Report: Bengals to host University of Cincinnati's Craig Carey during Local Prospect Day

We've written (several times) that this Tuesday, the Bengals will host their annal local prospect day, inviting prospects from area colleges. Sure, we could simply say this school and that school and this school will be included. Instead, we have this obsession with doing more than that. We actually try to find reports of exactly who will be attending.

So let's add another prospect. According to Josh Katzowitz, Cincinnati Bearcats' Craig Carey will be on hand for the workout this Tuesday. Carey was a former high school quarterback with Elder before making the switch to outside linebacker in 2008 with the Bearcats, playing mostly special teams. Carey reportedly worked out with the tight ends during UC's Pro Day on March 10, but "tweaked" his hamstring. The question asked of him is what could he bring to an NFL team. "Versatility, I can play TE, LB or Long snapper," Carey said in an interview with DraftSeason.com. "I will play wherever they need me too and I will work as hard as I can to be the best at where they put me."

Mocking the Draft and ESPN's Draft page doesn't rank Carey at all. Based on the limited information out there regarding Carey, he could be one of the team's undrafted free agents in the hours after the draft completes.
