Cincinnati Bengals in attendance for Stanford Pro Day

Stanford held it's pro day Thursday, and the Bengals were among the 32 NFL teams present for it.

According to Rob Rang of CBS Sports, all 32 NFL teams were in attendance for Stanford's pro day on Thursday. The Cardinal feature several prominent prospects on defense and along the offensive line, and here are some notes from the workouts:

*Trent Murphy, who led the nation with 15 sacks as a senior, recorded a 4.72 in the 40-yard dash after being clocked at 4.86 seconds at the scouting combine. Murphy also performed in defensive linemen and linebacker drills, and he projects as a 3-4 OLB or 4-3 DE.

*Josh Mauro, a 3-4 DE, benched 280 pounds 29 times. An injured hammy prevented him form doing any other workouts.

*Ben Gardner, another 3-4 DE, recorded a 39.5" vertical and a 10-2" broad jump - numbers that would've ranked second and tied for fifth among defensive linemen at the scouting combine. He was clocked in at 6.78 seconds in the 3-cone drill and 4.83 seconds in the 40-yard dash.

*Safety Ed Reynolds ran the 40-yard dash in the low 4.4s and recorded a 38" vertical.

*Middle linebacker Shayne Skov pulled a hamstring on Monday in preparation for the pro day, and he'll hold a personal one on April 21.


The Bengals probably won't look hard at any of these guys in the draft unless they fall a round or two beyond what they're projected. They typically don't like to take 3-4-specific players and try to convert them in into a 4-3 role. Reynolds and Skov could probably make the transition though.
