The guys at Pro Football Focus are conducting their Draft Grader series, in which they grade the draft classes for every NFL team from 2008-2010. Today they featured the Bengals, and here are some notes from how they graded their drafts:

 

Geno Atkins was the biggest steal the team got, as the Pro Bowl DT managed to slip to the Bengals in the 4th round:

 

Geno Atkins, DT (120th overall pick in 2010): How good was Atkins last year? Good enough to have our second-highest grade of all defensive tackles, thanks in large part to picking up more sacks, hits, and hurries combined (49) than any other DT. The former fourth-rounder flashed his ability as a rookie, but even considering that, it was surprising just how well he adapted to an every-down role. A true find.
