With the 53rd pick in the draft, the Cincinnati Bengals select…

Margus Hunt, DT, SMU Mustangs (6-8, 277 pounds)

The Bengals continue their strong draft by getting solid value with defensive end Margus Hunt in the second round. A huge man with great natural athleticism, Hunt has the potential to become a long-time Pro Bowl player if he can develop. At the Senior Bowl, Hunt flashed the ability to be a special player, but generally struggled mightily, so he is no doubt a player that will need technique work and development before being ready to start.
