Jordan Cameron Video with Blake Griffin: Watch the Browns' Pick Put on a Show

Sam WestmorelandFeatured ColumnistApril 30, 2011

There's a Blake Griffin video featuring former USC tight end Jordan Cameron that's sweeping across the sports world today, after the Clippers standout took it upon himself to hype the eventual fourth-round pick in a unique and clever fashion. 

Using his alter ego "Mars Blakemon" (a spoof of Spike Lee's old Mars Blackmon character from the Air Jordan commercials), Griffin explains to us why Cameron is going to be the first overall pick. 

You come into this video knowing that Cameron, a consensus mid-to-late round prospect, doesn't really deserve the first overall pick, but as you watch the video, you start to wonder whether the scouts were a little off on him. 

In the video, Cameron throws down dunk after impressive dunk, flashing the athleticism that made him an intriguing tight end prospect in this year's draft. 

Of course, it helps that the 6'5" tight end is a former college basketball player, having transferred from BYU to USC over the course of three seasons before landing on the Trojans football team. But, considering the success former basketball players have found in the NFL (Antonio Gates, anyone?) the video serves its purpose fairly well and manages to be pretty clever in the process. 

The Cleveland Browns apparently liked what Mars Blakemon showed them here, having drafted the athletic tight end with the fifth pick in the fourth round of the NFL draft, 102nd overall. 

Given his leaping ability and the hands he's shown in this video, it looks like the Browns could have quite a steal on their hands.
