Grades/analysis for Bengals

Mel Kiper: B   I had cornerback as the top need given Leon Hall's recent healthy history and the age of Terence Newman and Adam Jones, and the Bengals added a solid, projectable player in Darqueze Dennard -- plus, the value was good at No. 24. Bengals among losers  Cornerback Darqueze Dennard was a fine match of talent and need.
