Hawks’ Trae Young live tweets reaction to NFL Draft

Trae Young, Hawks

Majority of sports fans were tuned in to the recently-concluded NFL Draft. As it turns out, even Atanta Hawks star Trae Young was avidly following the developments of the draft. And even went as far as doing his own version of a live broadcast via Twitter. Here are some of Young’s best tweets.

For starters, the 21-year-old announced that apparently, he isn’t a big fan of mock drafts.

Young then posted a couple of intriguing questions just as the draft started.

Being a No. 5 pick himself during the 2018 NBA Draft, Young has a certain affiliation with this particular pick. It was former Alabama quarterback Tua Tagavailoa that went fifth to the Miami Dolphins, and Young showed him a lot of love.

As the draft went on, Young was a picture of excitement as his Atlanta Falcons closed in on their 16th overall pick.

Young is a big fan of CeeDee Lamb from Oklahoma — Young’s own alma matter — and the Hawks star was glad that Lamb finally got drafted by the Dallas Cowboys as the 17th overall pick. He even sent out a shoutout to Dallas Mavericks guard and reigning Rookie of the Year Luka Doncic.

Young wasn’t done yet, and sent out a few more tweets soon after.

That pretty much concludes the Hawks star’s live Twitter broadcast of the NFL Draft. He did a pretty good job hyping the event so perhaps he does have a career in broadcasting once he’s done with the NBA. That’s not going to be anytime soon, as he is definitely one of the league’s biggest rising stars at the moment.
