New, comments

The Cincinnati Bengals scouting machine is still out in force, visiting the remaining pro days that are starting to wind down this month.

The Cincinnati Bengals were one of 32 teams that attended the Washington Huskies Pro Day on Thursday, according to multiple reports. There were 50 scouts on hand, along with "San Francisco 49ers GM Trent Baalke, the entire staff of the Seattle Seahawks and San Diego Chargers linebackers coach Mike Nolan."

It's unknown which Bengals representative attended this session that featured possible first rounders like defensive tackle Danny Shelton, cornerback Marcus Peters, and linebackers Hau'Oli Kikaha and Shaq Thompson. NOTE: Shelton will probably be long gone before the Bengals pick and I don't see another first round cornerback being selected by the team after selecting Dre Kirkpatrick (2012) and Darqueze Dennard (2014) in two of the last three years.

Per the Seattle Times, the other former Huskies who worked out Thursday were James Atoe, Jesse Callier, DiAndre Campbell, Mike Criste, Travell Dixon, Mike Hartvigson, Micah Hatchie, Evan Hudson, Jon Kwon, Taz Stevenson, Everrette Thompson and Tre Watson.

Shaq Thompson has be a Bengals favorite in mock drafts this season [hereherehere, and here], largely because the Bengals have had "issues" are linebacker. But, over the past month, the Bengals re-signed Rey Maualuga (who was entering free agency as an unrestricted free agent), signed A.J. Hawk and are putting together nightly prayers that send good fortune to the god of rehabilitation for Tez in California.
