Jay Hayes Attends Iowa's Pro Day To Scout Defensive End Adrian Clayborn

The Bengals are plenty interested in defensive line prospects in this year's draft, making defensive line coach Jay Hayes a very busy man. Having already visited Temple's Pro Day on Friday, Hayes attended Iowa's Pro Day, scouting defensive end Adrian Clayborn, according to NFL.com's Gil Brandt. Ricky Stanzi also worked out on Monday, but it's unknown if the Bengals sent a representative to scout him.

ESPN DraftTracker ranks Adrian Clayborn as the seventh best defensive end prospect, with above average grades in virtually every category.

Powerful edge rusher with active and violent hands. Can knock offensive linemen off-balance with slap move and then rip back inside. Adequate closing speed but more fast than quick and doesn't have the initial burst to beat NFL tackles around the corner with consistency. Not a great athlete in space and mobile quarterbacks can slip him.

Mocking the Draft ranks him as the sixth best prospect at defensive end.

Based on reports we've received, the Bengals have scouted at least 20 defensive linemen on Pro Day -- which is normal for a team gathering as much information as possible for the Draft -- with reported interest in Pittsburgh's Jabaal Sheard, Temple's Muhammad Wilkerson and Alabama's Marcell Dareus. That being said, we don't see the Bengals draft a defensive lineman in the first three rounds of the 2011 NFL Draft.
