CINCINNATI (AP) The Bengals turned back to offense in the fourth round of the draft, filling their need for a backup running back.
They picked up Mark Walton from Miami with the 112th overall pick. He missed most of last season with an injured right ankle.
Although the Bengals' main focus on offense has been fixing the line, they also needed a running back. Jeremy Hill signed with New England after the season, leaving Joe Mixon as the featured back. Giovani Bernard returns for his sixth season. Walton is 5-foot-10 and reminds the Bengals of Bernard.
One big attraction: Walton played on Miami's kickoff and punt coverage teams, so he can fit on special teams immediately.
