Tyler Eifert "Lined Up In At Least Four Spots". Andy Dalton Impressed

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton hung out with his newest teammate Josh Johnson during Friday's session at Paul Brown Stadium, watching Cincinnati's newest crop of players practice underneath the imminent threat of another stormy Cincinnati day. First-round rookie Tyler Eifert, who lined up "in at least four spots" Friday, even making an impressive "one-handed grab on a go-route" (not to mention the pass was off-target), impressed Dalton.

"You can tell Tyler has really good body control when the ball is in the air, but you could see that on film when you're watching him in college," Dalton said.

Eifert is Dalton's newest toy on an offense that's played marginal in the past two years. The impression on Eifert isn't so much as a tight end with great hands; rather the versatility and dynamics that he brings.

Dalton also liked what he saw out of Giovani Bernard.

"It's hard to tell with running backs with no pads, no nothing on. But (Bernard) has a little wiggle to him, you can see that. That would be a good complement for Benny, who's more of a power back."
