Bengals attend North Carolina Pro Day

New, comments

Tim Scott and Norkeithus Otis are two guys to watch for in the draft from UNC.

The Bengals were among all 32 teams represented at University of North Carolina's Pro Day on Tuesday.

Unfortunately for the Tar Heels, there's a good chance none of their prospects hear their names called during Draft Day this year. Free safety Tim Scott might be their best prospect, but even he isn't projected to be drafted in most outlets.

Scott played both cornerback and safety throughout his college career. This past season at safety, Scott had a team-high 72 tackles, seven pass breakups, a fumble return touchdown and one interception. He could be someone the Bengals sign as a priority free agent.

Linebacker Norkeithus Otis is another guy to watch for once the draft is over. The 6'1", 231-pound backer had 40 tackles, four sacks, seven quarterback hurries and 5.5 tackles for loss.

Here's a look at how CBS Sports ranked all of the Tar Heel prospects:
