UPDATE: Report is inaccurate and Green will not be visiting the Bengals this week.

The Bengals will host Georgia wide receiver A.J. Green on Monday for a visit in Cincinnati before heading to Cleveland later this week, according to Dayton Daily News' Carlos Holmes. During Georgia's Pro Day, where personnel were forced to watch the workouts on monitors, Bengals personnel were reportedly hanging around Green after the workout. While we struggle to make a convincing argument that the Bengals should draft a wide receiver with their fourth overall selection, we wouldn't necessarily complain about acquiring Green.

Alabama's Julio Jones is popularly known to be ranked higher on the Bengals draft board than Green, even though Jones is coming off a surgically repaired foot that he had reexamined over the weekend.

Aside from most draft experts being fickle and changing their opinions of big boards and mock drafts like the wind, Green is primarily considered a top-five prospect, if not the top prospect, in this year's NFL Draft. ESPN's DraftTracker rates Green's separation skills, ball skills, competitiveness and toughness as spectacular with minor concerns about durability and intangibles.

Displays willingness to work the middle of the field. Aggressive attacking the ball but can out muscled by bigger and more physical DB's on occasion (see LSU game working against CB Patrick Peterson). Shows excellent focus in traffic and can secure catch will absorbing a hit. Flashes a mean streak and is capable of sustaining blocks when the effort is there. Effort as a run blocker is adequate-to-good.
