Bengals take WR Green with 4th overall pick

The Bengals took Georgia receiver A.J. Green with the fourth overall pick in the NFL draft, giving themselves a replacement for Chad Ochocinco.

The last time the Bengals made a receiver their top choice was 2000, when they took Florida State's Peter Warrick — also with the fourth overall pick.

Terrell Owens was Cincinnati's top receiver last season, but had a one-year deal and won't be back. Ochocinco has a year left on his deal, but he doesn't expect the Bengals to keep him around.

The Bengals also need a quarterback because Carson Palmer says he'll retire if he's not traded. They're expected to look for one in the second round.
