The Cincinnati Bengals are closing out the weekend by adding a number of promising young players who didn't hear their name called over the past three days. Marvin Lewis and his staff love cornerbacks, and they are adding another one in Vanderbilt's Torren McGaster as an undrafted free agent, per The Cincinnati Enquirer.

McGaster has good size for the position at 5'11" and 205 pounds and had three career interceptions with the Commodores. He had a little bit of a dip in production as a senior, as compared to what his output was in 2014 and 2015, but still seems to be the type of corner the Bengals like.

He is a willing tackler and plays well in a press coverage. Cincinnati likes to have corners they can rely on in man-to-man coverage and McGaster did quite a bit of that at Vanderbilt.

Also, a fun fact about McGaster, as noted by Jim Owczarski: he is the cousin of current Bengals' defensive lineman, Wallace Gilberry.
