As every NFL team does, the Bengals will be hosting a local pro day to scout players who attended college and/or high school in the Cincinnati area. The event will be next Tuesday, April 17 at Paul Brown Stadium and a few big names are expected to attend, many of whom attended Ohio State.

From the list of 44 prospects planning to attend the pro day event, a few have already met with the Bengals. That includes Cincinnati cornerback Linden Stephens who had a formal interview with the team at his pro day. The Bengals’ “entire front office” was reportedly at Cincinnati pro day. Fellow Cincinnati prospect Mike Boone has also met with running backs coach Kyle Caskey and Ohio State linebacker Chris Worley said he had a pre-draft meeting with the Bengals, too.

There’s also Tegray Scales out of Colerain High School who linebackers coach Jim Haslett scouted at Indiana pro day.

J.T. Barrett is one of the bigger names coming to PBS and he could be someone the Bengals consider late in the draft as a backup quarterback for the team. The Bengals had plenty of coaches at OSU pro day, too.
