Of all undrafted free agents the Bengals brought in to work out during offseason activities and training camp, there are a handful of honorable mentions that actually have a shot at making an impact during training camp.
Onterio McCalebb: This Auburn running back was converted to cornerback by Cincinnati in attempt to increase his longevity in the NFL. He has a small frame, but has incendiary speed. He should compete for the role of kick return specialist against incumbent veteran Brandon Tate.
Jayson DiManche: DiManche may be a name that could show up on the final 53-man roster this year. He was given the second-highest signing bonus of all undrafted free agents ($15,000). Obviously, the Bengals are enamored with what he potentially brings to the table. He is a speed freak and is the edge rusher that the Bengals were hoping to get with Dontay Moch. Pay attention to this rookie during Hard Knocks.
Jordan Campbell: A transfer from USC to New Mexico highlands, this linebacker has become an instant favorite with the Bengals fan base. He has a big uphill battle if he is to secure a spot on the final roster; however, he will have plenty of opportunities to showcase his talents over the course of training camp.
Brandon Joiner: A linebacker trend is developing here. Joiner is now able to live his dream of being an NFL linebacker after legal issues put a halt on his plans. Now he is ready to make his mark. If his athleticism remained intact during his incarceration period, he may have a shot at the final roster.
Roy Roundtree: This wide receiver from Michigan has big-play ability written all over him. He has a very deep position to contend with, but will be given plenty of opportunities to shine over the course of training camp and the preseason. He is certainly a name to keep an eye on.
