Bengals Quarterback Coach Attends Arkansas' Pro Day To Scout Ryan Mallett

There's no doubt that the Cincinnati Bengals are absorbing as much information as they can with quarterbacks available in this year's NFL Draft. So far they have shown interest in TCU's Andy Dalton and are planning on conducting a private workout with Auburn quarterback Cam Newton.

Ryan Mallett went from a solid second round pick to what several analysts project as a possible late first round draft pick -- though draft analysts tend change their opinion more quickly than the weather in Ohio. As the weather says, don't like the analysis of a draft pick? Wait until tomorrow.

During his Pro Day last week, Mallett ran a 40-time of 5.37 and 5.39, "slower than every quarterback at the NFL scouting combine". Bengals quarterback coach Ken Zampese was there with coaches and front office personnel from the Seahawks, Broncos, Titans and Panthers, who is scheduled to workout with the team this week.

The Bengals were likely drafting a quarterback before the Carson Palmer madness took shape. The team needed to work on developing a backup quarterback that could step in as a starter when/if Palmer went down with an injury. They haven't had that since Ryan Fitzpatrick. Now that Carson Palmer is demanding a trade and threatening retirement, the Bengals could draft as many as two quarterbacks during this year's NFL Draft.
