Alabama offensive tackle D.J. Fluker is almost certain to be a first or second round pick in this week’s 2013 NFL Draft. Early Tuesday morning, Fluker may have gone first-overall in NFL draft picks screwing up on Twitter. Out of nowhere “Yea I took $ in college so wat. I did wat i had to do. Agents was tryin to pimp me so I pimped them. Cast da 1st stone” was posted to Fluker’s account.
The tweet was taken down almost immediately, but nothing posted online ever goes away, so the Twitter community found Fluker’s post and sent it around the web. Within minutes, Fluker’s agent, Deryk Gilmore, took to Twitter with the ‘his account has been hacked’ defense.
To all followers of @djfluker76 his account has been hacked. We will rue activate his account after the draft.

It should be an interesting day as ‘Bama Nation wakes up to see Fluker’s admission. Even if Fluker’s tweet was the truth, it may have zero effect on the Crimson Tide program depending on when and why he allegedly accepted the cash.
Glad I didn’t see DJ Fluker’s tweet before going to bed last night. To all the gumps who did and didn’t sleep a wink: twitter.com/rollbamaroll/s…
