6. Eddie Brown (6,134)

Bengals WR from 1985-1991

With the 13th overall pick in the 1985 NFL Draft, the Bengals selected Eddie Brown out of Miami and what followed was a seven-year career, all spent in the Queen City.

Brown became an instant threat in the Bengals’ offense, racking up 942 yards and eight touchdowns during his rookie year in 1985. He had more receiving yards the next year but his touchdown total was cut in half with just four trips into the end zone.

In year three, Brown missed four games and his stats suffered as a result. He bounced back in a huge way during the 1988 season though, which resulted in the first and only Pro Bowl nod in his career.

That 1988 season saw the first-round pick go for 53 receptions, 1,273 yards receiving, and nine touchdowns. The yardage and touchdowns were career-highs for Brown. He also had nine touchdowns during the 1990 season.

Brown was always a solid weapon for the stripes and to this day, he’s just outside the top five in receiving yards for the organization.
