Bengals reportedly have interest with Oregon Offensive Tackle Fenuki Tupou

In the article that clearly was interesting, if not relieving, that the Bengals didn't interview Andre Smith, another offensive tackle is clearly high on the team's interest. Oregon offensive tackle Fenuki Tupou.

The 6-foot-5, 314-pound Tupou is best known for his toughness in the trenches, athleticism, versatility and work-ethic. He’s strong, knocked out 24 reps of 225lbs on the bench press, and is proven to be pretty fast and quick for a man his size. Tupou was a 300-pound option-quarterback in high school showing that he possesses some serious agility.

According to Tupou, he had a great interview with Bengals offensive line coach Paul Alexander. Tupou said that he would look good in tiger stripes.

Tupou’s cousin is USC prospect defensive tackle Fili Moala, who is coincidentally a cousin of Baltimore Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata.

Mocking the Draft rates Tupou as the seventh best offensive tackle in the draft, a fourth round projection, and notes his versatility, saying he's also a potential guard, calling him the 74th best player in the draft. This seems like another Anthony Collins like pick, which would address the team's offensive tackles. If he's projected in the fourth round, and the team reportedly having immense interest in, then the Bengals could be going after him allowing them to free up a defensive selection in the first round.
