Well, at least he wasn't right in the middle of going.

Bobby Wagner, a senior linebacker from Utah State, was drafted in the second round (47th overall) by the Seattle Seahawks on Friday, and he got the important phone call while in the bathroom, according to ABC 4 Sports in Salt Lake City.

"I was actually in the bathroom when I got the phone call," Wagner said. "I was on the way to the bathroom when I got a call from my agent, and then I got a call from a Seattle number and I never got to go to the bathroom. I finally got to go. We got the phone call right before the pick and I got to tell them and everybody screamed. When my name went across the screen, everybody screamed again."

Wilson led the Aggies with 147 tackles in 2011.

While Wilson's primary concern is now winning a starting job, he at least doesn't have to worry about holding it in anymore.
