The Cincinnati Bengals just signed four of their eleven draft picks on Friday. They have also signed ten undrafted free agents.
The Cincinnati Bengals were able to sign two of their fifth round draft picks. Former Illinois State cornerback Davonte Harris is having very good competition with another rookie cornerback Darius Phillips in rookie mini-camp. He was the first to sign. Former Virginia defensive tackle Andrew Brown is also having a good rookie mini-camp.
The Cincinnati Bengals also signed former Toledo quarterback Logan Woodside and former Ole Miss guard Rod Taylor. Both players were drafted in the seventh round. Woodside is excited to compete for the backup quarterback position. He will be battling against Matt Barkley which is the front-runner. He will also be battling Jeff Driskel which was the Bengals third quarterback last year.
The Bengals also signed some familiar undrafted free agents. Former quarterback from South Florida Quinton Flowers moved to running back. His transition will be watched very closely. The Bengals like quarterbacks that are pocket Qbs and he isn’t one. They think his skill set is perfect for the running back position. Former Ohio State linebacker Chris Worley just signed with the Bengals also. He is used to fighting for positions. He didn’t come on to the draft scheme till his last year in college because of the talent they had in front of him.
The Bengals signed eight more undrafted free agents. UNLV wide receiver Devonte Boyd, East Carolina defensive end Gaelin Elmore, Colorado Mesa tackle Austin Fleer, UCF tight end Jordan Franks, Hawaii safety Trayvon Henderson, Connecticut linebacker Junior Joseph, Old Dominion running back Ray Lawry, and Arkansas State defensive end Ja’Von Rolland-Jones have all signed with the Cincinnati Bengals.
Rookie mini-camp has already started and a lot has been going on. Our four top draft picks are making great strides in learning a new process. The leader of the draft class Ohio State center is ready to step up.
