Mohamed Sanu: Bengals' New Receiver Can Laugh About Prank Call Now

The irony of being selected by the Cincinnati Bengals Friday night in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft, the 83rd player chosen overall, was not lost on former Rutgers wide receiver Mohamed Sanu. The prank call Sanu received during Thursday’s first round came from someone telling him he was Cincinnati’s first-round selection.

“I’m hysterically laughing about that now," Sanu said during his introductory press conference with Cincinnati media. “It was a terrible experience. I wouldn’t wish it upon anyone. I’m just thankful that God gave me the blessing to be picked by the Bengals, and I’m very thankful to be a Bengal.”

Sanu understands that some analysts and scouts have questioned his ability to be more than a possession receiver at the NFL level.

“I attack the ball, run very good routes, am quick and sudden and have the natural ability to find the ball when it comes my way," he said. “I would say I have some speed to go on deep routes. I’ll try to show that this year and we’ll see how it turns out.”
