Bengals adding Wisconsin cornerback Darius Hillary as an undrafted free agent

A team's job isn't done after the seven rounds of the NFL Draft are complete, as the undrafted free agency process is a chaotic period after the official three-day affair. Even though the Bengals are deep at cornerback, particularly with their drafting of William Jackson III in the first round, they are adding more depth and the latest is in Wisconsin cornerback Darius Hillary.

Like his fellow Badger who is reportedly joining the Bengals in wide receiver Alex Erickson, Hillary had a solid Pro Day, with a 4.46 40-yard dash and a 33.5" vertical leap. Most Wisconsin fans liked Hillary's performance with the team, but in three years of seeing defensive action, he logged only one interception. He's also relatively slight at 5'11" and 185 pounds, but will likely be vying for a Practice Squad spot when it's all said and done.

It also appears Hillary's dad was a Bengals player in the 1980s!
