NFL prospect cruelly punk’d on draft night

Talk about your worst nightmare for an NFL draft prospect. Rutgers wide receiver Mohamed Sanu was on pins and needles Thursday night as teams made their first-round selections.

An unidentified prankster called his family’s home in South Brunswick, N.J, identified himself as a Bengals executive and told Sanu the club was taking him with the 27th pick overall.

That set off a wild celebration — until they they saw on TV that Cincy had actually selected Wisconsin offensive lineman Kevin Zeitler.

“You have people that are haters that will do anything,” his upset mother Aminata Koroma told the New York Daily News Friday. “Sometimes, people are just sick.”

But the story has a happy ending. On Friday, Sanu was actually picked by the Bengals, this time in the third round with the 83rd overall pick.

An exultant Sanu tweeted: “Thank God!! Im a Bengal for REAL!!!!”
