Emotions were at an all-time high for Takkarist McKinley when the Atlanta Falcons selected him with the No. 26 overall pick at the NFL Draft on Thursday.

The UCLA cornerback was raised by his grandmother and right before she died, he made a promise to her that he would make a Division 1 team.

McKinley even brought a photo of his late grandmother with him to the podium and from there, his emotions took over dropping an F-bomb and proclaiming the league can, "fine him later."
