Actual Draft Spot: 36th Overall, Cincinnati Bengals

The man that would later go on to become known as Ochocinco, Chad Johnson was a dynamic playmaker at Oregon State. However, he had to wait until the second round until he was drafted by the Bengals in 2001 with the 36th overall selection.

He played all but one of his 11 NFL seasons in Cincinnati, finishing with the Patriots in 2011.

Johnson posted 11,059 yards and 67 touchdowns during his prestigious career, and was one of the best receivers from his class. The Chicago Bears could’ve used that type of production from their receiving corps during the 2000s. Instead, they used the eighth overall selection that year on Michigan’s David Terrell.
