With the fourth pick in the 2011 Dawgs By Nature Community Mock Draft, the Cincinnati Bengals select...

A.J. Green, WR, Georgia

This selection and write-up was made by macdowellm03:

T.O. is gone. Ochocinco? Who knows. Palmer? Who knows. Once Cam Newton was off the board, this pick became obvious. Green can be a starter immediately. They have some young receivers already and adding another of Greens ability would make them a very good receiver corps for a long time. There is very little need for defense on Cincinnati and some consistency on offense is really needed. If Palmer does stay, Green will make him that much better. If he leaves, Green will make it an easier transition for a rookie.

I see the Bengals are in the same predicament as the Browns. With their shakiness at the wide receiver position and the shift to the West Coast Offense under Jay Gruden, the team will be looking for a new big-time receiver. On the other hand, their defense had trouble stopping the run last year. When that wasn't an issue two years ago, they were a playoff team. I'm probably a little more bummed that Green and Bowers, the two players I'm most interested in Cleveland selecting, are off the board.

The Arizona Cardinals are on the clock next (email has been sent to Browns town).
