Coach Kill On Brock Being Drafted By Chicago


"I am thrilled for Brock as he begins his NFL journey in Chicago. Brock is one of the smartest and most versatile players I have ever had the privilege of coaching and is an outstanding young man. He is the ultimate team player and will do whatever is needed to help the Bears win. I know he is going to make Chicago a better team and will also be a great teammate in the locker room. He will be playing for a great coach and even a better man in Bears head coach and former Gopher quarterback Marc Trestman. I am also excited for Brock's parents, as they now have two sons in the NFL with Brock in Chicago and Shane in New England. It’s a great day for the Bears, Gophers and Vereen family."

Coach Kill on Shede Being Drafted By Atlanta


"I could not be more proud of Ra’Shede, as he has worked tremendously hard to get to this point. It is a special moment that he will never forget, and I am glad that his parents, his high school coach Giovan Jenkins and Rebecca and I were here to see it. This is not only a great moment for him, but also for our program, the University and the state of Minnesota. The Atlanta Falcons are not only getting a relentless football player, but also a college graduate. Atlanta is a great fit for Ra’Shede and his best years are still to come. I know he will continue to work hard every day to represent the Falcons, but also the Gophers, as he pursues his NFL dream."
