Bengals Big Board 1/12

In our second weekly Bengals Big Board of the 2009 draft season, Ole Miss OT Michael Oher extends his lead as the early favorite for the No. 6 overall pick. He’s followed by Ohio State running back Chris Wells, with Virginia OT Eugene Monroe in third.

Georgia running back Knowshon Moreno and Texas Tech wide receiver Michael Crabtree make their Big Board debut in the wake of each players’ declaration that they’ll enter the 2009 draft. Ohio State CB Malcolm Jenkins also earned a single nod this time around.

As always, the Big Board was assembled by combing through Fansided’s Mock Draft Database, and uses only mocks that have been updated with the correct draft order at the end of the season.
