Takkarist McKinley was raised by his grandmother.  He promised her that he would make it to a division 1 football team. Once he accomplished that, he also promised her he would be a first-round pick in the NFL. On Thursday, he accomplished that, too.

After his selection by the Falcons with the 26th pick, he went on an absolute tirade that included praising his grandmother and cussing up a storm on Live TV.
