Bengals Showing Interest in OSU Running Back Brandon Saine

One of Ohio States two running backs from the 2010 season, Brandon Saine has caught the eye of some NFL teams, including the Bengals, largely due to his combine 40-yard dash time, which was 4.43 seconds. According to the Dayton Daily news, Saine had an "impromptu meeting" with Jim Anderson, the Bengals running back coach.

"I got a good vibe from Coach Anderson in the short 15 minutes we spoke," he said. "I could tell that he was a really great teacher because he was a wealth of knowledge. I perceived him to be a good guy. He’s the type of coach that players want to play hard for."

In 2006, Saine was Mr. Football in Ohio after he ran for 1,895 yards and 27 touchdowns his senior year at Piqua High School. While at Ohio State, Saine ran for a total of 1,408 yards.

"I was given a couple of opportunities my freshman year and contributed to the team. The following season I pulled a hamstring during camp, and that threw a wrench in things right away. The injury affected my entire season. I was never able to get back into a rhythm and became a role player that year."

Saine split time with Dan "Boom" Herron in 2010 after coming into the season as a team captain with high hopes but saw his time on the field decline as Herron became more of the feature back. Saine will be working out at Ohio State's pro day on Friday, where he'll look to boost his draft stock.
