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.
Now the Bengals adding Darius Hillary. One of the most underrated Badgers even by most UW fans. He was so steady.— Badgers Sports Talk (@BadgerSports1) April 30, 2016
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!
Hillary played DB at Wisconsin. His dad (Ira) played three seasons with the Bengals in the 80's.— Joe Danneman (@FOX19Joe) May 1, 2016
