The Cincinnati Bengals scouting staff has loaded the Volkswagen, making their trek around the nation on a hunt for the richest pool of potential NFL talent.
According to NFL draft expert Chris Steuber, Cincinnati Bengals scouts will be attending the game between the University of Cincinnati and Virginia Tech. What's the big deal, says those noticing that Cincinnati is actually playing as the home team? Don't Bengals coaches usually attend UC games at home? In truth the game will be played at a neutral site at FedEx Field in Washington D.C. (they got a lot of money to play there).
