The best 4th round pick in Bengals’ franchise history

Congrats to Munoz, Boomer & Kenny Anderson for cleaning up on the rounds 1, 2, 3 top pick awards.

Round 1: A Munoz

Round 2: B Esiason 51%, C Johnson 23%, C Dillon 12%

Round 3: K Anderson 81%, D Fulcher 11%

Unfrotunately in round 4 the pickings get very slim with names much less prolific than Munoz, Esiason and Anderson

So on to the candidates:



.

Mike Boryla QB, 1974 (#87 overall)

0 First Team All-Pro

1 Pro-Bowl

1 Years as a Starter

Drafted by Cincy, he played 3 seasons in Philly then 1 in Tampa during his short NFL career.

So why did I add him? He was only 1 of 3 guys drafted in round 4 who have ever made a pro-bowl (Rudi Johnson & Tremain Mack).

Although in his pro-bowl season he only completed about 1/2 of his passes and has twice as many INT’s as TD’s.

For his career he ended with 2,838 passing yards, 20 TD’s and 29 INT’s.

.

Robert Geathers DE, 2004 (#117 overall)

0 First Team All-Pro

0 Pro-Bowl

6 Years as a Starter

Has 165 tackles and 30.0 sacks over his career which is still in progress.

.

Ricardo McDonald LB, 1992 (#88 overall)

0 First Team All-Pro

0 Pro-Bowl

8 Years as a Starter

Kingston Jamaica’s own finished with 448 tackles and 14.5 sacks over an 8 year career, which he was a starter in all 8 of his seasons.

.

Bernard Jackson DB, 1972 (#81 overall)

0 First Team All-Pro

0 Pro-Bowl

5 Years as a Starter

Played the first 5 of his 10 NFL seasons in Cincy.

Was mainly a backup free safety and kick returner who finished with 17 INT’s in his career and a 23.9 kick return average for Cincy.

.

Rudi Johnson RB, 2001 (#100 overall)

0 First Team All-Pro

1 Pro-Bowl

5 Years as a Starter

As Corey Dillon’s replacement he had 3 straight seasons of 1,300 yards and 12 TD’s.

Was never much of a breakaway threat, but a plodding and consistent runner who churned out lot of yards over a few seasons

Made his 1 pro-bowl appearance in his first full year as a starter.

Finished with 1,517 attempts for 5,979 yards (3.9 ypc) and 49 TD’s.

.

.

Mike Wilson OT, 1977 (#103 overall)

12 Years as a Starter

By far he had the longest tenure as an NFL starter of all the Bengals’ 4th round selections. He started for 12 seasons and played 174 games at tackle for the Bengals and then for Seattle later in his career.

Not exactly a lot to pick from. I refrained from any very recent players (like Geno) because it's way too early to tell how they will pan out. Anyway, happy voting....
