Bengals 2012 Draft Picks Locked at #17 & #21 After Steelers Get Tebowed

Ah, it feels good watching the Steelers fall, doesn’t it?

I could gloat about that all night, but I’ll move on to the topic at-hand, the 2012 draft picks. The Bengals would have had the 22nd pick, behind the Denver Broncos at 21st, if the Broncos had lost.

However, the Steelers fell to Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos in a magical game that felt like you were watching a good football movie. That means that the Bengals get the 21st pick, and the Browns get the 22nd, a big deal when two divisional rivals have their picks right next to eachother.

So, tonight, as Bengals fans tuck themselves in to bed, thank Tim Tebow for the magic that he performs on the field, over and over.
