The Cincinnati Bengals’ intrigue with Senior Bowl players they coached continues.

Former Penn State defensive lineman Robert Windsor is the latest player to have recently talked with the Bengals over FaceTime, per Justin Melo of The Draft Wire.

Before Windsor joined fellow seniors in Mobile, Alabama to work under Bengals’ defensive line coach Nick Eason, he spent five years with the Nittany Lions. After redshirting his freshman year and spending the following two years as a rotational player, Windsor emerged as a starter in his final two seasons. He recorded over 15 tackles for loss and 10 sacks in those two years.

At the NFL combine, Windsor ran an impressive 4.9 flat in the 40-yard dash after measuring in at 6-5 and 290 pounds. His 4.44 short shuttle and 7.47 3-cone times were also impressive for his size.

For the Bengals, Windsor would be an ideal backup 3-technique who could also play 5-technique in certain packages as well. Both of those positions could use some depth with were the roster is now. The Bengals could also comfortably wait until after their first four picks to draft Windsor as well; Dane Brugler of The Athletic graded him as fifth-sixth round player.

The odds of multiple Senior Bowl players going to the Bengals is relatively high. Windsor should be listing the Bengals as one of the favorites to draft him.
