All-time Bengals receivers and where they were drafted

Of the top 20 wide receivers in franchise history (based on yards receiving), only six were first-round picks (Isaac Curtis, A.J. Green, Eddie Brown, Tim McGee, Peter Warrick and Billy Brooks). Four came from the second round -- most of whom are the most recognizable names in team history; Chad Johnson, Carl Pickens, Cris Collinsworth, Darnay Scott.

The Bengals, who select No. 24 during the 2016 NFL draft, need to replenish their wide receiver core after Marvin Jones (Lions) and Mohamed Sanu (Falcons) departed for other teams. Cincinnati, relying on receiver A.J. Green, tight end Tyler Eifert and running back Giovani Bernard in the passing game, signed former New England Patriots wide receiver Brandon LaFell during free agency.
