Going into the 2012 NFL Draft, many draftniks linked the Cincinnati Bengals with Rutgers wide receiver, Mohamed Sanu. What many didn't predict was that Sanu would fall to the team towards the latter portion of the third round, instead of the first two rounds as many experts projected. With the 2012 Training Camp upon us and the second wide receiver job up for grabs, the idea of where Sanu fits into the offense is at the forefront of most Bengals' fans minds. For those that are familiar with the team, Sanu seems to be headed to the slot position. He makes tough catches and fights through traffic to come down with the ball. With Jordan Shipley rehabbing a knee injury and Jay Gruden's West Coast Offense in need of many sure-handed wide receivers, Sanu seems to be destined to share that spot with Shipley. While that's true, I'm beginning to wonder if Sanu's potential contributions to the Bengals' offense have been underestimated. RELATED ARTICLE: Cincy Jungle Mailbag: Projecting Some
