Cincinnati not on B.J. Raji's itinerary

New, comments

When I did a google search on the term "NFL Mock Draft", I got 1.34 million results. Of those 1.34 million results, we took 50 mock drafts, trying to solidify the popular pick that the Bengals will select sixth during the 2009 NFL Draft. With the help of Walrus, we learned that 24% of the 50 mock drafts had the Bengals selecting defensive tackle, B.J. Raji.

Personally, he's not my first choice -- I still think the sixth pick should be an offensive tackle. However, if the Bengals select Raji, I won't complain (much).

Will the Bengals look at the defensive tackle? PFT writes, according to a league source, that Raji will visit five teams during an upcoming tour of NFL teams. They are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Denver Broncos, New York Jets, Jacksonville Jaguars and San Francisco 49ers. No Cincinnati.

Now, this really doesn't mean anything. Cincinnati could have seen enough to draft him anyway, already having coached, interviewed and generally checked him out during the Senior Bowl. Also, we're a month away from the draft so a visit can happen anytime from now until then. So while there's really no overall point to this post, I thought you fellas (and fellow-ettes) would like to know.
