Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

The Cincinnati Bengals officially announced that two of their ten draft picks from the 2013 NFL draft have signed.

The Cincinnati Bengals quickly reach agreements with their seventh-round selections this week. According to various reports, offensive tackle Reid Fragel reached an agreement on Thursday while center/interior offensive lineman T.J. Johnson reached his on Wednesday. Arriving in Cincinnati for this weekend's rookie minicamp, both players signed their deals on Friday, which the Bengals officially announced following Friday's practice.

The Bengals today signed two selections from the 2013 NFL Draft:

Offensive tackle Reid Fragel (seventh round, 6-8, 308; Ohio State). Fragel played his first college season at OT last season, after three years as a tight end, and he earned All-Big Ten honorable mention while helping Ohio State to a 12-0 season.

Center T.J. Johnson (seventh round, 6-4, 310; South Carolina). Johnson set a South Carolina record by starting 53 consecutive games, playing both center and guard. He became the only player in Gamecocks history to start four wins over archrival Clemson.

Both players respectively signed a four-year deal worth $2.2 million and a $45,896 signing bonus.
