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.
