Here, we examine the three undrafted free agents with the best chance to make the Cincinnati Bengals’ 53-man roster in 2020. 

To the casual football fan, undrafted free agents are often an afterthought. To decision-makers across the NFL, however, the process of securing players that didn’t hear their name called in the draft is just as serious as any other business they carry out. The people calling the shots for the Cincinnati Bengals are no exception.

The team has been quite successful in the college free-agent market in the past. Of course, Vontaze Burfict, one of their best (and most controversial) players of the past decade found his way to the Queen City via the undrafted route.

More recently, players such as Alex Erickson, Josh Tupou, and Trey Hopkins have all carved out great careers for themselves after going undrafted.

You can’t forget about wide receiver Damion Willis who was able to secure himself a spot on the 53-man roster after an impressive pre-season just last year.

Long story short, the Bengals have found many key pieces through undrafted free agency. This crop of players will receive the same opportunities as those before them and they have the potential to be difference makers in Cincinnati.

The front office was able to sign 10 former collegiate players that didn’t hear their name called in the original 7 rounds of the draft. Among them are some talented guys with unique skillsets. If they perform in training camp, or whenever they get the chance, these 3 prospects may just have a chance to latch on to the back end of the roster.
