The Cincinnati Bengals turned to defense to start this year’s NFL Draft.

The team snagged a highly-rated cornerback for the third time in the past seven drafts selected Alabama junior Dre Kirkpatrick with the 17th pick which they obtained from the Oakland Raiders in the Carson Palmer trade.

Kirkpatrick has a hard-hitting reputation, the kind of player who’ll give the Bengals defense run support.

The knock on the Alabama product is he lacks man-to-man coverage skills and shutdown capabilities.

His bump-and-run skills are solid.

Scouts like his ball-in-the-air-attacking skills and his zone defending. He became an All-American in 2011 without having an interception.

The 22-year-old Kirkpatrick, who is from Gadsden, Alabama. He is 6’3, 192-pounds.
