Ohio State's Wells To Visit Several NFL Teams

Ohio State star running back Chris “Beanie” Wells is scheduled to visit multiple NFL teams over the next few weeks, according to a league source.
Among the visits Wells currently has planned: the Denver Broncos, Cincinnati Bengals, Arizona Cardinals, San Diego Chargers and the Seattle Seahawks.
Wells was clocked between 4.38 and 4.44 seconds in the 40-yard dash at his campus Pro Day, impressing NFL scouts with his size-speed ratio at 6-foot-1, 235 pounds. Wells told Ohio reporters following the workout that some teams timed him as fast as 4.34 seconds.
At the NFL Scouting Combine, Wells registered a 33 1/2 inch vertical leap and bench pressed 225 pounds 25 times.
In three seasons for the Buckeyes, the All-Big Ten Conference running back rushed for 3,382 yards and scored 30 touchdowns. The Akron native was twice named the Buckeyes’ Most Valuable Player.

    I’d like to see the Bengals grab him but he’d have to stick around till atleast the second round… He seems to be injury prone as well it’s kind of a risk I think… Javon Ringer may be a more secure pick up.

    I’d like to see the Bengals pick him up in the second round that’d be a heckeva steal.. However their’s a little risk their seeing he seems to be injury prone…Javon Ringer may be a more secure pick up..

    Hey Beanie-Please make sure to drop in Berea for a visit. You would look good in a Browns uniform.

    Oh God I hope the Bengals don’t draft him, but that would be something they would do.

    Hmm, why would the Seahawks, who pick 4th, be bothering with Beanie Wells? He’s considered a mid-to-late first rounder.
    Maybe those trade rumors with the Eagles (#21) have some legs after all.

    I hope he likes cheese steaks. Come on Andy dont mess up another draft.

    wells would be a good option for the steelers, him and mendenhall could be our johnson/white combo of the future

    I didn’t see the word “Eagles” on that list. That makes me sad.

    Im really not a big fan of wells. I cant imagine the cardinals not selecting him if he lasted till 31 but i just do not like the guy very much. Constantly hurt in some facet or another and that was going up against crap ass big ten schools every week. Im really hoping his 40 time will ensure that he is drafted far higher than 31 which i assume will be the case.

    “and that was going up against crap ass big ten schools every week.”
    So his 146 rushing yards against LSU and 106 rushing yards against Florida are what?
    Yeah, I’m a Big Ten guy. But still, he’s a talent. However, I think he’ll drop out of the 1st rounds, which is why teams with high 2nd round picks are looking at him.

    I see a lot of people are hating on him calling him “injury prone”????? The guy was out of 4 games with one foot injury. Doesn’t make much sense to label him as “injury prone”.

    If you look at Charley Casserly’s mock on nfl.com he has the Seahawks taking Wells with the 4th pick. I think that most of the GM’s out there like wells better than they are letting on. My guess he go’s in the top 15 and maybe in the top Ten.

    i would be a little concerned about his injuries, but he flat out ran away from guys in the florida national title game on a long td run. also as for the injuries he played with that bad ankle and got that many yards, yes against the big ten mostly but that isnt his fault. if he is healthy i bet he is a great one if he gets a good line. i saw him hurdle a guy who dove low for a tackle last year. really osu had a ok line at best last year in my opinion. i wish him well.

    what do you all know about georgia’s moreno? i never saw him play, i see him high in all rb draft guides.

  15. geauxsaints53 says: Mar 29, 2009 1:19 AM

    Sorry guys, but he’s gonna be a Saint. I don’t care if he isn’t visiting. Sedrick Ellis didn’t visit and the Saints traded up to get him last year.
    Payton said it himself we’re looking to balance out our attack by adding a power back and he’s not a smokescreen kind of guy.

    Seattle Seahawks WILL NOT take the dude with the #4 pick. Maybe in the 2nd round if he is still on the board.

  17. bondem777 says: Mar 29, 2009 1:58 AM

    The Bengals have greater needs, especially offensive line.

  18. bgm9876 says: Apr 2, 2013 4:57 PM

    i would like to see the bills get him they don’t need to resign choice or any body they just need to draft someone. Just like they need to draft a qb
