Guess that explains the front page is a pic of doggie as is the lead picture on this story – typical AJC…. regardless congrats to both. If Hill can catch consistently he could do quite well in the NFL.

Congratulations to both these fine players! I hope they understand that their selection was not the culmination of their dream, but just a path to it. Players that come into the league and think they have made it will only last 2-3 years. The ones that stick are the ones who know that being drafted is only the beginning. Work hard, guys!

LOL- Tech fans – always a chip on the shoulder. Guess that’s what happens when you lose 10 out of 11.
