Bengals Worked out Utah State Cornerback Curtis Marsh

According to league sources with knowledge of the situation, the Bengals have held a private workout with Utah State cornerback Curtis Marsh.

Marsh was invited to play in the this year's Senior Bowl but injured his hamstring on the first day of practice and was unable to play for the rest of the week.

According to NFP's Aaron Wilson, NFL teams have been impressed with Marsh's recovery speed, his athleticism, techniques and his intelligence.

The 6-foot-1, 197-pounder ran the 40-yard dash between 4.37 and 4.42 seconds at the NFL scouting combine, registering a 37 1/2 inch vertical leap, a 10-03 broad jump and bench pressed 225 pounds 12 times. His 10-yard split was 1.59 seconds.

Last season, Marsh knocked down 13 passes and intercepted two while playing in the All-Western Athletic Conference.

According to CBS's Draft Scout, Marsh is ranked as the 14th best cornerback in this year's draft class and is ranked at No. 112 overall. Right now, he is considered a third-round pick but he could rise into the late second round.

Marsh could be a targeted by the Bengals if they are unable to re-sign Johnathan Joseph once free agency is allowed to continue and the Bengals can't draft either Patrick Peterson or Prince Amukamara, either because they are off the board when the Bengals go on the clock or because the Bengals are too focused on offense to take a defensive player that early.

This is the second member of Utah State's secondary that has held private workouts with the Bengals. Earlier in March, the Bengals took a look at Utah State safety Rajric Coleman.
