First draft perspective Ezekiel Elliott found a way to bring back the banned cut off jersey look to the league in a hilarious way when he sported a crop top with a fitting bow tie to the 2016 NFL Draft Thursday. (April 28.)
Fans peeped Elliott’s signature look during his Buckeyes days before it was reportedly prohibite by the NCAA. While the NFL follows the same rule, the 20-year-old revealed the look on the red carpet with pride. While his choice to wear blue hinted towards a potential team up with the Dallas Cowboys, his cut off button-up stole the show. It also predictably lead to a drag session on the interwebs.

SB Nation explains the running back’s reasoning behind the looks began during his 2014 season with the Buckeyes as a defense mechanism. Elliott wasn’t the only one to make a fashion statement during the big night. Prospects like former Ole Miss offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil was also subjected to some slander by Sports Twitter.”
