2010 NFL Draft Grades: Bengals Get Good Grades For Improving Depth

SB Nation's Bengals community, Cincy Jungle, is content with the Bengals 2010 draft class. It wasn't a mind-blowing draft but the Bengals did what good teams do -- improve the depth.

The Bengals sought out from the beginning to build the depth by upgrading their backup players. Did the Bengals draft any starters? Maybe a few. For now, most of the team's draft picks will contribute as role players. This is how the Bengals addressed the draft this year and I believe they did it right. Were the picks sexy? Not really. Were there needs that needed to be addressed? Absolutely. In the end, every team's chances of success is based on the quality of their depth. That quality has improved ten-fold.

Cincy Jungle's Josh Kirkendall isn't a big believer in the day-after letter grades so there are no A's, B's or C's. What he does have is a great rundown of all the major stories with the Bengals draft class.

The Cincy Jungle community responded in a poll with 52% characterizing the draft class as "good" and 32% as "great."
