According to Kellis Robinett wth the Wichita Eagle and the Kansas City Star, Kansas State safety / outside linebacker Emmanuel Lamur headed to the Cincinnati Bengals. Lamur, who generated five career interceptions for 56 return yards, ran a 4.63 at his March 14 Pro Day.

The scouting report on him from National Football Post writes:

A tall, lean linebacker who possesses the body of a defensive back. Lacks ideal girth through his lower half, doesn't generate any power into contact and can routinely be overwhelmed when asked to engage with blocks. Isn't a real natural bender, struggles to gain leverage on contact and snap through his hips. Routinely ends up on the ground. However, possesses a long set of arms and when he puts himself in position to make a play on the ball carrier is patient when asked to breakdown. Wraps well on contact and does a nice job dragging his man to the ground. Isn't a physical striker and doesn't create much snap into contact, but is a solid tackler in tight areas. Doesn't display great instincts though inside, routinely will take himself out of plays with false steps and when he does need to close quickly in pursuit, loses balance into contact and ends up easily being knocked out of the play and/or on to the ground.

Is leggy in his drop, struggles to keep his feet under him and isn't real fluid when asked to turn and run. Struggles with balance when re-directing out of his breaks, fails to keep his feet under him and doesn't generate much of a burst when asked to close. Possesses only an average feel in coverage and doesn't feel routes developing around him well. Is a strider who has only one gear, picks up speed as he goes, but doesn't play overly fast.

Impression: A tall, lanky linebacker who despite his thinner frame doesn't play overly fast and struggles with any kind of power in the run game.
