The Cincinnati Bengals were one of 29 teams in attendance at Northwestern Pro Day this past week.

Though the Wildcats don't feature many big-name prospects, they do have several guys to watch in the latter rounds and as priority free agents. Their best prospect is probably Ibraheim Campbell, a 5-11, 208-pound strong safety who actually didn't work out at the Pro Day due to a hamstring injury.

At the NFL Scouting combine, Campbell led all safeties with 23 reps in the bench press and was second among all defensive backs. He's projected as a third-round prospect by CBS Sports.

Center Brandon Vitabile is another guy to watch. The 6-3, 310-pounder started all 50 games of his Northwestern career, and was an Honorable Mention All-Big Ten honoree for the second straight year this past season. He's projected as a seventh-round prospect.

Here's a list of Northwestern's draft-eligible prospects, via CBS Sports:
