The NFL draft is the place where dreams come true for a very select group of star athletes. Even after being dismissed from the LSU football program following his sophomore season, it looks like the dreams of playing professional football will be coming true for Tyrann Mathieu as well.

But in the first round?

Unless every single NFL Draft expert and prognosticator is way off, the Honey Badger is not going to be selected by any team until well after the first round of this year’s draft. That isn’t stopping the former Heisman Trophy finalist from throwing a bash in honor of his first round selection.

The Honey Badger, accustomed to taking what’s his, posted this invite to his Instagram account.

We can’t fault him for being optimistic. Hey, maybe he knows something we don’t.
