Cincinnati, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - The Cincinnati Bengals announced Thursday that they have signed cornerback Darqueze Dennard, the team's first-round selection in this year's NFL Draft.

The 2013 Thorpe Award recipient honoring the nation's top collegiate defensive back, Dennard was an integral part of a Michigan State defense that allowed the fewest yards per game in the BCS ranks last season and helped the Spartans to a 13-1 record and a victory over Stanford in the Rose Bowl.

"He's been everything we hoped he would be to this point," Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said of Dennard. "He's a great talent. He played in a big-time pressure defense at Michigan State and he's not afraid to be out there (in coverage) by himself. And as we knew he would, he conducts himself every day as a mature pro who wants to get better every day."

With Dennard now under contract, the Bengals have signed their entire 2014 draft class.
