Tight end bolstered to start Day 3

With the 116th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Cincinnati Bengals selected … Orson Charles, tight end from Georgia.

Someone we were looking at as an option at the tail end of Round 3 dropped to Cincinnati with its fourth-round selection Saturday. The Mackey Award finalist caught 45 passes for 574 yards and five touchdowns for the Bulldogs last season. He caught 93 balls and scored 10 touchdowns in three seasons. A very athletic player in the open field, Charles will likely compete with Donald Lee for the No. 2 tight end spot this season. He offers another option to Andy Dalton, who doesn’t have many behind Star receiver A.J. Green, tight end Jermaine Gresham and slot receiver Jordan Shipley, who is coming off an ACL injury that sidelined him for nearly all of 2011.

The Bengals have three fifth-round selections (Nos. 21, 31 and 32) between the 156th and 167th overall. Stay with Bengals Gab (Twitter: @BengalsGab) for continuing updates.
