Reedy said same for Trevor Robinson on making the 53 over at the bengals blog. And something about a friend of Orson Charles tweeted about him making it also.

How'd he look in the preseason? Any monster hits or freakish athletic plays?

Reminds me a lot of Odell, we just didn't use a 2nd round pick on him. I like him a lot more as a UDF.

No; nothing monstrous; he just learnt the playbook, lined up in the right place, and did the basics well enough to impress not only the coaches, but some of the vets as well.

Rey Maualuga said he was actually learning stuff from Burfuct. It always impresses the coaches when you play special teams well, and he has.

Burfict looks a pure 'natural' MLB, and if he keeps his nose clean and listens to his coaches, the Bengals might not look to extend or re-sign the oft injured Maualuga next season.
