Cardale Jones has one of the best on-camera reactions of any player selected in the 2016 NFL Draft, and in an interview with a local Buffalo radio station, he explained why he had a good reason to be so excited seeing his name pop up on the draft broadcast.

Before Jones was taken with the last the fourth round by the Buffalo Bills, he kept receiving calls from random people pretending to be an NFL official.

Via WGR 550 SportsRadio:

"I'm not going to lie, I haven't even told the coaches this. I thought it was a prank call because I was getting calls from weird numbers all day. I'd answer and they'd hang up.

So I didn't believe it until it went across the screen.... I guess they were expecting me to see a weird number and think I'm getting drafted by that team. It wasn't a great feeling."
