Bengals sign Shawn Williams, down to one unsigned pick

The Bengals are on a roll, and they’re almost finished with rookies.

According to Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer, the Bengals signed third-round pick Shawn Williams Friday, the ninth of their 10 picks to sign. That leaves only first-rounder Tyler Eifert without a deal, after three straight days of signing one for the team.

Williams might have the best chance to start of any of the Bengals rookies, as there’s a safety job open opposite Reggie Nelson.

The Georgia safety will be competing with Taylor Mays and Jeromy Miles for that spot, which makes it reasonable to think he can win it.

The Bengals have had good luck with Georgia products before, as A.J. Green and Geno Atkins have blossomed into stars.

    D looks like they’ll be better than last year. Nice work FO. You’ll easily have the 2nd best D in the AFCN.

    Bengals have quite a history of Georgia draft picks under Marvin Lewis – Don’t forget David Pollock (solid until the neck injury) and Odell Thurman (great while taking cocaine)…

    This is what winning franchises do …..kudos to the continued improvement Bengals management has made this past five years ….Now after we win this Super Bowl install Marvin as the unquestioned GM Zim as headcoach with Hue running the offense and Kevin Coyle as the new DC… I know I’m wishing on a star but hell its still the off season and anything can still happen
