Fournette is the No. 1 RB in NFL Network draft expert Mike Mayock's ranking of the top 5 players at each position.
Cincinnati has visited with other top rushers like FSU's Dalvin Cook and Oklahoma's Joe Mixon. The club also sent its RB coach to Texas RB D'Onta Foreman's pro day.
However, if for some reason Cincinnati has the opportunity to land Fournette in the draft (April 27-29 in Philadelphia), the club will have done its homework, and at the very least, it appears the Bengals are serious about potentially adding to a RB stable that includes Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard.
