Bengals showing interest in ASU DT Will Sutton?

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODA

The Cincinnati Bengals are active around the country visiting with prospects during Pro Days.

The Cincinnati Bengals are one of a handful of teams attending Arizona State's Pro Day on Friday. One player that they may be interested in is the two-time Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year Will Sutton.

We should caution that the Bengals chatting with prospects doesn't necessarily have a connection with overall interest.

Sutton is viewed as a Friday pick (2nd or 3rd) -- maybe as far down as the fourth round -- and one of the top-ten defensive tackle prospects in the 2014 NFL draft.

"I think he's going to be a player in the NFL," CBS Sports NFL analyst Pete Prisco said via ArizonaSports.com. "Again smallish guy and the weight fluctuation bothers a lot of people as its up, down, up, down. To me, you have to look at him on tape and say, 'This kid is a good football player.' I don't know if he's going to be a dominant football player but in a rotation he's going to be a very good football player."

ESPN's scouting report writes that he's a strong pass rusher but good against the run.

Up-the-field, one-gap penetrator. Excellent first step quickness to establish position and create disruption in the backfield. Plays with good pad level and natural leverage.

Cincinnati has seven defensive tackles signed through 2014: Geno Atkins, Domata Peko, Devon Still, Brandon Thompson, Larry Black, Christo Bilukidi, and Zach Minter.
