Add the Bengals to the growing list of teams that Dalvin Cook has visited.

Dalvin Cook reportedly visited with the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday night, according to ESPN. Cincinnati picks at No. 9 in the first round.

The former Florida State tailback has made a whirlwind tour of the NFL, visiting with the Cleveland Browns, Jacksonville Jaguars, Cincinnati Bengals, San Francisco 49ers and Philadelphia Eagles. Cook was scheduled to be in Jacksonville earlier Thursday, according to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Cook is widely considered to be a first-round pick in what is a talented running back class.

The NFL Draft begins in less than three weeks, with the first round on April 27.


A mock draft that has the Colts taking Dalvin Cook in the first round shouldn’t surprise anybody by now, as it seems that is a very popular pick people keep making for the Colts.

Once again, that’s who SB Nation’s Dan Kadar has the Colts taking in the first round of his latest mock draft:

If one of the top three running backs is left on the board, the Colts should strike on them in the first round. In this case it’s Cook, who could be brought in to replace Frank Gore. Cook ran for more than 4,400 yards and 46 touchdowns in three seasons at Florida State, and he caught 79 passes. He could be a factor immediately in the NFL.

We’ve already spent a ton of time talking about Dalvin Cook, and basically he’s a good player who would be a nice fit in the Colts offense but who might not be the best pick for the Colts at number 15. What’s especially interesting in Kadar’s latest mock, however, is the players who go right after Cook. Kadar has the Ravens taking Takkarist McKinley at number 16 and the Redskins taking Reuben Foster at number 17. So in other words, to take Cook the Colts would be passing over McKinley and Foster.

McKinley would be an upgrade at the Colts’ biggest position of need, as he could be a legitimate pass rush threat. Foster would be a terrific inside linebacker, another area of need for the Colts. To pass on both of those guys so that the Colts could take a running back is… interesting, to say the least.

The question here seems to be that of need. It seems that Kadar is of the impression that running back is a huge need for the Colts and that it’s not just about how good Dalvin Cook is, as Kadar says the Colts should take any of the top three (Leonard Fournette, Dalvin Cook, and Christian McCaffrey) if they’re still available. Saying that, plus having the Colts pass on McKinley and Foster, suggests that running back is among the very biggest needs on the roster.

GREEN BAY, Wis. — A running back in the first round? Not seeing it.

That’s usually the response every time a mock draft has the Green Bay Packers taking a running back in the first round.

Cue up that reaction again because Mel Kiper Jr. has Florida State’s Dalvin Cook going to the Packers at No. 29 overall in his latest mock draft released on Wednesday.

Every week during draft season,’s Nate Atkins will look at the mock drafts that came out during the week and provide feedback on the possibilities mentioned for the Lions in the first round.

Marlon Humphrey

Marlon Humphrey’s Lance Zierlein

Pick: Marlon Humphrey, Alabama CB

Nate’s reaction: It can be tough grading mock drafts prior to free agency because it’s unclear what a team’s needs are. The same goes for creating mock drafts, which is why I’ve been holding off. If the Lions find ways in free agency to bolster their front seven, I can get more on board with the idea of upgrading from Nevin Lawson to create a strong duo with Darius Slay. Humphrey seems like a safe pick with lots of skills in lots of areas. If he tests as well as he’s supposed to next week, he’ll certainly be something to consider. At this point, I think the Lions would need to like him significantly better than the pass rushers available to make this kind of pick.

Taco Charlton

Sporting News’ Vinnie Tyler

Pick: Taco Charlton, Michigan DE

Also mocked by: CBS Sports’ Rob Rang

Nate’s reaction: The pass rusher from down the road is going to continue to be a really intriguing option until the Lions do something, or anything, to boost the edge rushing that disappointed last season and now sees Devin Taylor headed to free agency. Charlton is considered a first-rounder pretty unanimously right now, with some placing him in the top 10 and some slipping him in at the end of the round. I sense this range will continue as teams try to balance the monstrous performances he had against Ohio State and Florida State with the inconsistency he struggled with at other times throughout the year.

Florida State running back Dalvin Cook took the handoff from quarterback Deondre Francois off the left side, pharm put his foot in the ground, illness and promptly ran to the top of the Seminole record books on Saturday afternoon against the Syracuse Orange.

It happened in the first quarter of FSU’s game against the Orange in New York, and as Cook bested Warrick Dunn’s career mark of 3,959 rushing yards, a record set in 1996. Cook began the game with 3,941 career rushing yards, just 18 yards behind Dunn, and was able to run past ‘Cuse to set the new Seminole standard at the running back position in front of those in attendance at the Carrier Dome.

Star running back Dalvin Cook often rewards Florida State’s offensive linemen for their hard work.

One of their favorite destinations near campus is a local restaurant, sildenafil Hobbit American Grill, ampoule where the chicken wing special is 64 cents each on Sundays, purchase the day after FSU games.

“He tells us get whatever we want, and of course, we get whatever we want,” left tackle Rod Johnson said with a smile. “He’s just a good guy. There’s not a selfish bone in his body.”

Cook, a junior and likely first-round pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, might have a stiff tab to pick up after the No. 17 Seminoles (7-3, 4-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) play their final road game of the season Saturday at Syracuse (4-6, 1-5).
