Devon Still is headed to Cincinnati.

The Penn State defensive tackle was selected by the Bengals in the second round (53rd overall pick) of the NFL Draft on Friday night.

Still, one of 26 prospects invited to the draft in New York, was the second-to-last out of the Green Room (LSU WR Rueben Randle was the last).

"I'm just ready to go to work for the team who invested in me," Still told the NFL Network.

Still is the eighth Penn State defensive lineman since 2000 to be selected in first two rounds of the draft.

Devon Still was one of six prospects invited to New York who didn't get drafted in the first round of the NFL Draft on Thursday.

Tonight is definitely the night, it's just a matter of where and when.

Rounds two and three of the NFL Draft kick off at 7 p.m., and Still, Penn State's All-American defensive tackle, isn't figured to be on the board for long.

Earlier at 11:05 p.m. Thursday

Penn State defensive tackle Devon Still went undrafted in the first round of the NFL Draft on Thursday.

The Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year was widely considered a late first, early second-round pick, so that is hardly a surprise. Expect Still to come off the board early Friday, when the draft resumes with the second and third rounds, starting at 7 p.m.

Three defensive tackles were taken in the first round — Dontari Poe, of Memphis, Mississippi State's Fletcher Cox and LSU's Michael Brockers.

Still was one of 26 prospects invited to attend the draft in New York.

Now, he's one of the few who must return for Day 2.
