Cliff Avril on Sammie Lee Hill

       This is from Cliff Avril's player diary on the Lions NFL website:

"We have one rookie in our position group – Sammie Hill. I hung out with him this weekend. On the field, he’s really strong ... and big. But he’s still dealing with all the rookie stuff that I went through last year with remembering plays, remembering what you do, remembering techniques. There’s a lot of stuff coming at you and it’s a lot different from college where you might have had six or seven months to try to learn something or something like that.

"As a rookie, they’re just throwing stuff at you left and right, so you’ve just got to pick out particular things and try to remember them and it’s hard, but it’s the life of a rookie. You just try to pick up on different ways to learn things – I think that’s his biggest thing. If he can just figure out how to learn different things instead of trying to remember every single thing for every single play, I think he’ll be alright. But he’s going to be a monster once he gets it all together. He’s going to be a monster.

       This is encouraging to hear from a fellow Lions player. Cliff Avril has been through the rookie experience, and he believes Hill is going to take the Lions by storm.
