10. Tim McGee (4,703)

Bengals WR from 1986-1992, 1994

With the 21st overall pick in the 1986 NFL Draft, the Bengals selected Tim McGee out of Tennessee. It took the Volunteer a few years to click in the stripes’ offense but by year three, he showed signs of what made him a first-round pick.

Year four, which was the 1989 season, was when McGee exploded onto the scene though. He had 1,211 yards and eight touchdowns that year, which was the only 1,000-yard season of his career.

McGee, despite staying mostly healthy, never came close to those numbers again but he was always able to be a decent target in the offense. He spent one year away from the Bengals, playing for Washington in 1993 and then linked back up with Cincinnati again for the final year of his career.

During that final year, McGee had just 175 yards and a touchdown through 14 games and it was clear that he wasn’t the same kind of player anymore. Even though he didn’t necessarily live up to his first-round hype, Tim McGee is still 10th all-time in receiving yards for Cincinnati.
