2011 NFL Draft Results: Cincinnati Bengals Select A.J. Green

With the fourth pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Cincinnati Bengals have selected A.J. Green, wide receiver from the University of Georgia. Green was the consensus top receiver in the draft, and ends up being the top receiver selected over Alabama's Julius Jones.

Green was the top receiver in the SEC, but he was suspended for four games for selling his jersey. Despite that, he posted 57 receptions for 848 yards and nine touchdowns in his junior season. The Bengals desperately need help at wide receiver after the death of Chris Henry and the uncertain status of Chad Ochocinco. Ochocinco, for the record, is a fan of Green and would love to see the Bengals select him. It appears his dream has come true.

The Arizona Cardinals are now on the clock. Arizona could go in a number of different directions, and are certainly in need of a quarterback. Let's see if they make the pick.
