Southern Illinois DB Korey Lindsey Scheduled To Meet With The Bengals

Southern Illinois cornerback Korey Lindsey is scheduled to meet with nine teams before the draft, including the Cincinnati Bengals according to Fox Sports' Adam Caplan.

The Bengals could have a shortage of cornerbacks if they sit on their hands. Johnathan Joseph is a top-tier cornerback that could be in such high demand that the Bengals will allow him to leave for free agency without so much as an offer to return.

Leon Hall will be in the same position next season and depending how he does this year as a potential starter, Adam Jones could command enough money after another season of repairing his image. Morgan Trent's contract expires after the 2012 season and Brandon Ghee will be a free agent after 2013.

If the team doesn't select LSU's Patrick Peterson or Nebraska's Prince Amukamara in the first round, they'll need to address a departing Joseph eventually.

Korey Lindsey is listed as the 39th best cornerback prospect in this year's NFL Draft with average grades in coverage and run support and above average in ball skills, instincts and recognition.

Above-average route recognition and can jump routes when asked to match up in man coverage. Above-average discipline. Occasionally overreacts to rollouts and bootlegs but can read quarterback's eyes without drifting or getting caught out of position when asked to drop into zone coverage.
