The Bengals used a second round pick on Bates who will have every opportunity to earn playing time right away. He is a versatile player with the ability to line up at either safety spot. While he is undersized for a strong safety, Bates plays bigger than his 195 pounds. He is a physical tackler who totaled 119 solo stops with 58 assists in two years as a starter for Wake Forest, but it may have been Bates big play production that caught the Bengals attention. He recorded 6 interceptions, forced two fumbles and scored twice in 24 career starts for the Demon Deacons. His fantasy potential will depend largely on the position Bates ends up at. (May 26)
