It's widely believed, or speculated at least, that the Cincinnati Bengals will draft a wide receiver in the NFL Draft. Whether that be Dez Bryant falling into the Bengals lap, or another receiver picked later in the draft, the team could still use the help; even with the team's big free agent acquisition of the offseason being a wide receiver.
So it shouldn't it come as any surprise that the Cincinnati Bengals were one of 13 teams checking out Georgia Tech's Demaryius Thomas during his private workout.
Georgia Tech wide receiver Demaryius Thomas displayed major progress from a broken foot he suffered prior to the NFL scouting combine during a workout conducted today for several NFL teams at an Atlanta area high school, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.
It wasn't a full workout because Thomas is at 90 to 95 percent of his normal capabilities while he continues to rehab the foot, and the 6-foot-3, 229-pound first-round draft prospect didn't run the 40-yard dash.
