The Cincinnati Bengals saw a need on their offensive line and decided to trade their 21st overall pick to the New England Patriots for the 27th pick and came up with a jewel of a player.

The player that they have coveted for months was Wisconsin guard-center Kevin Zeitler.

Bengals offensive line coach Paul Alexander says that Zeitler is like several other offensive lineman he has helped select over the years in the first round.

RT Willie Anderson in 1995, LT Levi Jones in 2002, and RT Andre Smith in 2009. This is the first time the Bengals have ever selected a guard in the first round.

At 6’3, 315-pounds Zeitler is the best of all the guards that Alexander has been able to select.

Alexander says he’s tougher than Matt O’Dwyer, as smart as Mike Goff and more tenacious as Nate Livings.

Zeitler can backup at center, and his brilliance helped him gain a 40 out of 50 on the Wonderlic test at the NFL combine. He had over a 3.0 grade point average at Wisconsin as a student-athlete. He finished in the top 20 of his high school class at Lutheran High School in Wisconsin.
