, despite the three exhibition games he's particpated during his young career. They touch on the depth at cornerback and wide receiver as well.

About the cornerbacks performance against the Packers, PFF write (this isn't everything).

Leon Hall struggled the most out of the secondary, after allowing two straight catches by Greg Jennings for first downs. A quick out followed by a slant by Randall Cobb caused Hall to slip and led to another big Packers play. Later in the second quarter, he redeemed himself by stopping potential big catches by both Jennings and Donald Driver. Newman also had Jordy Nelson get the best of him twice, but had an interception for a mark in his favor. Although Clements was in for nearly the entire half, he went untested.

They continue with the battle at wide receiver, though suggest that the team isn't very strong at receiver depth because Andy Dalton went five of 16 in the first half. Next PFF addressed defensive tackle and seemed to attack Still again:

Still didn’t start the game, but was in later on the first drive to rush the passer. He started the second defensive drive, came back for part of the fourth, and started the fifth drive. Despite all this playing time, he didn’t do all that much with it.
