SB Nation Blogger Mock: The Cincinnati Bengals Pick

The SB Nation Blogger mock draft is still rolling.  This morning Josh Kirkendall of Cincy Jungle selected A.J. Green, WR, Georgia.  As I said earlier this morning, as a Titans fan you should be rooting for someone in the top 7 to take Green because it leaves one of those defensive studs on the board a little bit longer.  I think this is a great pick for the Bengals because *Green might be the best receiver prospect since Calvin Johnson.

*I still think Julio Jones will be just as good but that is another argument.

Reasoning from Josh after the jump.

The Cincinnati Bengals will have two wide receivers signed after the 2011 season (Jordan Shipley and Shay Hodge).

There is more over at MTD obviously, but that is enough for me.

Scouting report from NFP:

Impression: A long, lean wideout with impressive body control, hand-eye coordination and overall feel for the game. Plus, he showcases rare fluidity as a route runner for a guy his size and despite not having elite top-end speed he accelerates well down the field and is a consistent vertical threat. The best wideout prospect to come along since Calvin Johnson and a real blue-chip wideout prospect in my view.

Scouting report from MTD:

Green’s combination of size and strength remind many, us included, of former Miami Hurricane Andre Johnson. Johnson was the No. 3 overall pick in the 2003 NFL Draft. A.J. Green could hear his name called even earlier.

Few rookies will have the opportunity to contribute as quickly as Green, and perhaps no player in this draft is better suited to play in the NFL immediately.
