Are any undrafted free agents going to make the roster?

The Bengals usually end up with one or more UDFAs on the team, so it would not be a surprise for any of this year’s guys to make the roster. The most notable UDFA the Bengals signed is by far Quinton Flowers, the South Florida quarterback-turned-running back. Flowers is a talented runner with legitimate power around the goal line, something the team needs. His versatility and running prowess could be an asset to the Bengals this year.

Other UDFAs to watch out for include Javon Rolland-Jones, Trayvon Henderson, and Junior Joseph. Rolland-Jones was an absolute monster at the FCS level for Arkansas St. as a pass rusher. He has a good combination of quickness and technique, and could add to the Bengals’ deep core of pass rushers.

Henderson was a complete ball hawk at Hawaii, recording 9 interceptions and 2 fumbles. The safety position for the Bengals is a little weak, so they could add a guy like Henderson to try to force more turnovers. Joseph was a tackling machine at UConn, and could bring that middle of the field security to the Bengals. Especially while Burfict is out, Joseph might be a good player to have in the linebacker rotation.
