CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Bengals selected offensive tackle Cedric Ogbuehi with the 21st pick in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Ogbuehi was named third-team AP All-American and first-team All-SEC despite allowing seven sacks in 2014 while playing for Texas A&M. He started all 13 games for the Aggies, including 11 at left tackle and two at right tackle.

"Cedric is a huge man. He can play both sides of the line," head coach Marvin Lewis said.

Ogbuehi tore his ACL in the Aggies' Liberty Bowl victory over West Virginia.

"We knew that. We're gonna coach the heck out of him and make him a good player." Lewis said about Ogbeuhi coming off injury.

As a sophomore in 2012, he started all 13 games at guard. As a junior in 2013, he was moved to offensive tackle.
