Rivers to the Bengals at No. 9

With the No. 9 overall pick in the NFL Draft

The Cincinnati Bengals select… 

Keith Rivers, Outside Linebacker, University of Southern Cal.

Rivers is 6’2” 241 lbs. and ran a 4.54 40-yard dash. 

The Bengals are in serious need of immediate defensive help and this is a huge step in the right direction. At USC he was an impact player making plays all over the field. Rivers, coupled with the potential return of linebacker Odell Thurman, gives the Bengals new life on defense. Marvin Lewis may finally have the pieces he needs to have a complete team. Maybe they won’t need Chad Johnson.

The Pats have several options at No. 10, one of them is cornerback and not a single CB has been taken yet.
