Bengals' Paul Alexander "orchestrated" drills for Eugene Monroe

Bengals offensive line coach, Paul Alexander, was one of three line coaches at the University of Virginia checking out Eugene Monroe. Actually, he did more than that. Gil Brandt writes that Alexander orchestrated the drills and that Monroe looked very good.

The 6-foot-5 3/8, 312-pounder kept all of his workout numbers from the combine, but he did position drills and looked very good. Cincinnati Bengals offensive line coach Paul Alexander, who has been everywhere there has been a tackle, orchestrated the position drills, and two other o-line coaches also were in attendance.

The Bengals in large part are banking on Monroe being available with the sixth pick. However, the Lions have to draft Matthew Stafford and the Seahawks going after Michael Crabtree. Pipe dream. Yes, we know. In reality, the Lions, Rams and Seahawks could draft offensive tackles forcing the Bengals to either pick a risk (Andre Smith), or a defensive playmaker.
