NFL Draft rumors 2013: Bengals work out Jonathan Cyprien


Draft rumors are hitting a fevered pitch in the final week. The latest one involves the Bengals and Jonathan Cyprien.

The Cincinnati Bengals are holding a private workout with Florida International safety Jonathan Cyprien on Monday, according to ESPN.

Cyprien's draft stock has been on the rise ever since impressive performances at the Senior Bowl and NFL Combine and FIU's pro day. He had set up visits with 11 teams before the draft.

Cincinnati has three of the first 53 picks in the NFL Draft, and have a need at strong safety. Kenny Vaccaro is the top-ranked safety in this year's class, but the prevailing wisdom is that he won't be available at No. 21 when the Bengals pick.

Mocking The Draft has Cyprien ranked as the second best safety in the draft, and No. 23 overall on their Big Board. He's expected to go anywhere from the late first to early second round, but if the Bengals are impressed by his workout, he may not last beyond No. 21.
