Bengals at LSU Pro Day to Watch Host of NFL Draft Prospects

New, comments

La'El Collins was the big name to watch for the Bengals, but LSU features several other top-100 NFL draft prospects.

The Bengals made it down to Baton Rouge for LSU's pro day on Friday to watch a host of draftable-prospects work out.

Offensive tackle La'el Collins was the best of them, and he could be someone in play for Cincinnati at pick No. 21. There's a good chance Collins is off the board by then though, and CBS has him ranked as their 11th best prospect.

Another tigers prospect the Bengals may be eying is defensive end Danielle Hunter. He had 21 tackles for loss over the past two seasons, but just four total sacks. He's the typical project lineman the Bengals often take in the second or third round, but they've got enough of those guys on the roster.

Outside linebacker Kwon Alexander is a name to watch in Round 3 or later, and he fills a need for Cincinnati. He racked up 165 tackles over the past two seasons, and would be a welcomed addition to a thin backer unit.

Here's how CBS ranked all of LSU's draft-eligible prospects:
