2011 NFL Draft: Madden Football Coverboy Peyton Hillis To Announce Browns 1st Round Pick

Newly crowned Madden ’12 coverboy Peyton Hillis will be announced to the crowd at Radio City Music Hall tonight by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, then will announce the 1st Round pick of the Cleveland Browns, this according to Browns media relations.

Hillis won the fan-vote that decided who would be on the cover over Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mike Vick, receiving 66% of the vote. The NFL Draft will cap a busy day for Hillis, who will take part in a photo shoot for the game, appear as a guest on Late Night with David Letterman Thursday night, and announce the Browns pick – the 6th pick – in Thursday’s first round.

While some are nervous that Hillis will fall victim to the infamous ‘Madden Curse’, the former Arkansas Razorback says he’s ready for the challenge.

“For people to believe in this so-called curse, I can’t wait to prove [them] wrong.” Keep on truckin’, Peyton!
