Cameron’s partnership with the Bengals returns to the spotlight during the 2021 NFL Draft.
With the 2021 NFL Draft returning to a traditional presentation style this year, we will get to see guests announce certain selections once again on stage and from remote locations.
The first guest to announce a pick on Day 2 of the draft will be Cincinnati native Means Cameron, who will announce the Bengals’ pick in the second round.
Cincinnati’s Means Cameron will announce the Bengals’ second-round pick. Cameron is the director of BlaCk OWned Outerwear, which partnered with the Bengals last year for a retail collection.

Cameron is best known for his apparel company BlaCk OWned Outerwear, which is located in downtown Cincinnati. Cameron and the Bengals collaborated on a partnership last year and released the Stripes Don’t Come Easy clothing line. The partnership was designed to promote and inspire minority-owned businesses, and a portion of the proceeds from the clothing line are donated to MORTOR, a business development service that helps historically marginalized entrepreneurs.
The partnership between Cameron and the Bengals is about more than just clothes. The Bengals hope to inspire change in the Cincinnati community by raising awareness of racial issues. Putting Cameron in the spotlight is a great continuation of the partnership they have.
