On Wednesday, the team announced they had signed linebacker Deshaun Davis to his rookie contract. He was the second of their three sixth-round selections (210th overall) in the draft.
Davis, who measures in at 5-11 and 234 pounds, spent five seasons (2014-18) at Auburn, including a redshirt year in 2014. He recorded 266 career tackles, including 29 for losses and seven sacks. Last season, Davis led the Tigers in tackles (116) en route to First-Team All-SEC honors.
Davis adds depth to linebacker, and he is probably going to be a special team player in 2019 so long as he makes the 53-man roster.
Of the Bengals’ 10 draft picks, just four remain unsigned — Jonah Williams (first round; Alabama), Drew Sample (second round; Washington), Germaine Pratt (third round; North Carolina State) and Ryan Finley (fourth round; North Carolina State).
