In round four, the Bengals selected OLB Sean Porter out of Texas A and M. Porter has some versatility in a 4-3 even though most of his snaps taken at A and M were at outside linebacker.
In round number five, Cincinnati takes OT Tanner Hawkinson from Kansas. Adding depth as linebacker was one of the Bengals priorites on Day 3 of the draft. They added that depth with Hawkinson. A converted tight end, Hawkinson played left and right tackle at Kansas but has been projected as a guard. His biggest strength is his footwork.
In round six, the Bengals drafted running back Rex Burkhead from Nebraska. With Brian Leonard leaving for Tampa Bay, the Bengals drafted a player with Leonard-like qualities in Burkhead. At Nebraska, Burkhead placed fifth in school history with 3,189 yards, A jack of all trades at running back.
Also in the sixth round, wide receiver Cobi Hamilton from Arkansas was the Bengals choice. Hamilton led the SEC in average receiving yards per game at 111.3. He had 90 receptions for 1,335 yards and five TD's. He is considered a good possession receiver and more of a slot receiver in the offense.
With their first of two picks in round seven, the Bengals took offensive tackle Reid Fragel, out of Ohio State. The Bengals final pick in the 2013 Draft is Center TJ Johnson from South Carolina.
