We've spent a lot of time lately lauding the Bengals draft picks over the past few years. But they're not perfect all the time. And example of this is linebacker Dontay Moch, who's reportedly facing a four-game suspension from the league.

According to Jason LaCanfora, Moch was suspended for using banned substances, and will miss four games, pending an appeal.

The linebacker, selected 66th overall by the Bengals last year, generated a lot of interest prior to the 2011 draft with his fast 40 time at the combine (the quickest among all linebackers and linemen).

Moch suffered a foot injury (a broken metatarsal bone, to be specific) in the Bengals first preseason game and didn't see any action during his rookie season.

It appears as if Moch is going to continue to miss games, pending his appeal process working.
