While much of the discussion at the NFL Scouting Combine today was about the Bengals’ approach to free agency and who they were looking at in the upcoming NFL Draft, head coach Marvin Lewis talked about one position that the Bengals already have plenty of depth at, but need to figure out who will be the starter.

For much of the 2012 season, the center spot was a a position in flux, as the Bengals went from the incumbent Jeff Faine, to a rookie in Trevor Robinson, and finished the season with Kyle Cook, who was projected to be the opening day starter, but an ankle injury cost him much of the season. Once he was healthy enough to play, he assumed the starting role, but was clearly not ready to do so, as he was a liability against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 16, and was average at-best in the final two games against the Baltimore Ravens and Houston Texans.
