The NFL draft is one of the most highly anticipated and talked-about events in sports.

There's so much excitement and pure joy that goes on that day. Every team gets a fresh start and there's plenty of reason for optimism.

It's also a day where grown men who are used to taking hard knocks on the football field are overcome with emotion.

Shortly after the start of the draft, Von Miller, the draft's top linebacker prospect from Texas A&M, had a Tom Brady moment.

To his credit, though, Miller was fighting back tears of joy after being selected No. 2 overall by the Denver Broncos. Brady's sobs were motivated by anger and resentment in being drafted so low and nearly forgotten. 

Whatever the reason, there's no shame in crying, Von.

You just made your momma proud. And you just made yourself a millionaire.

Back in Denver you just made Broncos fans fight back tears because you just made their horrific defense that much better.  

As long as you bring that same kind of emotion and intensity to the football field when you wear your Broncos uniform, you'll be a star in the making.
