When the Bengals drafted Kansas tackle Anthony Collins in the fourth round Sunday, offensive line coach Paul Alexander spoke about how his kind of linemen have to be big as well as well as athletic.
He certainly went for big in college free agency. According to NFLDraftBible.com, the Bengals have agreed to terms with Western Michigan's James Blair, a 6-3, 323-pound right tackle. He started 22 games the last two seasons, but he could be the kind of guy that Alexander likes to move inside to guard.
The Bengals don't officially announce the college free-agent class until all contracts are signed. But other players that have agreed according to the Internet are Ohio State fullback Ty Whaley, Alabama cornerback Simeon Castille and teammate Justin Britt, an offensive lineman.
The Cincinnati Enquirer has reported that University of Cincinnati products Bradley Glatthaar, a running back, and defensive end Anthony Hoke have also joined the team as free agents.
Idaho State wide receiver Clyde Logan has apparently agreed to a tryout at this weekend's rookie camp and not a free-agent deal as reported by CBS College Sports.
