Bengals Coaches At Mississippi State's Pro Day Checking Out OT Derek Sherrod

The Bengals offensive tackle situation goes like this. Andrew Whitworth could be a potential Pro Bowler every season. You have Anthony Collins, who is perhaps the most balanced and stable right tackle out of the stable (don't you just love the English language sometimes?). Andre Smith is Andre Smith. Dennis Roland. Kirk Chambers. And the other two Andrew's (Andrew Mitchell, Andrew Gardner).

If you're sitting back with a bottle of Chateau Mouton Rothschild, thinking to yourself, "our tackle situation is just fine" then you're either a Steelers fan or related to Mrs. Crabtree.

So it's no surprise that the Bengals sent assistant coaches to Mississippi State's Pro Day to check out offensive tackle Derek Sherrod, according to NFL Network's Gil Brandt.

They were there to watch Sherrod (6-foot-5 7/8, 311 pounds), who ran 5.30 and 5.29 seconds in the 40-yard dash but maintained everything else from the NFL Scouting Combine. He looked solid in his workout, like a player who is probably going to be taken at the top of the second round.

According to ESPN's Draft Tracker, Sherrod is listed as the sixth best offensive tackle prospect and 41st prospect overall. Sherrod is listed with above average pass protection skills and average on run blocking (In$ider).

Possesses good length and relatively light on his feet. Gets good depth with initial set. Does a nice job of shuffling and mirroring to stay in front of rushers. Lacks an explosive punch but uses hands well in combat. Can ride speed rushers past the pocket with long arms. Lacks an elite anchor though and can be rocked back on heels by explosive power moves.
