12:25 PM ET 04.25 | D.J. Fluker spoke at a pre-draft event Wednesday and denied ever taking money while he was an athlete at Alabama, according to NFL.com. "They know it's not me," Fluker said. "Look at my Twitter, it's all ... motivational tweets." Fluker claims he was hacked when a tweet from his account went up Tuesday saying, "Yea I took $ n college so wat. I did wat i had to do. Agents was tryin to pimp me so I pimped them. Cast da 1st stone." While "I was hacked!" is often an excuse for those trying to save face from an ill-conceived tweet, Fluker has a pretty good case to make. Hacked or not, the incident likely won't affect Fluker's draft status much. He has been solidly in the first round for much of the evaluation period, and NFL coaches ultimately care about talent first and foremost. In the meantime, however, Fluker will be doing as much damage control as he can.

If the White House can be hacked, I'm sure he can too.

I couldn't imagine words like that coming from the fingers of someone so beautiful and professional looking. That should have been a dead giveaway that it was hacked.

What's the big deal? Doesn't the SEC have the highest payroll in the NCAA?

Yep. They used to call it "Laundry Money", don't know what they call it now but I'm sure you can do more than laundry with it.

He obviously didn't pass his English classes, as "Yea I took $ n college so wat. I did wat i had to do. Agents was tryin to pimp me so I pimped them. Cast da 1st stone." isn't English. I don't really even know what language it is. He should have said "it's a fluke!" when being accused.
