Bates will join the Cincinnati Bengals.

NCAA Football: Wake Forest at Boston College Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

Former Wake Forest safety Jessie Bates III was selected in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft.

The Cincinnati Bengals used their pick in the second round to select Bates, who will likely start at free safety in a division that will one day be quarterbacked by three rookies selected in this draft (Lamar Jackson, Baker Mayfield, Mason Rudolph).

Congratulations to Jessie Bates and we wish you nothing but the best (will definitely check out a game as I live in Ohio).
