New, comments

The Cincinnati Bengals doubled their list of rookies, reportedly signing 12 undrafted free agents, some notable.

Gil Brandt with NFL.com listed the best ten undrafted free agents, broken down per position. Following the intense couple of hours following the NFL draft where college free agents field phone calls from interested teams, the Bengals may have snagged several good ones.

According to reports, we have the Bengals reaching an agreement with 12 undrafted free agents. Keep in mind that the Bengals won't release the official list until later and usually there's one or two players on these lists that change their minds or were erroneously reported in the first place. It's not an exact science.

Cincinnati reportedly reached an agreement with three players that are listed at their respective position in Brandt's top-ten ranking. Auburn running back Onterio McCalebb, who ran a 4.34 40-yard sprint during the NFL combine, ranked No. 8. Indiana defensive tackle Larry Black Jr. ranked No. 6 and Minnesota cornerback Troy Stoudermire ranked No. 5.

Virginia Tech linebacker Bruce Taylor is another notable reported signing, who finished last season with 5.5 quarterback sacks and 10.5 tackles for loss. Taylor was also named an honorable mention to the Coaches All-ACC team.
