Each year many fans eagerly await the unveiling of the NFL Draft day hat that each draft pick will wear on stage, especially now that New Era has the contract for NFL teams. This year, the draft day had features a two-tone hat for some teams, like the Jacksonville Jaguars, as well as the name of the city and a picture of the skyline embroidered on the inside of the brim of the hat.

The building in the third tweet embedded here is a picture of the Southeast Financial Center.

It appears one of the buildings might look like the Wells Fargo building (aka MODIS), but that's being kind of generous.

What the hell, man?
