Arkansas State safety Don Jones visited the Bengals among other teams, according to Aaron Wilson.

Jones is drawing a considerable amount of interest throughout the league and he could be a late-round target for the Bengals or the team could look to bring him in as an undrafted free agent.

The Bengals are in need of a new strong safety to play alongside Reggie Nelson. They have cycled through players like Chris Crocker and Taylor Mays, but they haven't found a long-term answer. Many believe the Bengals will address the position in the first round of the draft by selecting either Texas' Kenny Vaccaro or Florida International's Jonathan Cyprien. Even if they do select a safety in the early rounds of the draft, they may look to add depth in the secondary in the later rounds as well.
