The Bengals Met With With Charleston Receiver Mike Strachan
CINCINNATI — It's no secret that the Bengals need to add multiple wide receivers in the NFL Draft later this month.
With A.J. Green, John Ross and Alex Erickson signing elsewhere in free agency, Cincinnati needs to add at least one wide-out capable of starting and another developmental prospect at the position.
They met with Charleston wide receiver Mike Strachan on Thursday according to Justin Melo of The Draft Network.
The 6-5, 226 pound wide-out has also met with the Titans, Cowboys, Bills, Giants, Chargers, Jaguars, Panthers, Seahawks and the Washington Football Team.
He ran a 4.54-second 40-yard dash. Strachan isn't quick and shifty, but he's a big, fast target that could develop into a quality NFL player.
He earned first-team all conference honors as a sophomore (2018), finishing with 48 receptions for 1,007 yards and eight touchdowns. He averaged 21 yards-per-catch.
He was a first-team all conference selection again in 2019, finishing with 19 receiving touchdowns, which was third in all of Division II. He also had 78 receptions for 1,319 yards.
Charleston didn't have a football season in 2020.
Strachan has the size and speed to succeed in the NFL, but he'll need some time to make the leap from Division II to the pros. The Bengals could target him with one of their two sixth round picks on day three of the draft.
