The fifth-round draft pick hadn't done anything with the Cincinnati Bengals until this week, when he returned from a sore passing shoulder that sidelined him since the start of training camp.
The Bengals took him with the 164th overall pick, looking to develop him into a reliable backup to Andy Dalton.

The Bengals moved their practices on Wednesday and Thursday to Cincinnati's covered field — the Bengals are the most northern NFL team without one of their own.
Dalton has been one of the NFL's most durable quarterbacks, missing only half of a game due to injury during his four seasons.
The Bengals envisioned McCarron growing into the backup role, but the injury has prevented him from making much progress.
If Dalton continues to struggle in big games — he's 0-3 in the playoffs and 2-6 in prime time games — the Bengals could make a switch at quarterback in a couple of years, which would provide an opening for McCarron.
Offensive lineman Mike Pollak sat out practice with a sore knee.
