Every year the Cincinnati Bengals have a local prospects day where they invite and evaluate prospects at area schools. One of those players will be University of Kentucky fullback John Conner. No. Not, that John Conner. That would just be ridiculous.
Aaron Wilson writes:
Conner, who rushed for 158 yards and two touchdowns last season, is the top-ranked fullback on most draft boards because of his size, speed and blocking skills.
The 5-foot-11, 241-pounder ran the 40-yard dash in 4.64 seconds at the NFL scouting combine, also bench pressing 225 pounds 24 times and posting a 35-inch vertical leap.
He has been projected anywhere from the middle rounds to the latter portion of the draft.
Conner has already completed visits with the Cowboys and Lions.
