Bengals Scout Cornerback Buster Skrine During Tennessee-Chattanooga's Pro Day

New, comments

According to Aaron Wilson, the Cincinnati Bengals sent a representative to Tennessee-Chattanooga's Pro Day to scout cornerback Buster Skrine -- apparently his parents didn't foresee an NFL career with the word "bust" in his name as an NFL draft prospect.

According to ESPN's DraftTracker, Buster Skrine is listed as the 17th best cornerback prospect in the NFL Draft.

He scored average grades across the board, except for run support (listed as below average) and his intangibles, listed as above average.

Handles his business both on and off the field. Above-average student. Comes from a strong family background and coaches rave about his personality.

We're not going to talk about the team's issue at cornerback. No. We're not going to talk about how the Bengals tried and failed to sign Johnathan Joseph to an extension before the lockout, likely making another push once free agency finally kicks off and the market is set for Joseph. We're not going to talk about the team drafting LSU's Patrick Peterson or Nebraska's Prince Amukamara in response to letting Joseph leave. And we're certainly not going to talk about the whole process starting over again next year when contracts for Leon Hall and Adam Jones expires.

Nope. We're just going to sit back with the new knowledge that the Bengals were interested enough in Buster Skrine to send a representative.
