Miles Boykin opted not to have an NFL watch party.

Instead, it was more of a private party he and his family spent Friday night, April 26, at Buffalo Wild Wings in Orland Park watching the second and third rounds of the NFL Draft.

It turned out to be somewhat of a surprise party.

At 10:03 p.m. as the third round was winding down, the world found out that the Tinley Park native and Providence Catholic High School and Notre Dame wide receiver was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens with the 93rd overall pick.

A few minutes before that, his phone buzzed.
