One of the best parts of the NFL Draft is being able to see many prospect's raw reactions when they find out their dreams have come true.

The Ravens selected Justin Madubuike with the 71st overall pick in the draft on Friday, adding to an already solid defensive line.

On Saturday, the Ravens released a video of when Madubuike got the call from general manager Eric DeCosta. Madubuike's reaction was raw, emotional and authentic.

Upon hearing the news that he would become a Raven, the defensive lineman immediately started to break down with tears of joy.

"You're a great player and we're very excited," DeCosta said. "I know this is an emotional time for you."

Madubuike was comforted by his entire mother, father, brother and sister as he continued to wipe tears off his face.

"I appreciate you, thank you so much," an emotional Madubuike said.
