One thing for sure about social media is it can make you or it can break you!
153rd pick in the NFL Draft, RB, Wendell Smallwood gets exposed for offensive old tweets about his new team, Philadelphia Eagles. He made some pretty offensive comments about the City of Philly itself and stated “Really hope I don’t gotta go to Philly,” back in 2012. He has now deleted or deactivated his Twitter after the incident.
We have seen many celebrities’ past haunt them when it comes to old tweets. Also, 2016’s first round draft pick, Laremy Tunsil was shown on his social media smoking weed, which could have possible been the reason he went from No. 1 Overall draft pick to No. 13. It was posted on Tunsil’s Twitter during the draft, he was wearing a gas mask and smoking a bong.
It seems to always be someone trying to find a way to bring someone down, even during their biggest moment. Not sure how the fans and residents of Philadelphia feel about this, or even the comments and looks he may receive in the locker room. Hopefully this want hurt Smallwood and he puts his skills and love for football on the field for the Eagles.
Smallwood is the fifth West Virginia University player all-time to be selected by the Eagles, he’s the first since John Mallory in 1968.
