Roy Roundtree was hoping he would hear his name called in 2013 NFL Draft, unfortunately, he didn’t. However, the former University of Michigan WR was soon-after signed by the Bengals as an un-drafted free agent.
Roundtree is a Trotwood, Ohio native, a city that is just outside of Dayton. At Michigan he never really put up any monstrous numbers, just very solids ones. His best season was in 2010, when he was a sophomore; he had 72 receptions, good for 935 yards and seven touchdowns.
While Roundtree is currently only known to Michigan and Bengals fans, he might be making a name for himself very soon.
As a Buckeye fan, I saw Roundtree play a lot, as I watch a lot of Michigan football games in-hope they’ll lose. Even though I hate Michigan, Roundtree always caught my eye, he can make some great plays. He can run deep routes very well, that’s why every year he had at-least one touchdown of 50 or more yards. He is a very underrated player, he might not ever start this season, but if he gets on the field, he can do a lot of the little things that can help the team win.
Roy Roundtree will probably never be as good as AJ Green, but you should still expect him to play quite a bit this season and have a few amazing catches throughout the season.
