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.
