According to Cincinnati Enquirer's Joe Reedy, the Bengals have sent quite the contingent to Missouri's Pro Day, where quarterback Blaine Gabbert, who could be a top-five draft pick, is headlined. Along with head coach Marvin Lewis, Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden and Bengals Director of Player Personnel Duke Tobin are in attendance.
Others in attendance include Jets head coach Rex Ryan, 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh, Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier, Bills General Manager Buddy Nix (who took Gabbert out to dinner Wednesday night), Titans General Manager Mike Reinfeldt and coach Mike Munchak, Broncos head coach John Fox and John Elway and Lions general manager Martin Mayhew.

The Bengals are expected to draft a quarterback in either the first or second round during this year's NFL Draft to replace a disgruntled Carson Palmer, who is threatening to retire if he's not traded. Gabbert could be a first round pick for the Bengals, who hold the fourth overall selection this year.
