Boom Herron not expected to make Bengals roster

According to Paul Dehner Jr. of CBS Sports, Cincinnati Bengals 6th-round pick Dan “Boom” Herron is not expected to survive the final roster cuts.

Herron showed flashes of NFL potential at Ohio State, but missed significant time as a senior due to his suspension for his involvement in the Ohio State tattoo parlor scandal. The Bengals gave him a shot, but he apparently has failed to take advantage of the opportunity.

Dehner expectes the Bengals to keep four running backs on the roster – BenJarvus Green Ellis, Cedric Peerman, Brian Leonard and Bernard Scott – as well as fullback Chris Pressley. Herron may have a chance to catch on with the practice squad.
