The good news for C.J. Fiedorowicz, one of the top tight end prospects, is he’s making the pre-draft rounds.
The bad news is he’s a little too overzealous about it.
On Friday, Fiedorowicz, whose given first name is Colton John, tweeted a photo of the itinerary for his meeting with the Jets, which took place yesterday.
We’re treated to a cool peak into the visiting process, but also a glaring bit of personal info — the former Iowa Hawkeye’s other digits.

The 6-foot-5, 265-pound Fiedorowicz is slated to be drafted in the mid-rounds, possibly as early as the third. Before he gets his name called next month, though, he might want to increase his data plan.
Or, you know, keep some things to himself.
UPDATE: Fiedorowicz (smartly) deleted the tweet, but not before I (smartly) grabbed a screenshot.
UPDATE #2: The plot thickens. It appears we’ve been “catfished.”
The real draft prospect CJ Fiedorowicz just texted me — he said @CJFiedorowicz is a FAKE account. I'll get a screenshot in a sec

Scary part is that C.J. posted that itinerary on his Instagram account 2 days ago, with enough data to change the flight. Just deleted.

According to ChicagoFootball.com, Fiedorowicz’s mother, Leann, said her son’s Twitter account was hacked. He suggests otherwise — an imposter.
Fiedorowicz’s mother, Leann, said Friday that her son’s social media was hacked. Instead, it appears someone took after a several photos – including one displaying an agenda for a visit with the New York Jets – from the Johnsburg native’s Instagram account and posted on the account @CJFiedorowicz.
Fiedorowicz said in a text message Wednesday that he had a Twitter account established but that he has never posted on it. He said that the newly created account wasn’t his.
