College Free Agent Signees

- from the official site of the Cincinnati Bengals

Headed by LSU center Ben Wilkerson and a trio of safeties, the list of Bengals college free agents also includes another University of Georgia product. The 11 CFAs join the seven draft picks at this weekend’s rookie camp at Paul Brown Stadium.

Fullback Jeremy Thomas joins Georgia teammates David Pollack and Odell Thurman after they were taken in the first two rounds of the draft. Toledo safety Patrick Body, timed in the 4.3 range in the 40-yard dash, Indiana’s Herana-Daze Jones, and Georgia Southern’s James Young are the safeties the Bengals signed after not drafting any this past weekend.

The Bengals are also trying out some unsigned players at the camp, including Ohio State running back Lydell Ross and guard Clay Martin of Georgetown College in Kentucky, home of the Bengals training camp.

The Bengals picked up one of the most coveted players in college free agency when they reached a deal with LSU center Ben Wilkerson hours after he went undrafted. Media outlets in New Orleans and Baton Rouge have reported in the two days since the completion of the draft that the man who had once been the draft’s leading center candidate on some boards had reached a deal with Cincinnati.

Lewis and Press

Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis held his pre-draft news conference Tuesday and presented such a good poker face that he barely confirmed his team would pick in the first round Saturday, but he did offer some hints for the No. 17 pick.

Second-year OT Stacy Andrews (6-7, 346) has a chance to become the top backup at both tackle spots because of his versatility. He has the size and strength to be an effective run blocker, and possesses the foot speed and balance to be a capable pass protector. Finding playing time for him will be difficult because LT Levi Jones and RT Willie Anderson form a formidable tandem, but Andrews provides insurance with his massive size and raw talent. Andrews, who has an All-America track and field background, spent his rookie season getting acclimated to the NFL. Once he gets some experience, his enormous potential should be realized.

The most recent news coming from the Bengals is the presumed return of backup defensive lineman Carl Powell. Jerrold Colton, Powell’s current manager, stated Monday that in the next few days Powell will be resigned to the team.

The one-year deal was confirmed by the team following the next day. Powell was first signed with the Bengals in 2003 on free agent status. He had an impressive season but sat out part of it rehabilitating a knee injury.
