Mohamed Sanu Received A Prank Phone Call In Round 1

Shortly before the Cincinnati Bengals made the 27th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the agent for Rutgers WR Mohamed Sanu tweeted that his client was just selected by the Bengals.

A few minutes later, TV cameras showed NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell walking up to the podium and he announced the Bengals pick, and it wasn't Sanu. It was Wisconsin G Kevin Zeitler.

Apparently, someone played a very cruel joke on Sanu, who is projected as a 2nd round pick. Mike McCartney, Sanu's agent, tweeted out after the pick that someone apparently pranked Sanu.

Very cruel prank call to a Sanu tonight - very sad that someone would do that. My apologies to the twitter world for my tweet.

Round 2 of the NFL Draft will probably be kinder to Sanu. SB Nation's Round 2 mock draft sends him to the Dolphins with the 42nd pick.
