Louisville OT Aaron Epps signing undrafted free agent deal with Bengals

New, comment

Louisville football's Aaron Epps has signed as an undrafted free agent with the Bengals, according to the Louisville Twitter account.

In 2015, NFL.com wrote an article highlighting Epps as one of the top senior prospects for the 2016 NFL Draft:

Epps, a former high school basketball player, has the look of a hoops star, and he had a limited role with the Cardinals due to injury and depth on the line in his first three seasons. His 6-7, 288-pound frame has room to fill out, however, and his play after taking over the starting right tackle job halfway through last season caught the eyes of scouts. Epps must add weight to his length and keep his foot quickness to fulfill his potential; if he bulks up after the season to show teams he can carry 300 pounds, they'll consider him worthy of a late-round pick.

Information on Epps is sparse, but here's some details on the Louisville product from the Courier-Journal.

The 6-foot-7, 288-pound Epps was a part-time starter for U of L in 2014 and '15, including starting the Cardinals' final five games of his senior year. A team captain last season, he finished with 14 starts for his career. He was not invited to the NFL Scouting Combine, so he was considered a long shot to be drafted.

Here's a video from his Pro Day.
