Cincinnati Bengals - Best Number One Pick for Every Team in NFL Draft History

When not being called the “Bungals” the Cincinnati Bengals have assembled some pretty good teams. After all, they did make two Super Bowl appearances only to lose them both. Joe Burrow may very well one day be known as the best Bengals quarterback in history but for now, that honor belongs to Kenny Anderson. But Anderson was not a first-round draft pick. Carson Palmer was and he had a decent career. Ohio State’s Archie Griffin came to the Bengals with so much promise but was never able to reach that level as he was the 24th pick overall in 1976. A.J. Green was another successful first-round pick in 2011. But the best number one for Cincinnati has to be Anthony Munoz, perhaps the greatest offensive lineman in history.

Honorable Mentions: Dave Rimington (1983), Dan Wilkinson (1994), Ki-Jana Carter (1995), Takeo Spikes (1998), Levi Jones (2002), Tyler Eifert (2013)
