Based on our chart, the Bengals have expressed some level of interest with at least eight tight ends coming into the NFL draft this year. Of those tight ends, only Mickey Shuler Jr. has been reported to have actually visited the Bengals in Cincinnati. For as much as we've heard that the Bengals should address the position, they haven't done much outside the standard participation at Pro Day or the known three tight ends that the Bengals have request medical files for.
The list of tight ends that we know that the team has shown interest in are Florida's Aaron Hernandez, Oklahoma's Jermaine Gresham, Pittsburgh's Dorin Dickerson, Arizona's Rob Gronkowski, BYU's Dennis Pitta, USC's Anthony McCoy and Shuler.
Add another to the list.
According to Aaron Wilson, the Bengals sent Tight Ends coach Jonathan Hayes to check out Iowa's Tony Moeaki during their Pro Day. Moeaki, who is scheduled to meet with the Ravens on Tuesday, is expected to be a second-round to third-round prospect. Voted to the first-team All-Big Ten Conference, "Moeaki caught 75 career passes for 955 yards and 11 touchdowns. Last year, he caught a career-high 30 passes for 387 yards and four touchdowns."
