NC State tight end Anthony Hill was selected No. 122 overall and in the fourth round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Houston Texans.

Hill was the sixth tight end picked in the draft and the second from the Atlantic Coast Conference.

During his career, Hill was one of the most versatile tight ends in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

The 6-foot-5, 262-pounder is known as a devastating pass blocker who is extremely physical and capable of making plays in the passing game. He had a breakout season in 2006, recording 45 catches for 478 yards to garner second-team All-ACC honors.

However, he was sidelined all of 2007 with a knee injury and missed some of 2008 with a chest injury. He still managed to total 19 catches and four scores, and remained on the radar of NFL scouts.
