    Rutgers wide receiver Mohamed Sanu was the victim of a draft-night prank which led him to believe he was being taken in the first round by the Cincinnati Bengals.


    Sanu received a phone call prior to Cincinnati making the 27th overall pick from someone identifying himself as a member of the Bengals, according to Sanu's agent, Mike McCartney.

    Sanu and his draft party celebrated until everyone saw the name of guard Kevin Zeitler flash across the TV screen as the Bengals' selection.

    "Very cruel prank call to a Sanu tonight," McCartney posted on Twitter. "[It's] very sad that someone would do that."

    McCartney told ESPN's Andrew Brandt that he called the number, which Sanu got off his caller ID, but the person on the other end of the line showed little remorse, saying it was "just a practical joke."

    Sanu is over the prank and is looking forward to Friday night, when Rounds 2 and 3 of the draft will be held, McCartney said.

    It was probably a Aints fan mad because they dont have a 1st or 2nd round pick.

    He ended up actually be drafted by the Bengals in the third round.
