As you know, the 2012 Senior Bowl, a college football all-star game in which top-tier players from northern schools play against NFL prospects from southern schools. According to Eric Galco, the Director of Scouting for OptimumScouting.com, the Bengals seem interested in Boise State running back Doug Martin as a scout from the team has been talking to him separate from the rest of the players and scouts.
#Bengals scout talking with Doug Martin away from main scout-interview herd. Just throwing that out there for you to ponder
The Bengals are definitely in the market for a new running back and this Ray-Rice like back could fit the bill. In the last three seasons, Martin, who stands at 5-foot-9 and weighs 223 pounds, carried the ball 593 times for 3,324 yards and 43 touchdowns. Right now ESPN Insider ranks Martin as the eighth best running back in this draft class.
