CINCINNATI (AP) — The Bengals reached deals with running back Jeremy Hill and defensive end Will Clarke on Tuesday, leaving cornerback Darqueze Dennard as their only unsigned draft pick.

Cincinnati took Hill in the second round out of LSU. He's expected to get a chance to replace veteran BenJarvus Green-Ellis, who isn't as much of a receiving threat, as the team's power runner.

The 6-foot-6 Clarke will join Cincinnati defensive line rotation. The Bengals need to replace end Michael Johnson, who left as a free agent.

Seven of Cincinnati's eight picks now are under contract.
