Bengals Attend Delaware's Pro Day To Scout Quarterback Pat Devlin

New, comments

According to Geoff Mosher, who covers the Philadelphia Eagles for the News Journal of Wilmington, the Cincinnati Bengals have a representative at the University of Delaware's Pro Day, likely scouting Quarterback Pat Devlin on Tuesday. The Bengals have been active this year during respective school Pro Days, acquiring as much information as they can for a quarterback that would eventually replace the disenfranchised Carson Palmer, who would rather quit than play for your Cincinnati Bengals again.

ESPN's NFL Draft Tracker ranks Devlin as the tenth best quarterback prospect heading into the NFL Draft -- behind Idaho's Nate Enderle, who the Bengals are showing interest with. His toughness, leadership, intelligence, decision-making and accuracy are rated as average. Release and arm strength are graded as above average while pocket mobility is below average.

Adequate athlete who flashes the ability to step up and avoid pressure off the edge. On the other hand, pressure up the middle gives him all kinds of problems. Can't sidestep and accuracy suffers when forced to throw off his back foot. Lacks ideal pocket presence and can hold onto the ball too long.
