Kieft: Second '05 draft pick to sign
The Bengals today signed OT Adam Kieft of Central Michigan, the team's fifth-round choice in the 2005 Draft. Kieft (6-7, 337) signed a three-year contract. He was a four-year starter at Central Michigan, and blocked for a 1000-yard rusher in each of his seasons. He closed his career with 43 consecutive starts. Kieft is the second Bengals draft choice to sign for 2005. The club previously signed seventh-round choice Jonathan Fanene, a defense end from Utah.
I like his measurables: 6'7" 337 lbs, and the fact that he was a four year starter blocking for 4 consecutive 1000 yard rushers. Could provide some nice depth to the line.
