The shut-down defensive back could go as high as No. 4 overall to the New York Jets. Known as much for his boisterous personality as his elite-level play on the field, Gardner showed up to the draft in Las Vegas sporting an epic “sauce” necklace with what appears to be a bottle of some sort attached.
Talk about looking the part. And in reality, there’s no reason for Ahmad Gardner to be less-than confident in his ability to be a high pick once Thursday evening comes calling. “Sauce,” as he is known, did not allow a single touchdown during his three year college career with Cincinnati. He also recorded a whopping nine interceptions during that span.
He’s also confident in his ability to dominate at the NFL level out of the gate.
“I feel like I’m the chosen one. I feel like I’m the best in the draft. There’s no doubt about it. There’s no way I can be a bust. That shouldn’t even be an option.”Ahmad Gardner to the media, April 27
Whether it’s the Jets or another team, someone is going to get a highly-confident youngster to join their team here within the next few hours. It doesn’t hurt that he has the style to match.
