The Bengals need a No. 2 receiver to start opposite A.J. Green, and they may have found their man in the third round of the draft.
At the conclusion of the team’s rookie minicamp, head coach Marvin Lewis said rookie receiver Mohamed Sanu looked like he had the potential to be ready to be a starter in the Bengals’ offense from Week One.
Fifth-round rookie Marvin Jones also impressed Lewis, both for his potential to contribute to the offense and for what his potential to contribute as a return man.
“Marvin to me really had a great five practices,” Lewis said. “His ability to be a returner will stand out. He really tracks the ball well. You see the speed compared to the size.”
