Every year we chart the team's reported activity during the months leading up to the NFL Draft. After the draft, we take a look at how effective our chart actually was -- hopefully you got some helpful knowledge out of it. Mostly a compilation of reports from other sources, ranging from our local beat writers, to draft websites and NFL Insiders, we wanted to provide as much information as possible in our chart.
Here's a breakdown.
The Bengals reportedly conducted a private workout of 24 prospects. Of those 24, Andy Dalton was the only player drafted. The Bengals reportedly hosted 21 players, drafting Dalton, Green and cornerback Korey Lindsey. Of those we tabbed as rumored interest ended up just being that, save for Green, who was clearly upgraded as a favorite as we drew closer to the draft.
And according to various accumulated reports, the Bengals attended the Pro Days of three players they drafted; A.J. Green, Andy Dalton, Clint Boling. Note: Boling and Green were both from Georgia.
