A new tradition has emerged this time each year. As former college football players become millionaires at the NFL Draft, sports fans search through their old tweets to find embarrassing shit they said before they were famous.
It’s one of the best parts of a ceremony that has become largely choreographed and at last night's draft in Philly, the old tweets from these newly-minted NFL players did not disappoint.
These are some top notch posts from draftees. The only problem we have here is that no one made these dudes delete this nonsense before it became public. Of course, we're glad they didn't.
No. 2 pick to the Chicago Bears, Mitch Trubisky
No. 8 pick to the Carolina Panthers, Christian McCaffrey
No. 17 pick to the Washington Redskins, Jonathan Allen
Good effort by all of these dudes, who tweeted this nonsense when they were young and dumb and no one cared. And hey, at least they can rest easy knowing they never wrote anything like Geronimo Allison, the Packers wide out whose NSFW tweets surfaced last year after he was signed as a free agent.
Welcome to the NFL, fellas!
