Cincinnati Bengals Also Hosted Defensive Tackle Andre Fluellen

Rounding up Cincinnati's visits from Thursday, Aaron Wilson with the Carroll County Times, among other publications, tweets that along with the usual suspects in cornerback Aaron Ross, defensive end Kendall Langford and offensive guard Jacob Bell (Tracy Porter not mentioned), the Cincinnati Bengals also hosted defensive tackle Andre Fluellen.

Fluellen, drafted in the third round of the 2008 NFL Draft out of Florida State, is a four-year player, all as a Detroit Lion, with 51 games played and five career starts (none in the past two seasons). According to various analysis, Fluellen is stronger against the run than he is as a pass rusher -- which may explain why most of you probably haven't heard of him.

Scouting, Inc writes:

Fluellen is a solid athlete with good functional strength for an interior defender. He has improved his ability to restrict run lanes with active hands and proper pad level. He has decent range outside the tackle box. He can push the pocket at times but has not developed his overall pass-rush package to be a consistent contributor in this phase of the game. Fluellen provides valuable depth but might be too one-dimensional to challenge for a starting role.

Fluellen would be your first candidate to replace Pat Sims, who is currently a free agent.
