CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Bengals have reached a deal with receiver Mohamed Sanu (suh-NOO') of Rutgers, leaving 10 of their 11 draft picks under contract before the start of their minicamp.

Sanu was the first of the Bengals' two picks in the third round. He's competing for a starting outside receiver spot across from A.J. Green.

Sanu had 115 catches last season, setting a Big East record. He also holds the conference's record for career catches with 210. The Bengals need someone to take the receiver spot vacated when Jerome Simpson left as a free agent.

Defensive tackle Brandon Thompson of Clemson, the Bengals' other third-round pick, is the only one unsigned. Cincinnati opens its minicamp Tuesday.
