Bengals' scouts in attendance for BYU Pro Day

New, comments

The Bengals were one of five teams that elected to send scouts BYU's Pro Day, which included nine players from BYU and three small-school players. Most likely, the Bengals are checking out BYU's Tight End Dennis Pitta -- 6-foot-4, 245 pounds. Gil Brandt writes:

He was a top performer at his position in the bench press, the vertical jump, the broad jump, the three-cone drill, the short shuttle and the long shuttle.

Those combine numbers were good enough that he chose not to do any workout drills at his pro day, but scouts report that he did look very good in the (position) drills.

Pitta has solid hands, but his blocking is still somewhat of a question mark.
