Top Draft Pick Calls Out Clay Travis On Twitter

The first-round pick called out the college football personality on Twitter.

Takkarist McKinley, a first-round pick by the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night, was walking around the NFL Draft with a picture of his late grandmother.

The former UCLA standout was raised by his grandma and wanted to pay respect to her on the biggest night of his life.

The linebacker was taken No. 26 overall by Atlanta.

Fox Sports' personality Clay Travis thought the picture move was a bit ridiculous.

McKinley called him out on Twitter after seeing Travis' tweets.

"To straight disrespect someone dead grandmother and think it's funny is crazy to me," McKinley wrote on Twitter.

Travis also addressed the move during his radio show.
