From 2010-2014, wide receiver Brandon LaFell improved in catches, yards and touchdowns each year culminating in a 74 catch season for nearly 1,000 yards in 2014 with the New England Patriots.
One year and an injury later, the LSU product entering his 7th season is on his third team in Cincinnati.
Following the departure of two out of the Bengals’ top-three receivers, the team is looking to retool the weapons available to quarterback Andy Dalton.
In addition to LaFell, drafting Notre Dame’s Will Fuller may feel like a reach to some, but his ability to blow the top off of a defense will give A.J. Green, Tyler Eifert and LaFell all the room in the world to work underneath.
