Clayton Thorson had one of the more entertaining draft moments on Day 3 after he was selected by the Philadelphia Eagles.
ESPN showed Thorson’s reaction after he was selected in the fifth-round, as the former Northwestern quarterback goes to hug his girlfriend then another family member.
Thorson denied his brother a hug twice in the process, which he addressed in a conference call with the media with a smile.
“I had to film another hug for him. It was funny,” Thorson said.
The snub. That’s Clayton Thorson’s older brother Luke getting denied. “I had to film another hug for him. It was funny,” Clayton said on his introductory conference call #EAGLES https://t.co/bl8AyTxNBZ
