NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is known for huge embraces celebrating new rookies during their walk-up to meet him during the NFL Draft.

However, the most memorable embrace in Goodell's time as commish likely will be Christian Wilkins leaping up and almost knocking him over during the draft pick celebration Thursday night.

Goodell posted, "I had no chance @cwilkins" to his 535K followers and also recently changed his Twitter avatar to him and Wilkins.

Wilkins hasn't even taken out a snap yet for the Dolphins and is already gaining fans including Goodell.
