One of the rituals each team does for the NFL draft is have former players, fans, and celebrities announce the players they pick in the draft. This year one team had an astronaut make their pick from space. Another team had a scuba diver deliver their pick. And one team even had an orangutan make their pick. But no one announced their team’s pick in the 2017 NFL draft better than Drew Pearson. What made this pick even more interesting was that it was for the Dallas Cowboys who are the Philadelphia Eagles’, who were hosting the draft, hated division rival.
Let’s check in with Twitter to see how this all went down.
