Eli Apple's Mom's Hilarious Reason for Son Not Wearing Rolex at NFL Draft

Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports

If there was one thing that is for certain about this year's NFL Draft class, it's that Eli Apple has the coolest mother. 

The New York Giants rookie's mother gave a hilarious reason for why her son couldn't wear a Rolex watch or any other kind of fancy jewelry to the draft.

"I just wanted to focus on what we could control, so I turned my attention to how Eli would look on draft day and for his first team press conference. For the draft, I wanted to go with a more classic look and no one does classic better than Tom Ford. A friend of ours who happens to be a gifted tailor gave us the looks, and I chose a classic black suit for the draft and a blue suit for his team press conference. It was kind of weird that I agreed to a blue suit when Eli’s projected teams were Miami, Pittsburgh and Oakland, but I wanted to keep it classic and clean," Apple's mother, Annie, told Sports Illustrated.

"Eli was offered Rolex watches and diamonds to wear on draft day. I told him, 'Dude, you’re an unemployed college dropout. You will not be on TV with a Rolex.' So we decided if he needed to know what time it was, he could just look at his phone. I bought him a portable charger."

Apple's mom will be a great advisor as he takes on big city of New York for his career.
