The Bengals and Boise State S George Iloka have agreed to terms on a contract, a source tells PFW.

The deal is for four years, and though contract information has not been released, the source said it is standard for the draft slot, in the fifth round.

Iloka rated as PFW's third-ranked safety in this year's class. Draft expert Nolan Nawrocki writes that Iloka is a "narrow-framed, exceptionally long, rangy free safety prospect with growth potential and intriguing upside given his combination of rare size and starter-caliber athletic ability."

The Bengals add the 6-foot-3 Iloka to a tall group of safeties that includes 6-3 Taylor Mays, 6-4 Robert Sands and 6-2 Jeromy Miles. Projected starter Reggie Nelson (5-11) is the only Bengals safety on the roster listed below six feet tall.
