As I told you yesterday, two of the Denver Broncos 2012 Draft picks are attending the NFLPA Rookie Premiere in Los Angeles this week. SBNation is one of the sponsors at the event and so therefore, had some representatives reporting live at the happening. Joel Thorman of Arrowhead Pride is one of the Bloggers in attendance and he had a chance to talk with Ronnie Hillman, the Broncos 3rd roundpick in this years draft.
SB Nation's YouTube crew talked to Ronnie Hillman at the NFLPA Rookie premiere. The full interview will be available soon at SB Nation's YouTube channel (youtube.com/sbnation) Here are some excerpts.
What do you know about Denver?
RH: "It's cold in the winter. I've been hearing it's a fun place to be. I haven't been there too long yet."
Did Snoop [Dogg] actually coach you in youth football?
RH: "Yeah it's true. He's kinda laid back. As long as you give effort, he's fine."
Did he actually teach you anything?
RH: "He used to play in HS. He grew up a big football fan. He's been doing it for a while, even before I played. We had coaches that actually coached and stuff. It was a pretty good situation."
RH: "Yeah, we got a few. We got to travel. I played in Miami a couple times. It was pretty good."
When did snoop coach you:?
