Backup Quarterback to be Drafted by Cincinnati Bengals?
One of the very few positions that the Cincinnati Bengals have signed free agent to fill is the quarterback.
So far, they have already signed former Cleveland Browns back up Josh Johnson and former Arizona Cardinal John Skelton to battle each other for the backup position, but it seems that they are going to continue in this search during the NFL Draft and pick up a developmental quarterback that will most likely sit somewhere down the back of the pecking order with backup to all of the backups, Zac Robinson.
The Bengals have met with Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib, projected to be taken in round three and Florida State quarterback E.J. Emmanuel, a late third-round projection. Both quarterbacks could possibly fight for the backup position as No. 2 in the depth chart ahead of Skelton and Johnson.
The latest in the quarterback situation for the Bengals is that they have met with late-round prospect Tyler Bray from Tennessee, a quarterback that will likely be a developmental for years to come but will eventually lead into a backup role.
Throughout his college career, Bray amassed some 7,444 yards passing, 69 touchdowns and 28 interceptions. NFL.com‘s Draft Expert Mike Mayock said that although he is inconsistent from an accuracy perspective, he is definitely a top-three arm talent and would have perhaps the biggest arm in this years’ draft. Bray will likely fall to the third round, should the Bengals choose to take him.
It’s still uncertain at the moment what the Bengals future plans for the backup QB spot are, but one thing is for sure: the Bengals will likely add to the already-full quarterback pool that they have in their possession at the moment with a mid round draft pick, and there will be heavy competition to warm the bench behind Andy Dalton in 2013.
