CBSSports.com's Pete Prisco hands out a grade for every team, per their selection, in this year's NFL Draft. And so far, he's given the Bengals two B's and an A.

In the first round, Prisco marked the Bengals with an "B+" saying "I love this pick. They need a big-play receiver and Green will be a star. He plays faster than he runs. Now he has to hope Carson Palmer stays." If he loved it, why the B+ you're asking? Prisco ony handed out five teams with a grade of "A" or better in the first round.

And of the 11 "A" grades he handed out in the second round, one went to the Cincinnati Bengals after the team selected quarterback Andy Dalton.

I love this pick. If Carson Palmer doesn't play, Dalton can. If he does,Dalton sits and learns. Dalton gets it. I love this pick.

Prisco gave the Bengals a "B-" for selecting Dontay Moch writing that Moch is a "former track athlete who can really run. He is raw, but Mike Zimmer loves speed on his defense."
