Tony Jefferson Tweets His Draft Experience

Undrafted safety is willing to have some fun at his own expense


Cardinals safety Tony Jefferson was once undrafted.

Tony Jefferson went undrafted. This was something he was not happy about at the time, back in 2013. These days, though, Jefferson is a key piece of the Cardinals' defense and is going into 2016 knowing he will be playing for a free-agent contract next offseason.

Still, on draft weekend, Jefferson -- who did his own mock draft the other day -- wanted to let potential draftees he was excited for them. 

Super excited for these men about to get drafted. Most important part is making your parents proud man! Good luck to everyone — Tony Jefferson (@tonyjefferson1) April 28, 2016

Someone tweeted back asking Jefferson about his favorite draft memory -- apparently not realizing Jefferson went undrafted. A painful shot. But Jefferson responded with a hilarious string of tweets:
