CeeDee Lamb Comments On Viral Draft Moment With His Girlfriend

CeeDee Lamb and his girlfriend on ESPN

On Thursday night, the Dallas Cowboys lucked into one of the best picks of the first round of the 2020 NFL draft.

The team selected former Oklahoma star wide receiver CeeDee Lamb with the No. 17 overall pick in the 2020 NFL draft. Many NFL analysts expected the former Sooners star to go a little earlier in the draft.

When he made it to No. 17, the Cowboys jumped at the chance to add him to a receiving corps with Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup. Perhaps the moment of the NFL draft happened after the Cowboys made their selection.

While Lamb took the phone call from Dallas, his girlfriend tried to take his other phone. He wasn't having it. He immediately snatched the phone back out of her hand while still on the call with the Cowboys.

The video quickly went viral on social media. However, CeeDee Lamb made it clear, there's more to the story.

"Y'all really gotta chill wasn't even like dat," he said on Twitter.

She later sent a message to Dallas fans with a photo of her wearing a Cowboys hat along with the caption "cowboynation."

It seems like social media made a big deal out of nothing - not for the first time.

Good luck in Dallas, CeeDee.
