NFL Draft Pick Celebrates Selection with Customized Ford F-150 Raptor

By -


The first-generation Ford F-150 Raptor is no longer a new truck, but that doesn’t mean it’s lost its appeal. Just ask Alvin “Bud” Dupree.

He was drafted 22nd overall by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the first round of the NFL draft and celebrated the accomplishment by spending some of his $5-million signing bonus on the Blue Oval’s ultimate off-roader.

He put down a little more for the gear it’s wearing, such as its 35-inch tires and custom grille. He’s not done yet, though. According to ESPN, Dupree said, “I still have a little more to do to it, put some lights at the top, put some more bars on it.”

What do you all think? Would you celebrate a major milestone in your life with a truck that looks like this?
