CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Bengals have selected former Ohio State center Billy Price with the No. 21 pick in the first round of this year's NFL Draft.

According to a team source, Arkansas Center Frank Ragnow was the Bengals favorite pick at that position, but Ragnow was selected by the Detroit Lions at No. 20.

Price will have a chance to compete to start in his first season with the Bengals, but due to a pectoral injury at the NFL combine, Price likely won't be ready to compete until training camp.

"He's very advanced," said Bengals offensive line coach Frank Pollack. "He's well coached and good with his hands. We want to get him on the field sooner than later."
