Football was the furthest thing from D’Joun Smith’s mind as he entered his graduation ceremony at FAU on Friday, he was the first in his family to graduate from college.

Just 10 minutes before the second day of the NFL Draft started on Friday night the Smith family was still celebrating their brand new graduate.

To cap off the perfect day, Smith was selected by the Indianapolis Colts in the third round.
