The 2013 NFL Draft ended around 6 p.m. eastern time on Saturday, but the Cincinnati Bengals worked well into night to scour the undrafted free agent market, and their latest addition comes in the form of Stanford cornerback Terrence Brown:

Brown finished his final college season with 65 tackles, 8 pass deflections, and 1 interception. He was a junior last year, but opted to declare for the draft instead of returning to Stanford for his senior season.
Here is his college profile via Stanford Athletics:
2013 (SENIOR):Started all 14 games as Stanford’s most consistent cornerback…fourth on the squad with 65 tackles with a team-high 47 solo stops…had four solo tackles and one pass breakup at UCLA…made five tackles and two pass breakups at Oregon…posted a team-high seven tackles (four solo) and one pass breakup in the regular-season home final vs. Oregon State…led the team with nine tackles (seven solo) vs. Washington State…recorded one solo tackle in the win vs. Arizona before leaving the game…registered seven tackles (three solo) and two passes breakups at Washington…held No. 2 USC in check with seven tackles, one TFL, and an interception in a 21-14 home win…earned All-Pac-12 honorable mention.
Brown wasn’t the only CB to sign with the Bengals, as Minnesota’s Troy Stoudermire also agreed to a deal.
Here is a scouting report on him via Tony Pauline:
Bio: Senior totals included a team-leading 82 tackles as well as 3 pass break-ups when he moved into the starting lineup on a full-time basis. Played in just four games as a junior before being sidelined with a wrist injury. Experienced kick returner in college.Positive: Physical cornerback who is best facing the action. Has a nice feel for coverage and plays with an aggressive streak. Keeps the action front of him, tracks the pass in the air, and has a nice break to the ball. Works hard to defend passes, sells out on the blitz, and aggressively defends the run.Negative: Does not have a great deep burst and gets beat on occasions. Struggles making plays with his back to the ball.Analysis: After struggling with inconsistency and injury early in his Minnesota career, Stoudermire watched his game take off last season. He possesses the cover skills to be used as a dime back in a zone system, and his return skills are added value.
