Person First Bobcat To Be Drafted In NFL Since 2004
That's what makes pro sports even more enjoyable, even if you are not a fan of a particular team. I will still watch them to see our local heroes.
NEW YORK - Cats offensive lineman Mike Person was selected by the San Francisco 49ers in the seventh round of the 2011 NFL Draft at pick No. 239 overall, the only Montana State Bobcat selected during this year's draft.
Montana Grizzly defensive back Jimmy Wilson was selected four spots before Person at No. 235 overall by the Miami Dolphins.
Person, a native of Glendive, finished an outstanding career at Montana State last season with a Big Sky Championship as the starting right tackle and captain for Montana State.
