Coby Fleener was the first tight end off the board at the NFL draft. He was taken by the Indianapolis Colts and reunited with Andrew Luck, his quarterback at Stanford. However, he wasn't picked until the second day, and that posed a problem for his mother.
According to ESPNw, Michelle Fleener brought just one draft night dress with her to New York. Like many draft pundits, she expected that her son would be taken the first day, and wouldn't need to be dressed up for the second night of the draft.
Luckily, she was in New York, where they have a few stores. Michelle looked lovely as she hugged her son when he was picked with the 34th overall in the draft.
