Bengals attend McGill University Pro Day

New, comments

One offensive lineman drew interest with nine NFL teams on Wednesday.

The Cincinnati Bengals were one of nine teams that sent coaches and scouts to McGill University in Canada on Wednesday. Other teams included the San Francisco 49ers, New York Jets, Philadelphia Eagles, Oakland Raiders, Green Bay Packers, Buffalo Bills, Kansas City Chiefs and the Arizona Cardinals.

The primary point of interest for these teams surrounded offensive lineman Laurent Duvernay-Tardif. Gil Brandt with NFL.com writes:

At his pro day, Duvernay-Tardif ran the 40 in 4.94 and 5.08 seconds. He had a 31 1/2-inch vertical and a 9-6 broad jump. He ran the three-cone drill in 7.30 seconds and had 33 bench-press reps. Duvernay-Tardif was not at the combine, but those numbers were as good as any offensive linemen there, including Taylor Lewan. I would imagine that a team will take a chance on him around the sixth or seventh round and hope to turn him into an NFL player.

ESPN ranks Duvernay-Tardif as the No. 18 offensive tackle in the 2014 NFL draft.
