Bengals attend Missouri pro day, work out Connor McGovern and Evan Boehm

On Wednesday, Cincinnati attended the University of Missouri's Pro Day where three players were on display who are likely to hear their names called in the draft. Missouri has a few prospects with a chance to prove themselves as undrafted free agents, too.

The Bengals new offensive quality control coach, Robert Couch, worked out Missouri guard Connor McGovern, who should come off the board in the third or fourth round. McGovern, at 6-foot-4 and 306 pounds, looks to be a solid backup guard, something Cincinnati wouldn't mind adding.

In addition, Couch worked out center Evan Boehm. Whether the team would view Boehm as an upgrade over incumbent starting center Russell Bodine has yet to be determined, but it's pretty unlikely. However, for those who believe Cincinnati will attempt to replace Bodine, it's important to note the Bengals likely wouldn't draft a replacement center until around the fifth round. Fortunately for the crowd that wants a new center, Boehm is projected as a fifth round draft prospect.

Inside linebacker Kentrell Brothers is also an intriguing prospect to look at. Standing at 6 feet tall, Brothers is perhaps the second-best inside linebacking prospect in this year's draft class. However, his small stature reminds scouts of P.J. Dawson, who has yet to see playing time in Cincinnati. Brothers may be too similar a player to Dawson for Cincinnati to take a chance on him early in the draft. Still, Brothers remains an intriguing player.

The Bengals have quite a few more visits to make before the draft, but there's a good chance one of these three players could be high on Cincinnati's big board.
