The Cincinnati Bengals desperately needed to upgrade their No. 2 receiver spot in the 2012 draft, and they may have done that by getting Mohamed Sanu with the 83rd pick. The Rutgers product impressed during OTAs and could fit right in across from Pro Bowler A.J. Green.
According to Bengals.com, Green was impressed by Sanu, who looked smooth and fast on the field. He also went on to say that some of the older guys on the team compared the rookie favorably to Cincinnati's former No. 2 wideout, T.J. Houshmandzadeh.
Cincinnati has a large group of wideouts competing for the No. 2 spot across from Green, but don't be surprised if Sanu ends up being the guy. During his final collegiate season, he caught 115 passes for 1,206 yards and seven touchdowns, so he is used to seeing a lot of balls thrown his way.
With Green receiving a ton of attention from opposing defenses, whoever wins the No. 2 receiving spot will need to be able to handle a high volume of passes. Sanu could be the perfect guy for the job.
If the first few days of OTAs were any indication, he'll likely win the spot.
