WATCH: Ohio State receiver Garrett Wilson gets ‘heartfelt’ message from dad after being selected in NFL draft

·1 min read

Garrett Wilson can forever call himself a first-round NFL draft pick. He was the first Buckeye off the board on Thursday night as the No. 10 overall pick to the New York Jets.

It was no doubt a lifelong dream come true for himself, and in some ways, his parents living vicariously through him as well. Wilson will forever be remembered as one of the best Ohio State receivers of all time and for good reason. He is one of the most dynamic OSU receivers to ever don the scarlet and gray.

Originally from Ohio, Wilson moved to Austin, Texas, and came back home to be a Buckeye. I can’t imagine what it’s like to have a son drafted in the first round of the NFL draft, but Wilson’s dad put the moment into words spectacularly. If you haven’t seen the message he had for his son after the massive occasion, you can click on the below and let it play thanks to the NFL’s official Twitter page.

The moment when a draft prospect gets selected is obviously the pinnacle moment, but getting some of these sidebar videos and calls are what we’re all here for too.
