CINCINNATI (AP) - The Bengals got themselves an offensive lineman for the future in the first round of the draft. They’ll be looking for a defensive tackle on the second day.

Cincinnati took offensive tackle Cedric Ogbuehi (oh-BWAY’-hee) from Texas A&M; with the 21st pick on Thursday night even though he’s coming off reconstructive knee surgery and is months away from being able to play.

He could eventually replace left tackle Andrew Whitworth, who is entering his 10th season.

The Bengals also want to get a defensive tackle to pressure the quarterback. They finished last in the league in sacks, and tackle Geno Smith struggled in his first season back from ACL surgery.

They’d also like to add to their depth at receiver.
