Bengals Defensive Line Coach Scouting Vaughn Meatoga At Hawaii Pro Day

According to Rob Rang, a senior analyst with NFL Draft Scout (partner with CBS Sports), Cincinnati's defensive line coach Jay Hayes was at Hawaii's Pro Day, scouting defensive tackle Vaughn Meatoga.

Of Hawaii's players, defensive tackle Vaughn Meatoga was not surprisingly the most impressive prospect. The 6-1, 299-pounder is the 22nd-rated defensive tackle in the 2012 class. He was invited to the Scouting Combine, and stood by those numbers, largely sitting out Monday's agility drills. He did participate in the vertical jump (31") and broad jump (9'2") Monday. He lifted the 225-pound bench press 27 times in Indianapolis, ran a 5.00-second 40-yard dash and was fifth among all defensive linemen with a 4.21-second short shuttle.

According to a source close to Meatoga, two NFL defensive line coaches (Kansas City, Cincinnati) came to the workout to specifically see Meatoga. Meatoga dined Sunday evening with the Kansas City coach.

According to Scout, Inc. Meatoga ranks as the 22nd-best defensive tackle prospect.
