With around a month left to the NFL Draft, teams are scrambling to get some face time with the incoming prospects. The league allows each team to meet with 30 prospects before the big weekend and the Cincinnati Bengals are making their list and checking it twice.
On that list of visits is former Michigan State cornerback, Darqueze Dennard.

Dennard is viewed as one of the top-two cornerbacks in this year's draft. Justin Gilbert of Oklahoma State is also in that conversation, especially after his Combine performance. Dennard is more of the technician, who is the steadier player, whereas Gilbert is more of the big-play corner with more athleticism.
Both Dennard and Gilbert have been mocked all the way through the No.10 pick owned by Detroit, to the No.24 pick owned by the Bengals. It's possible that both could be gone by the time the Bengals get on the clock, but Cincinnati is still doing their due diligence in their visit with Dennard.
