The Cincinnati Bengals have scheduled a workout with West Virginia wide receiver Tavon Austin, according to Matt Welch with WVUPros.com. It's the first publicly known private workout that the Bengals have setup early during the predraft process, but surely not the last.
The Baltimore Ravens have already worked out Austin, and the wide receiver has planned work outs with the Carolina Panthers, Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots.
Aaron Wilson with the Baltimore Sun reported two weeks ago that the Cincinnati Bengals held a meeting with Cincinnati.
It's all about a question regarding Cincinnati's No. 2 wide receiver option, playing opposite A.J. Green. Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis recently went into a staunch defense of wide receiver Mohamed Sanu, saying that the second-year player out of Rutgers is well-ahead of where Chad Johnson was during his second season.
Austin created an enthusiastic stir during the NFL Combine last month, running a 4.34 40-yard sprint with great positional workouts and has mostly improved his stock to first-round projections.
