The Cleveland Browns welcomed their 10 draft picks to the team on Thursday night by hosting a rookie dinner. It wasnt all rookies at the event, as the team asked Joe Thomas the longest-tenured Brown to attend.

David Njoku, one of Clevelands three first-round picks, probably wishes his first meeting withThomas went a little bit differently becauseit was definitely awkward. He thought Thomas was a coach, which I guess is an honest mistake.

But really? He thought this guy was a coach?!

Thomas (kind of) went along with it, telling Njoku that hes a player/coach who takes the field on Sundays.

Njoku could only laugh at himself.

Thomas and Njoku will get to know each other fairly well when the rookie is on the line blocking this season.
