As we near the draft in a few weeks, some believe that the Bengals will look at a running back to add to the stable for 2014. The group was a bit of a disappointment last season, save for some of Giovani Bernard's highlight reel moments and new offensive coordinator Hue Jackson might want to inject new blood to the group. It's a good year to do so as the position is deep in this year's draft class.
One middle round running back prospect is Towson's Terrance West. According to Aaron Wilson of The National Football Post and The Baltimore Sun, Cincinnati's new running backs coach was seen chatting with the youngster prior to his Pro Day workout.

West was insanely productive from the get-go at tiny Towson University in Maryland. As a freshman, he ran for 1,294 yards and had 29 total touchdowns. As a junior last season, West had an eye-popping 2,509 yards on the ground and 41 touchdowns--both FCS records. He could be a great complimentary back in the Bengals' system with his 5'9", 225 pound size and 4.54 speed. Russ Lande and Dane Brugler of CBS Sports have West rated as their No.7 running back in this year's class.
