CINCINNATI (AP) - Shut out of highly regarded defensive tackles, the Bengals used their second pick in the NFL draft to further shore up their offensive line, picking Oregon offensive tackle Jake Fisher with the 53rd overall selection on Friday night.

The 6-foot-6, 306-pound Fisher played in 50 games and started 35 for the Ducks. He was a first-team All-Pac 12 pick in 2014, starting 13 games at left tackle after moving over from right tackle, where he also made 11 starts in 2013.

The Bengals chose Texas A&M; offensive tackle Cedric Ogbuehi with their first pick on Thursday.

The Bengals were expected to pick a defensive tackle with their second-round pick, but three were picked before Cincinnati’s turn, including Oklahoma defensive tackle Jordan Phillips by the Dolphins. The Bengals finished last in the league in sacks, and tackle Geno Smith struggled in his first season back from ACL surgery.
