Draft pick gets The Call: 'Alright, bye. YEEEAHHH!!'

  • Watch the newest New York Giant find out he's been drafted
  • Lineman says all the right things -- then gets swarmed
Draft pick gets The Call: 'Alright, bye. YEEEAHHH!!'

Now this is how you react to having all your dreams come true.

Be respectful. Be professional. Be happy. And then lose your mind with a little help from your friends.

This is what it looks and sounds like when a college player finds out he's been drafted. Syracuse offensive lineman Justin Pugh was watching the first round of the NFL Draft from home Thursday night when he got The Call. On the other end of the line? New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin.

The entire conversation (or, the one side of it which we can hear) is pretty great to listen to. But things get especially awesome around the 1:47 mark of the video, as the newest Giant hangs up and is immediately swarmed by his screaming friends.

And we hope that lady ended up DVR-ing the moment Pugh's name was announced at the draft, 'cause clearly nobody here was watching the TV.
