LSU DE Sam Montgomery Visited Bengals, Per Sources

LSU defensive end Sam Montgomery has visited with the Bengals, according to league sources.

LSU defensive end Sam Montgomery has visited with the Cincinnati Bengals and the San Diego Chargers, per league sources, according to Aaron Wilson.

Montgomery is one of the top defensive ends in this year's draft class and is considered a second- or third-round pick by most draft analysts. Our own Joe Goodberry believes that Montgomery will be a backup or rotational defensive end.

Base 4-3 End only. Late off the snap almost every play. Rumblings of character/work ethic issues. Plays with a motor though. Backup/rotational DE.

While the defensive end position may not seem as pressing of a need as others like linebacker, safety or running back, both Michael Johnson and Carlos Dunlap will be unrestricted free agents following the 2013 season. If both of them, especially Dunlap, have good years in 2012, the Bengals may be unable to re-sign both to long-term deals. Drafting a defensive end early, when there is an extra pick in the second round, could be a smart move on the Bengals behalf.
