With the NFL Draft less than three weeks away, the Pro Day circuit is over in terms of schools showcasing their top draft-eligible prospects.
There are still personal Pro Days certain players hold, but for the most part, it's all about pre-draft visits now as teams host certain prospects they may be planning to draft this year.
That might be the case with the Bengals and offensive tackle Jake Fisher, who is set to visit Cincinnati in the coming days:

Bengals offensive line coach Paul Alexander was previously in Eugene attending Oregon's Pro Day, so he's already gotten at least one up-close look at Fisher. Most mocks have Fisher going somewhere in the second round.
However, Bleacher Report's Ian Wharton is very high on the Ducks lineman to the point he thinks he could be drafted at the end of the first round.
Fisher isn’t the perfect tackle prospect, though. He could use more functional strength on his body, and he has some injury concerns. His ability to play either tackle spot or guard shouldn’t be questioned, though. A year from now, he will very likely be "that guy" teams wish they didn’t pass up.
Fisher can play both guard and tackle, and that's the kind of versatility the Bengals love having in the trenches. It would be a bit of a reach to take him at 21, but if Cincinnati can move down with a team, like say the Cowboys, maybe we'll see the Bengals grab Fisher near the end of the first round.
