Once thought of as a top 2-3 talent tight end in this year’s draft class, Orson Charles slipped to the Bengals in the 4th round, due in large part to a recent DUI arrest in March, and an undersized frame at 6’2″. Marvin Lewis’ staff sees value in Charles as a fourth round pick with tremendous upside. An AFCA 2011 First Team All- American, All-SEC, and John Mackey award finalist, Cincinnati gets a pass catching tight end with game breaking ability.
Measurables:

6’2″, 251 lbs
While Charles didn’t participate fully in combine testing, he posted a freakish 35 reps on bench press (225 lbs).
