National Football Post is reporting today that Kentucky ILB Micah Johnson, a two-time second team All-SEC LB, is in Cincinnati today for a private workout with the Bengals.

Johnson is coming of a knee injury suffered in the Music City Bowl, and reportedly ran a slow 4.92 40-yard dash at the combine.  He is currently projected to go in the 5-7 round range.

The Bengals are in the market for a middle linebacker to groom as an eventual replacement for veteran Dhani Jones.  Johnson has excellent size for a MIKE Linebacker at 6-2 258 pounds.  More info on Johnson can be found here.
