Bengals to Take a Look at UC Wideout Vidal Hazelton

Armon Binns isn't the only wideout from the University of Cincinnati that the Bengals might be checking out during UC's pro day next Monday. Vidal Hazelton, who was one of the most highly touted high school wideouts in the country when he signed on at USC back in 2006, might be on the radar of the Bengals. According to Paul Dehner of GoBearcats.com, the Bengals and the Atlanta Falcons have shown some interest in the prospect. Both clubs are expected to be keeping an eye on him at the University of Cincinnati's Pro Day.

He'll take part in every drill and route combination asked of him Monday.  Hazelton has nothing to hide.  After training much of the offseason in California, his 40-yard dash slots in the high 4.4, low 4.5 range.

Coming out of high school, Hazelton was considered one of the top five wide receivers in the country. However injuries to his knee halted his rise to the top at one of the biggest football powers in the the country. He showed promise during his sophomore campaign at USC, catching 50 balls for 540 yards and 4 TDs, but was forced to sit out the majority of his junior year after suffering a high ankle sprain in the first game of the season and was buried on the depth chart the rest of the year. He transferred to University of Cincinnati to play for the Bearcats, but soon suffered a season ending ACL injury.

Hazelton is projected to go either in the seventh round, or as a free agent and is ranked by WalterFootball.com as the 50th best wideout in the draft.
