With all of the talk about which position the Bengals should address in the NFL Draft, the Bengals coaches remain strong in their due-diligence to scout players that could be argued as having a place on the Bengals roster. On March 27, the Bengals Tight End Coach Jonathan Hayes ran position drills for Tight End prospect Rob Gronkowski at Arizona's Pro Day. Gil Brandt writes:
Gronkowski (6-foot-6 1/4, 258 pounds) ran the 40-yard dash in 4.65 seconds with the wind and 4.73 seconds against the wind. He had a 33 1/2-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot, 11-inch broad jump, a 4.47-second short shuttle, a 7.18-second three-cone drill and stood on his bench press number from the combine. He did all the position drills and looked good catching the ball and running routes. He only had two drops.
