    Dark Horse WR candidate?

    Tate will Try to Reach Roster Dan Hoard BENGALS RADIO BROADCASTER John Minchillo/AP Images Rookie Auden Tate made a big impression at the Bengals’ minicamp in mid-June. Emphasis on BIG. The 6’5”, 228 pound wide receiver out of Florida State made several jaw-dropping touchdown catches that had his fellow receivers raving. “Unbelievable,” said A.J. Green. “We call him a young Brandon Marshall. The guy has unbelievable hands, he’s big (with) great body control. He had a very good (minicamp).” “His catch radius is ridiculous,” said John Ross. “It looks like the ball is always out of reach with him but it’s never out of reach. He’s going to be something serious.” The Bengals drafted Tate in the seventh round with the 253rd overall pick. He’s not a speedster as the 21-year-old ran a 4.68 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine, but he doesn’t have to be with his height and 33 ¾” arms. “He can separate,” said wide receivers coach Bob Bicknell. “He’s not the fastest guy in the world and I’m not going to say that he is, but he moves well and he’s got really good quickness at the top of the break. “He’s got a lot of things that you can’t teach. He’s got unbelievable size. He’s got really good body control. He’s got some quickness and he catches the ball the way that he caught it on film when we evaluated him. The first thing I saw with him is that he catches everything and that’s obviously important for us.” Tate led the ACC with 10 touchdown catches last season and 16 of his 65 receptions (25%) in two seasons at FSU went for scores. In Cincinnati’s most recent minicamp, Tate was frequently targeted in red zone drills. “That’s how I started at Florida State and then just kind of built my role from there,” he said. “That’s probably how it’s going to go here.” “Every time the ball is thrown to him he catches it,” said Bicknell. “He just really did a great job of catching the football – framing the ball, natural hands, and being strong and competitive.” Tate made several contested catches where the ball was thrown to a spot where only he could reach it. “It made me feel really good,” he said. “It’s just building trust and chemistry with them knowing that if everything is broken down they can just give me a chance.” “He can get to some places on the field that a lot of guys can’t reach,” said Bicknell. Tate’s strong showing at the June minicamp gave him confidence that he can play in the NFL. “You never know until you get out there,” he said. “Now I know that I can really play with them it just takes a lot of stress off of me, so I’ll just go out there and play my game.” “I’m excited about him,” said Bicknell. “I think he’s got to come back and have a great summer camp obviously, but he’s started off well.” https://www.bengals.com/news/tate-will-try-to-reach-roster
  2. Sizing Up Glenn Dan Hoard BENGALS RADIO BROADCASTER In a league filled with genetic giants, Bengals offensive lineman Cordy Glenn stands out. “He’s huge,” said quarterback Andy Dalton. “I saw him in a picture standing next to Clint (Boling) and Clint is a big guy, and he’s like twice the size of Clint. He’s a large human. There aren’t many people built like him.” Following a Bengals practice in June, I tweeted a photo of Glenn walking off the practice field next to Geno Atkins. The angle of the photo was slightly deceiving, but the 6’1”, 300 pound Atkins looked miniscule in comparison to Glenn who is listed at 6’6”, 345 pounds. View image on Twitter Twitter Ads info and privacy That photo has been re-tweeted more than 400 times and even inspired a “how big is Cordy Glenn?” meme. “It’s like trying to run around a condo when he sets up to pass protect,” said my broadcast partner Dave Lapham. “He’s taking up the entire property out there. And the good thing about it is he’s not a stiff. He has good feet, he’s very nimble, he can pull, and when he’s out in space he can redirect that big body on the smaller defensive backs. He’s a very athletic guy.” “For a guy his size to have his athletic ability is pretty special,” said Dalton. Aaron M. Sprecher / AP Images Glenn spent his first six NFL seasons in Buffalo before being traded to the Bengals in a swap involving draft picks in March. Before missing 15 games over the past two seasons due to foot and ankle injuries, the former second round pick was considered one of the best young tackles in the league. Glenn, who turns 29 in September, appeared to have no lingering injury problems during the Bengals’ OTAs and minicamp. “He got cleared with his ankle and foot issues so we’re easing him back in as he gets more in playing shape,” said offensive line coach Frank Pollack. “He’s a good player when he’s healthy and he’s proven that in the league. We’re excited to have him.” And Glenn is excited to join a new team. “This is my first time so I am still feeling everything out, but I don’t think it’s a bad thing to have a fresh start,” he said. “You have to learn stuff all over and start a new routine, but it’s definitely something that I am looking forward to. “Just being somewhere where you are wanted is the real key. It makes the adjustment a little smoother for you.” Cordy Glenn #77 OT Height: 6-6 Weight: 345 lbs College: Georgia Glenn has three years remaining on a 5-year, $60 million contract, although team options would allow the Bengals to move on without a salary cap hit after each of the next two seasons if Glenn’s injury woes return. But the Bengals are hopeful that they have solidified a critical position for the next several years. “If healthy and he doesn’t have a crack in that foundation and that foot is totally 100 percent, the left tackle position is going to be in good shape,” said Lapham. “He’s going to man that very effectively.” “Cordy fits exactly what we want in that position,” said Dalton. He’s a massive man looking to help solve the Bengals’ biggest weakness last year – subpar play on the offensive line. “You always want to go into the season with something to prove and a chip on your shoulder,” Cordy told me. “So I definitely have stuff to prove and I am looking forward to playing this season.” https://www.bengals.com/news/sizing-up-glenn
