Randy Mcmichael

SELECTED BY CINCINNATI , ROUND 4, PICK 18, OVERALL PICK 114
TE | (0-0, 247) | Georgia | COLLEGE STATS
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Fifth-year player who was listed as a junior since the NCAA granted him medical redshirts for both the 1997 (thumb) and '98 (knee) seasons. Played in 11 games in '99 with six starts. Caught 34 passes for 457 yards and three touchdowns. Had similar numbers in 2000, when he also started 6-of-11 games and caught 32-475-1. Missed one game (suspended for the 2001 opener for his role in a June bar fight) and did not start another. Receiving numbers fell to 24-281-1, with a long catch of only 27 yards. However, there were no big-name tight ends in the Southeastern Conference, and McMichael had a big game (six catches for 108 yards) vs. Tennessee, so he won first-team All-SEC honors.

Positives: Very good athlete who catches the ball nicely. Has soft, natural hands and a feel for the passing game. Is athletic and can adjust to the poorly thrown pass. At times, can be an effective, but not overpowering, blocker when he gets into blocks quickly, keeps his feet moving and generally stays on his feet.

Negatives: Is not that big, strong or fast and does not like to block. Will lose his concentration and drop some passes. Lacks great run-after-the-catch ability. Did not break a long one last year.

Summary: Pass-catching tight end/H-back who can make a team and contribute.
