NFL Draft 2015: La'el Collins Profile

La'el Collins has been a popular mock draft target for the Cincinnati Bengals and other teams in need of offensive line depth. La'El Collins, Offensive Tackle, LSU HEIGHT: 6'4"ARM LENGTH: 33 1/4"WEIGHT: 305 lbs.HANDS: 10 3/8"40-Yard DASH: 5.12 SECBENCH PRESS: 21 REPSVERTICAL JUMP: 27.0"BROAD JUMP: 108.0"3-CONE DRILL: 7.70 SEC20-YARD SHUTTLE: 4.63 SEC There are two ways I see the Bengals going with their first round pick. They will either go with an OT or a DE.  Big Whit is great, but he has a lot of miles on those tires. Offensive tackles tend to fall out of the draft in the blink of an...

Bengals recently hosted Denzel Perryman

Expect the Bengals to take a linebacker fairly early in the NFL Draft. With the 2015 NFL Draft nearing, the Bengals have done little to improve their linebacking corps this offseason. It's even arguable that linebacker is the Bengals' biggest weakness right now, assuming Vontaze Burfict misses some of the 2015 season or doesn't start the season in his pre-injury form, after microfracture surgery. A.J. Hawk was signed after being cut by the Packers, but at this point in his career, he's better suited as a backup who only sees 10-20 snaps per game. Even with the signing of Hawk and...

Veterans of Cincinnati: Meet WR John McDaniel

Based on a story regarding a Lincoln University prospect, we're reminded about an older Bengals player who was selected out of the same university more than 40 years ago -- the last player drafted out of Lincoln University. The Lincoln University Blue Tigers haven't had a player drafted into the NFL for a long time, writes Tony Hawley with the News Tribune - Missouri Capital City News. In fact, it's been 40 years since the Cincinnati Bengals selected John McDaniel in the eighth round of the 1974 NFL draft. John Scardina was an undrafted free agent in 1987 and the last Lincoln University...

Bengals interest in quarterbacks doesn't seem like due-diligence

The Cincinnati Bengals have expressed a lot of interest in UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley and have followed Colorado State quarterback Garrett Grayson. And while those are the only QB interests we know about, there could be more Bengals QB targets. There's been a great deal of curiosity when it comes to the Cincinnati Bengals pre-draft work. Confusing interest in players has led to the inclusion of "due-diligence" into our accepted lexicon -- which often feels more like complete bulls***. Why spend the money and waste time with a limited number of coaches/scouts just to have a scouting...

Marvin Jones mad about being drafted in the fifth round

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Marvin Jones spoke with the Cincinnati Enquirer this week and revealed the frustration that he felt being drafted in the fifth round. "I was so mad in the buildup just before I got picked," said Jones. When the Bengals sent Chad Johnson to New England, the Patriots gave Cincinnati the No. 166 overall pick -- the 31st pick in the fifth round. The Bengals used this selection to pick California wide receiver Marvin Jones, who recalls having a significant chip on his shoulder after being passed up so many times. "Right now, my heart is beating fast because I'm...

SB Nation Studios: Scouting report on WR Dorial Green-Beckham

Last week, the Cincinnati Bengals hosted wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham, who enters the NFL draft as one of the more talented (and red flagged) receivers. SB Nation Studios released his scouting report, here.

No. 6 Bengals draft bust of all-time: Chris Perry

Continuing with our list of all-time draft busts, we navigate to a running back who ultimately became part of a five-year debate (if not longer). Chris Perry or Steven Jackson? Originally with the 17th overall selection in the 2004 draft, the Bengals engineered a trade that swapped first-round picks with the Denver Broncos, while Cincinnati also received a Pro Bowl cornerback. Cincinnati acquired the Broncos' first round pick (24th overall), the Broncos fourth round pick (117th overall) and cornerback Deltha O'Neal. Enjoying the idea of acquiring additional picks via draft-day trades,...

Bengals showing interest in Concordia-St. Paul kicker Tom Obarski

Concordia-St. Paul kicker Tom Obarski had a college career that earned him dozens of honors and records. Though he will likely go undrafted, the Bengals may look to Obarski in undrafted free agency. The Bengals may have re-signed kicker, Mike Nugent to a 2-year deal last month, but they are also showing interest in Concordia-St. Paul kicker, Tom Obarski, per Darren Wilson with KTSP. Teams showing the most interest in Concordia-St. Paul kicker Tom Obarski: the Dolphins and Bengals. He impressed scouts Senior Bowl week. — Darren Wolfson (@DWolfsonKSTP) April 21, 2015 Obarski holds a slew...

NFL Draft: Shane Ray may need foot surgery

Shane Ray may still be a first-round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, but this isn't a good way to start his pro career. One of the top pass-rushing prospects in the 2015 NFL Draft may need foot surgery before his pro career even begins. Missouri Tigers defensive end Shane Ray is one of the top defenders in this draft, and someone who should hear his named called within the first 12-16 picks. However, NFL.com draft analyst Lance Zierlein reports Ray has suffered a foot injury during a workout with an unspecified team. This is the second time in two years that a draft prospect has suffered an...

No. 6 Bengals draft pick of all-time: Ken Anderson

We continue our countdown for the top draft pick in franchise history, going with a quarterback who many argue should be in the Hall of Fame. But it was a difficult road in the NFL for Anderson. NOTE: These all-time draft posts are re-posts from previous years. Since there hasn't been many changes over the years, our top-10 lists are relatively the same. The Cincinnati Bengals were losing 17-10 to the undefeated Denver Broncos on October 23, 1977. Quarterback Ken Anderson, started despite suffering badly damaged strained ligaments in his knee against the Pittsburgh Steelers a week earlier....

2015 NFL mock draft: Cincinnati Bengals select...

With the 21st pick in the 2015 Arrowhead Pride mock draft, Cincinnati Bengals GM Chiefs fan from Joplin selects... Texas DT Malcom Brown The Cincinnati Bengals are a team that has been wallowing in mediocrity for some time now. Just good enough to compete with anyone, but not great enough to win the games that matter. The Bengals are just missing a spark somewhere. With the 21st selection there were two players in particular I was targeting to provide that spark, two players that would be considered home run swings, boom or bust prospects. Those players unfortunately were both off the...

Reaction: The Good, The Bad, The Marvin Lewis extension

The Cincinnati Bengals signed head coach Marvin Lewis to a one-year extension on Wednesday. Was it a good idea to extend Lewis or should the Bengals have waited for a postseason win this year? The Cincinnati Bengals announced on Wednesday that head coach Marvin Lewis has signed a one-year extension, securing another year in a contract that could be viewed as a "rolling deal". The one-year extension is the third extension that Lewis has signed on his existing contract. Lewis famously allowed his current contract to expire after the 2010 season, eventually re-signing a two-year deal worth...

George Iloka expects the Bengals to draft a safety

"We only have four safeties on the roster. We normally carry about five or six," Iloka said via ESPN. "So I wouldn't be surprised if they drafted a safety." The Cincinnati Bengals could draft a safety at some point during the NFL draft. That's according to the intelligent safety George Iloka, who is using common sense and acknowledging that Cincinnati could respond to obvious contractual issues with their starting safeties; Iloka and Reggie Nelson are entering the final year of their respective deals and the team has to supplement some losses. Writes ESPN's Coley Harvey: That's why Iloka...
