The Cincinnati Bengals were among 31 other NFL teams in attendance for Clemson Pro Day this week. Though the Tigers have a limited number of draftable talent this year, they do have players at positions of need for the Bengals, including pass-rusher Vic Beasley.
Beasley tipped the scales at 246 pounds on Thursday, similar to his weight from the NFL Combine, and stood on his Combine numbers -- 4.53 40-yard dash, 41-inch vertical, 10-feet-10 broad jump, 6.91 3-cone drill and 35 reps on the bench press.
While he was sitting on the sideline watching other Tigers work out, Beasley talked with Steelers linebackers coach Joey Porter:
Clemson linebacker Stephone Anthony and defensive tackle Grady Jarrett are hoping to join Beasley as draft choices this April (and May). Jarrett improved his numbers in the 40-yard dash (from 5.06 to 5.03) and bench press (30 to 33 reps) while showing some impressive explosion out of his stance:
Jarrett, a 6-1, 304-pound, would be a great addition by Cincinnati if they get him somewhere around Round 3. He's currently projected as a Round 3-to-4 pick in April's draft via CBS Sports. As for Anthony, he's a 6-3, 243-pound middle linebacker projected as a Round 4 prospect via CBS Sports.
