Twitter reacts to the Arizona Cardinals selection of Zaven Collins

NCAA Football: Southern Methodist at Tulsa Brett Rojo-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals selected Zaven Collins with the 16th pick in the 2021 NFL Draft and the reactions were pretty positive.

That was for a couple of reasons.

One, because the Cardinals picked a non-power five school player in Collins from Tulsa, and two because it is the Cardinals and it was a bit of a milquetoast selection.

How did Twitter react?

Let’s take a look at some of the takes.

That’s just good to see a player who is so overwhelmed and excited for the opportunity.

Can you say... overwhelmed?

Everyone is rooting for you, Zaven.
