CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Cincinnati Bengals entered Day 2 of the NFL Draft having already selected an offensive lineman.
That lineman was Ohio State center Billy Price. In Round 2, the team traded down with Kansas City.
With pick No. 54, Cincinnati selected safety Jessie Bates. Bates, listed at 6'1" and 200 pounds, ran a 4.5 40-yard dash at the NFL combine and had six interceptions over the past two seasons at Wake Forest.
With pick No. 77, the Bengals took Sam Hubbard, a DE from Ohio State. Hubbard is Moeller grad.
"I think they're very interested in me," said Hubbard, after spending a day this week visiting the Bengals.
Hubbard also said he won a championship at the high school level and the college level and hoped to bring one to the Cincinnati Bengals.
With pick No. 78, the Bengals took Texas OLB Malik Jefferson.
