Bengals in Attendance for Auburn Pro Day

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE

The Bengals were in attendance for Auburn's pro day.

The Cincinnati Bengals are dispatching scouts and coaches to various college pro days that are taking place between now and the 2014 NFL Draft. One position they're sure to be watching closely is defensive end, as Michael Johnson is likely leaving in free agency, and Robert Geathers could be a cap casualty.

The Bengals had representatives in attendance at Auburn's pro day(every team was represented), where pass-rushing specialist Dee Ford is the one they likely have their eyes on the most. Jeff Reynolds of NFLDraftScout.com was also in attendance nd broke down what happened:

Ford, who was scratched medically because of a back issue he and his agent called a precaution, weighed in at 244 pounds. Down from 252 at the NFL Scouting Combine 10 days ago, Ford intends to show teams he can convert from 4-3 defensive end to a 3-4 outside linebacker or hybrid pass rusher role.

Scouts expected him to test well and Ford didn't disappoint. He had a 35 1/2-inch vertical, 10-foot-4-inch long jump, 29 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press and 4.59 on his first 40-yard dash attempt and 4.54 on his second.

If the Bengals want Ford, they'll have to hope he's available in the second-round. Pick No. 24 is a little too high for Ford, but they sure could use a guy like Ford to replace Johnsion's production.
