Bengals sign FB/DL Nikita Whitlock

New, comment

The Bengals have found a possible full back, who is viewed as an undersized defensive lineman.

Wake Forest defensive lineman Nikita Whitlock has signed with the Cincinnati Bengals, according to his twitter account.

Whitlock worked out with the New England Patriots as a fullback earlier this year, so it would seem that the Bengals have options. "A college defensive tackle, Whitlock has an odd body type and doesn't project to any particular position, but is a natural football player and might fit best on offense as a fullback", says Dane Brugler with NFL Draft Scout.
