Bengals hosted and/or worked out Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas

According to Aaron Wilson with the Baltimore Sun, Cincinnati has shown interest in Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas, having either hosted him during a visit and/or worked him out.

If you're under the impression that the Cincinnati Bengals won't select a quarterback in the 2014 NFL draft, don't be. In as much as the community hopes that Cincinnati is open to moving on from the Andy Dalton era, whatever steps that the team intends to take (extension) from now until next year are unclear. However, it's widely believed that the Bengals are looking at possible quarterbacks in the later rounds.

According to Aaron Wilson with the Baltimore Sun, Cincinnati has shown interest in Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas, having either hosted him during a visit and/or worked him out.

In four years at Virginia Tech (the last three as a starter), Thomas completed 55.6 percent of his passes (694 for 1,249) for 9,005 yards passing, 53 touchdowns, 39 picks, 23 fumbles, and a passer rating of 123.9. Thomas, who never turned in a losing record in college, also generated 1,359 yards rushing and 24 rushing touchdowns.

CBS Sports' scouting report writes about his weaknesses:

Very streaky ball placement and accuracy. Inconsistent footwork and mechanics are a big reason for his erratic passing, struggling to reset his lower body when moved from his spot. Needs to stay balanced through his delivery. Suspect field vision and questionable passing instincts. Needs to speed up his eyes use and decipher his reads quicker. Seems to have a handful of mind-boggling decisions each game.

ESPN ranks him as the seventh-best quarterback, ahead of Georgia's Aaron Murray, Fresno State's Derek Carr and LSU's Zach Mettenberger. They summarize his scouting report with a canon for an arm, extremely inaccurate but a hard worker. A developmental project at best.

Some teams view Thomas as a tight end, largely due to his size and the fact that he was "ranked as the top recruit in the nation at that position coming out of high school."

Logan is projected as a mid-to-late round pick, if not an undrafted free agent.

"I think Logan Thomas from Virginia Tech is a huge wild card; he has no footwork whatsoever yet he delivers the football so beautifully," said NFL Network's Mike Mayock during the NFL Combine in February.

Cincinnati currently has four quarterbacks under contract. Behind starter Andy Dalton are Josh Johnson, Zac Robinson and the recently signed Jason Campbell.
