CeeDee Lamb goes viral on his draft night.
During the 2020 NFL draft, CeeDee Lamb was in his living room along with his family and his girlfriend as he waited for a team to call him and inform him that he had been picked.
Lamb had two phones in his hand and received a call on one of them. While he was talking on the phone, his girlfriend, Crymson Rose, took the other phone from his hand, but the wide receiver instinctively grabbed at it before gesturing disapprovingly at something she said. Watch the iconic moment below:
Rose later clarified that Lamb's agent was facetiming the receiver while he was on another call, so she decided to pick it up herself:
CeeDee Lamb also clarified that he wasn't hiding anything from his girlfriend:
"Y’all really gotta chill wasn’t even like dat"
While the video wasn't what fans on the internet perceived it to be, it was an iconic NFL draft moment and will live in infamy forever.
