This year's NFL draft class loves sponsored tweets

Friday May 1st, 2015

Thursday night, players from different schools and varied backgrounds playing many different positions were drafted into the NFL, but other than their football skills they shared one thing in common: a love of sponsored tweets.

Those who followed the players on Twitter as they begin their pro careers were treated to a cavalcade of endorsements from Tide and Bose, courtesy of the 2015 rookie class.

Tide had players tweeting about their school colors and holding up their new jerseys, which they will undoubtedly keep clean with the stain-fighting power of their preferred laundry detergent.

The players also seemed to share similar taste in headphones, as they talked quite a bit about Bose, which just so happens to be the official headphone of the NFL.

Players also had another preferred phrase, although this one was presumably not sponsored by Big Sean.
