CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The Bengals have selected Baylor defensive tackle Andrew Billings in the fourth round of the NFL Draft. 

Billings, who many projected as a late first or second round pick, fell to Bengals at No. 122 overall.

When asked if Billings would use the drop in the draft as motivation, Bengals defensive line coach Jacob Burney said, "You already know he will."

The 6-foot-1 DT entered the draft after his junior season where he won the Co-Defensive Player of the Year Award in the Big 12.   

"Andrew Billings will fit right in and get snaps," said NFL Network's Mike Mayock. "Coach Guenther will find ways to use him. As (Domata) Peko ages this kid will get more and more snaps. I think it was a great value pick in the fourth round."
