Here they are all in one place. The 2012 Bengals draft class complete with each player’s pre-draft grade from ESPN and NFL.com.

1-17 Dre Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama — 87.2 NFL, 92 ESPN
No surprise here. He wasn’t the higest-ranked player on our board, but he’s the player Cincinnati needed to take.

1-27 Kevin Zeitler, G, Wisconsin — 85.0, 88
Will Zeitler and third-round pick Brandon Thompson be more valuable than David DeCastro? That’s the big question from this draft. No complaints after the move about getting the best run-blocking guard in this draft.

2-53 Devon Still, DT, Penn State — 84.2, 89
Still can be a disruptive force at times. Hopefully he grows in Cincinnati’s rotation and becomes a strong contributor.

3-83 Mohamed Sanu, WR, Rutgers — 80.5, 68
A feel-good story after Thursday night’s prank. Sanu draws comparisons to T.J. Houshmandzadeh. He’s a better athlete, but not as savvy … at least not yet.
