Nebraska offensive lineman Alex Lewis waited to be selected in this year's NFL Draft. After not hearing his name called during the first two days, he decided it would be time to step out of the house on day 3.
However, that is when the Baltimore Ravens came calling. Here's the funny story, via ESPN.
“So I get on the phone with his mom and I go, ‘Is Alex there?’ And she goes, ‘No, he’s not, may I ask who’s calling?’ ” Jim Harbaugh said. “And I’m like, ‘Uh, it’s John Harbaugh with the Ravens.’ ”
Lewis’ mother then asked how she could help.
“Well, we were hoping that Alex would become a Baltimore Raven,” Harbaugh explained. “And we’re thinking about drafting him. Is he there right now?”
While he wasn't there yet, Lewis ended up making it back in time to talk to Harbaugh after he had a short conversation with his mother.
