2013 NFL draft rumors: Reid Fragel works out with Bengals

US PRESSWIRE

The Cincinnati Bengals could address the offensive line in the draft with a local talent.

Former Ohio State Buckeyes offensive lineman Reid Fragel worked out for the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday according to NBC's Pro Football Talk -- though it's difficult to gauge how sincere Cincinnati's interest is.

The Bengals have two second-round draft choices thanks to the Carson Palmer trade, but selecting Fragel in the second round could be viewed as a reach. SB Nation's Dan Kadar ranked Fragel as this draft's No. 110 prospect -- with plenty of offensive linemen ahead of him.

Fragel spent three years as a tight end with the Buckeyes before converting to an offensive tackle in 2012. Fragel started all 12 games as Ohio State's right tackle in 2012, and was an honorable mention to the All-Big Ten team in just his first season at the position.

The Cincinnati Enquirer's Joe Reedy wrote about Cincinnati's potential interest in Fragel weeks ago on Apr. 8, and concluded that Fragel appears to be a late-round pick who "could pay dividends in a couple years."

As a very raw prospect, Fragel will require patience from whoever drafts him -- but it's clear that the former Ohio State tackle can succeed on the offensive line.
