Filed under "let's make so many rules that half of them make no sense", A.J. Green's participation during Georgia's Pro Day was observed by scouts, talent evaluators, teams Presidents and heads of state, inside a room through television monitors because the quarterback, George Whitfield, came from outside of the area. We don't pretend to understand the rules; we'll just complain that they exist, like speed limit signs (is there a bigger waste of precious metal resources?).

According to Macon.com, the Cincinnati Bengals were very interested in the wide receiver.

Scouts from the Cincinnati Bengals, who own the fourth pick in the draft, seemed to be hanging around Green a lot. That team figures to bring Green in for an individual workout soon, as do other teams.

As Jason pointed out on Tuesday, the Bengals have Julio Jones listed about Green on their big board because Jones is a better blocker and the team doesn't like Green as a practice player.

Even if the Bengals don't draft a wide receiver with their fourth overall pick, its not like the team won't have an opportunity later. For some reason, there are some that believe the NFL draft is only about the first round, which is a remarkable conclusion considering that most teams are developed on their ability to draft talent later during the draft.
