Cardinals S Tony Jefferson knows what it’s like to be passed over in the NFL Draft

Cardinals safety Tony Jefferson is enjoying the draft like any football fan.

Heck, he even created his own mock draft that we’re tracking along with him.

Being an actual NFL player, Jefferson doesn’t have the fondest personal memory of the event. He went undrafted out of Oklahoma. But hey, ask him about his draft experience and he’ll tell you.

One fan on Twitter happened to do just that — maybe he didn’t realize Jefferson wasn’t picked — and that led Jefferson to post a series of tweets explaining his thought process as he watched three days of the draft without hearing his name.
