Bengals Have Reportedly Met With LSU Wide Receiver Rueben Randle

There's been a lot of recent debate about how the Bengals should go about filling their number two receiver position this off-season. Marvin Lewis recently made it seem like they have no interest in signing a veteran to start opposite A.J. Green. If true, the Bengals could use a draft pick and attempt to build this offense through young core players.

Ebenezer Samuel of NY Daily News recently tweeted that the Bengals have met with LSU receiver Rueben Randle at the Scouting Combine.

Rueben Randle has met with Ravens, Bengals, Bucs, Bills and Dolphins. Niners and Pats too. 1 hour ago via Twitter for Android · Reply · Retweet · Favorite · powered by @socialditto

Rueben Randle is a tall, fast and strong WR who can stretch the field and run after the catch. He wasn't used enough in LSU's offense to be a household name but he is quickly rising draft boards because of his untapped potential. He's currently my 5th ranked WR and no.37 overall on my big board. If the Bengals are interested in drafting him, it would have to be in the first round. Are they willing to draft another WR high in back-to-back years? Recently it has looked like they are willing to go that route.
