In the sixth round of the 2012 NFL draft, the Bengals got their running back with their last pick. At No. 191, the Bengals chose to select former Ohio State Buckeye running back Dan "Boom" Herron. Herron, one of the players forced to serve suspensions in the 2011 season for selling memorabilia and receiving gifts, probably is the longest shot at making the roster of the team's 10 draft picks simply because of Cedric Peerman's special teams value.

Sixth-round picks don't usually hold out and now that there is a new collective bargaining agreement, it's almost a certainty that it won't happen. In fact, based on last year's picks and what they signed for, we can make a somewhat accurate guess at what Herron will be signed for this season.

Last year's No. 191 pick was center Jason Kelce out of the University of Cincinnati. He was selected by the Eagles and signed a four-year, $2.14 million deal with the team. This is likely a similar contract to what Herron would sign with the Bengals in the coming weeks. Stay tuned to Cincy Jungle in the next couple weeks for news on player signings and for everything involving the Bengals.
