Cheap Germaine Pratt Jersey

CINCINNATI —
Germaine Pratt described rookie minicamp last week as an opportunity to “just run around like a kid again” and play the game he loves after a draining process leading up to the NFL Draft.
The Cincinnati Bengals selected Pratt, a linebacker from N.C. State, in the third round. The last few weeks, he admittedly has reverted back to his childhood dreamworld more than a few times.»RELATED: Rookie running backs, locker mates ready to compete Upon finding out he was selected, he was shouting, “I’m a Bengal, I’m a Bengal,” and three days after the draft he already felt a part of the family when Chad Johnson sent him a message on Twitter out of the blue, saying he loved Pratt. Pratt’s enthusiasm hasn’t wavered since arriving to Paul Brown Stadium, and he hopes to bring that to the field as he and the other rookies mix in with the veterans this week and more competitively next week during Organized Team Activities (OTAs).

“This is what you work for all your life, and then when you’ve got guys you looked up to as a kid sending you messages and you put that helmet on the first time, it’s surreal,” Pratt said. “It’s a great opportunity. I just need to be myself and stay true to who I am because I can add something to this group. I just need to be myself and not try to switch anything up just because I’m in the NFL now. I’m just the same Germaine Pratt.”

START TODAY »RELATED: Area grad trying to make Bengals roster Pratt said minicamp was the first opportunity to showcase who he is, but the two days of meetings and practices served as more of a learning and development opportunity. The main thing he tried to show was that he can learn quickly and work hard.

On Monday, he and the other rookies mixed in with the veterans for the first time, but they are limited in this portion of the offseason workout program so the real competition heats up next week during OTAs.“It’s about just studying the playbook and playing with confidence,” Pratt said. “Everyone makes mistakes, but it’s about improving and getting better and helping the team out.”»RELATED: Bengals sign five draft picks Head coach Zac Taylor met with the rookies Thursday night before minicamp began Friday, and Pratt said he took from that the need to “be accountable, dependable and reliable.”Those are all traits he displayed at N.C. State, and he joins a group in need of bodies. The linebacker spot was perceived as the weak spot of the defense last year when Cincinnati allowed a league-worst 413.6 yards and 29th-ranked 28.4 points per game, and the loss of veterans Vontaze Burfict (waived) and Vinny Rey (un-signed in free agency) means the group has even less depth.Pratt could fit right in. He was a first-team all-ACC pick after racking up 104 tackles, a team-high 10.5 for loss, and six sacks in 11 games as a senior in 2018, his only year as a full-time starter. He began his career as a safety, which he believes makes him a more well-rounded linebacker.»RELATED: Draft picks could shuffle OL depth chart “He’s a big guy, looks strong, fast and explosive,” linebacker Nick Vigil said. “He seems pretty confident, which is what you need to have in this league. You can’t be timid so the more confidence you have the better. It will be exciting to see what he can do.”The 6-foot-2, 240-pound Pratt said he felt welcomed Monday when he first met with the other linebackers. He found it helpful to watch how the veterans go about their routines the first two days of combined practices and found everyone to be encouraging.Pratt doesn’t feel any sense of security among the group just because he was a third-round draft pick in a position the Bengals had a need.“I just take it as an opportunity every day to thank God I can play the game of football,” he said. “I just put it in God’s hands, that’s where the security comes.”Sixth-year linebacker Preston Brown, who is the most veteran player of the position group, said it’s still early to evaluate anyone, but Pratt seemed to be grasping concepts well and genuinely working hard. When asked about his first impression of Pratt, Brown joked the first thing he noticed was that Pratt has more hair on his beard than his head. More seriously, though, Brown added, “he’s doing a lot of good things out there on the field.”There’s still plenty more to come.“We’ll see when he has to cover and chase people down next week but we drafted him so I’m excited to see what he can do,” Brown said.

Cheap Jonah Williams Jersey

Progress reports for all 32 NFL first-round picks
Jonah Williams: It’s too early to tell how Williams will fare since the team won’t put pads on for a while, but the Bengals aren’t treating him with kid gloves. He’s already playing with the first string at left tackle, causing the Bengals to move Cordy Glenn, the left tackle they traded for just a year ago, to guard. If taking Williams in the first round didn’t show how how highly the Bengals think of him, then this move certainly does.

But with speculation about interest in Gerald McCoy flowing, it might be time to rethink the views about Zac Taylor’s Bengals. If the front office is buying, these guys make some sense at this point in the offseason.

Rob Gronkowski: ‘You can put [comeback talk] to rest’
“Whatever I say it doesn’t matter. It’ll always be crazy out there. You can put ’em to rest,” said Gronkowski in regards to scuttlebutt regarding him returning to the playing field. “I’m feeling good, [I’m in] a good place.”
Jimmy Graham: ‘Gonna go prove a lot of people wrong’
“Obviously last year was disappointing for everybody. I’m not used to losing. I don’t think anybody here is, you know?” Graham told Kelly Price of NBC 26 Green Bay Sunday at his charity cornhole tournament. “And for me, it was not a good year. I’m completely focused on putting my best foot forward and being the player that I am: Scoring in the red zone and being that big threat on third down. I mean, I gotta get back to that. And I take it serious. It’s something that eats at me every single day, not making the playoffs and sometimes not making the plays that I should have. So you better believe I’m gonna be ready.”

And he’s trusting me in that mindset. If there’s a play that he wants to call, and I don’t like it, he’s not going to call it. So, it’s developing that trust.”

Rodney Anderson said multiple times last week it’s funny how things work out shortly before signing his first professional football contract with the Cincinnati Bengals.

The rookie running back selected in the sixth round of last month’s NFL Draft went to the same high school, Katy High near Houston, as quarterback Andy Dalton. And he played at Oklahoma with running back Joe Mixon and linebacker Jordan Evans after he initially verbally committed to Texas A&M, where he would have teamed up with fellow Bengals draft pick and running back Trayveon Williams.

For Anderson, there’s plenty of familiar names and faces around him at Paul Brown Stadium. And, due to those connections, something Mixon told Anderson after he was drafted has been on point.

“He just told me that it’s a great place to be around, that he fit in real well and that I’d have no problem fitting in just the same,” Anderson said.
Anderson, at 6-foot-0, 224 pounds, continues recovery from late-September surgery to repair a torn ACL, and said he expects to be 100 percent healthy when training camp opens in late July.

If he returns to form from 2017 — he rushed for 1,161 yards and 13 touchdowns and starred on the biggest stage with 201 yards and two scores in the Rose Bowl — the Bengals will have pulled off a steal in the draft. At least one NFL draft analyst, The Athletic’s Dane Brugler, said this time last year that Anderson was a first-round talent.

But Anderson’s junior season was cut short after just two games. Adding the knee to a list of injuries that included a broken leg and surgery to repair an ankle tendon in 2015 and a neck injury that cost him the 2016 season, Anderson slid to the Bengals and the overall No. 211 selection.

“He’s a guy that we thought highly of, with the stuff that he could put on tape when he did play in college,” said Bengals coach Zac Taylor. “He’s in the rehab phase, and we knew that when we drafted him that he wouldn’t be practicing this offseason. He’s in there with (Bengals running backs coach Jemal Singleton) getting the mental part of it down. I have no worries that he will be able to do that and continue with the rehab, and so when training camp rolls around we’ll see where he is at that point.”

Anderson watched on Friday during the Bengals rookie minicamp.

His goal right now, he said, is to, “basically show I’m attentive and I can pick up the plays and the system and that I’m just a smart player that can learn the system and take mental reps and stay focused and locked in. I’m just doing a lot of rehab right now and trying to finish that up. I fully expect myself to be ready for training camp when we come back in July.”
Anderson and Williams were part of a draft that revealed Taylor’s vision for the Bengals offense and a dedication to establishing the run game. Offensive linemen Jonah Williams and Michael Jordan and Drew Sample, utilized mostly in college for his blocking, were picks that Bengals offensive coordinator Brian Callahan joked would make Mixon a happy man.

Anderson and Williams were added for depth as Giovani Bernard enters his seventh season and final year on his contract and after Mark Walton was cut earlier this year. The two rookies were nearly teammates in college, but Anderson changed course and signed with Oklahoma the year before Williams, a native of Houston, arrived in College Station.

Now, finally, they share a locker room.

“I’d heard about him growing up and stuff,” Anderson said. “He’s a great player. It’s cool to be on the same team with him now. It’s funny how things work out.”

Last season, 175 players from Texas were on NFL rosters in September, third-most of any state behind California and Georgia. Entering this season, only two, Dalton and Anderson, played for prolific program Katy High, which is tied for the most state championships at eight.

More than a dozen years ago, a young Anderson attended a summer football camp Dalton helped coach. It was so long ago that Anderson said he couldn’t remember if he caught a pass from Dalton or asked for an autograph.

Dalton, though, said he remembered hearing about Anderson.

“He may be the best player to come out of Katy,” Dalton said. “He’s a stud. He’s an absolute stud. And for us to only have two guys in the NFL from Katy High School, to both be here, that’s pretty cool. I don’t really know him. But I knew of him.”
