Bengals have met with Zach Mettenberger, A.J. McCarron and Logan Thomas

While Pitt's Tom Savage is the only QB prospect to make the trip to Cincy for a private workout, the Bengals have met with Zach Mettenberger, A.J. McCarron and Logan Thomas at various points this offseason as well.

While Pittsburgh's Tom Savage has been the only quarterback to visit the Cincinnati Bengals leading up to the NFL Draft, they've also met with several others.

Albert Breer of the NFL Network reports the Bengals met with three other QBs slated to get drafted between the second and third round of this year's draft:

Alabama's A.J. McCarron is projected to be drafted somewhere between the second and fourth round.

LSU's Zach Mettenberger should go higher, potentially within the first 10 picks of the second round to a QB-needy team who bypasses on one with their Top 10 pick in the first round.

Virginia Tech's Logan Thomas is the hardest to project of them all. Some NFL teams view him as a developmental QB with a ton of upside who they'll be willing to spend a second-round pick on. Others view the former college tight end as a just that: A project TE who they wouldn't take until late into Day 3.

All three of them now appear to be on the Bengals' radar, but Thomas and McCarron are probably more likely to be on the board in the third round than Mettenberger. That's the round the Bengals figure to start even considering drafting a QB.
