According to former Alabama cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick's Twitter account, he has just left Cincinnati and is currently heading to St.Louis. Unless Kirkpatrick has family in Cincinnati, we can assume that he was in town to visit the Bengals. Our own draft guru, Joe Goodberry, sees Kirkpatrick as having a similar skill set to Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins. Many think that Kirkpatrick could become a safety in the NFL, much like Jenkins. Kirkpatrick has been projected anywhere from a top ten pick to late first round. Kirkpatrick has been mocked to the Bengals in many mock drafts and is certainly a viable candidate to be selected at 17 or 21. For more information on Kirkpatrick, see Joe Goodberry's scouting report on Kirkpatrick.
On my way to St Louis had fun Cincinnati but I have to go
