Bengals sign 7th round draft pick Tate

The Bengals signed WR Auden Tate, the third of three 2018 seventh-round draft picks.

CINCINNATI (WKRC) - The Bengals on Monday signed wide receiver Auden Tate, the third of three 2018 seventh-round draft picks.

In three seasons (2015-17) at Florida State, Tate (6-5, 228) caught 65 passes for 957 yards and 16 TDs. Despite battling injuries last season, he caught an ACC-best 10 TDs, which also counted as the most by a Florida State player since Kelvin Benjamin in 2013.

Of the Bengals’ 11 draft picks, just three remained unsigned, including center Billy Price (first round; Ohio State), defensive end Sam Hubbard (third round; Ohio State) and linebacker Malik Jefferson (third round; Texas).

On Friday they signed four picks: fifth-round draft picks cornerback Davontae Harris and defensive tackle Andrew Brown, as well as seventh-round picks quarterback Logan Woodside and guard Rod Taylor. On Saturday they signed three more: second-round safety Jessie Bates III, fourth-round running back Mark Walton and fifth-round cornerback Darius Philips.
