NFL Draft 2020: Eagles draft pick's grandma has amazing, NSFW message for Philly

The Eagles selected wide receiver John Hightower in the fifth round of the NFL Draft on Saturday, which is good: the more wide receivers, the better. 

You might not know much about Hightower - you can learn more here - but I can guarantee you'll want to be his grandmother's best friend after watching the incredible video Hightower posted to his Twitter account, moments after the pick came in.

Warning: The video below contains (hilarious) NSFW language.

My. Goodness. Granny. Hightower.

The joy in her voice. The way she leaves the last letter off that expletive, opting for the Chase Utley-style inflection. The reaction from everyone in the room.

I don't care what else happens in the draft: Hightower is going to the Hall of Fame based on this video alone, and his granny is tagging along.

After a weird and stressful start, the third day of the NFL Draft has brought some much-needed happiness to Eagles fans, from K'Von Wallace's very excited family to Granny Hightower's exclamation.

Thank you, Hightower family, for being amazing - and welcome to f****n' Philly.
