After Sunday's practice, the final session during the rookie minicamp weekend, the Cincinnati Bengals signed three tryout players to the roster, writes Geoff Hobson.
Ball State tight end Darius Hill, Central State defensive tackle Pernell Phillips, and Florida long snapper James Smith.
The one you don't note is quarterback Todd Boeckman, who was of several tryout players that the Bengals invited for the weekend.
Hill is a three-year starter, named first-team All-Mac in 2007 and 2008 and considered very one dimensional; a wide receiver in a tight end's body.
The knocks against Hill is that he's not very physical, isn't much of a blocker, doesn't get much separation and has very average speed.
Pernell Phillips is a 330-plus pound defensive tackle from Central State.
