CNNSI Host: Welcome to today's NFL Draft chat with Georgia Tech QB and Heisman candidate Joe Hamilton. Hi Joe, thanks for joining us.
CNNSI Host: First off, how are you feeling right now? This must be a week full of a lot of mixed-up emotions.
From Rob G.: Some scouts and personnel people say that you're too short for the quarterback for the NFL? What do you have to say to them?
From Joey Cagiano: Will you go to CFL to get a chance at quarterback? I would hate to see another talented quarterback be robbed of his chance in the NFL due to his lack of size a la Doug Flutie.
From Guest: How do you think you compare with the other quarterbacks, such as Chad Pennington, who are projected to be drafted ahead of you?
From Kevin Korstjens: Being such a great athlete, are you open to playing whatever position (like Kordell did his rookie year) your team needs you to play or are you set on only playing quarterback?
From Jim: Hi, I'm a big Falcons and GT fan. What are the chances that you will end up playing for the Falcons?
From Aaron: What teams are interested in you? Do they give you feedback or are you clueless on who will take you this weekend? What are some of the teams that you think you would fit in best with?
From Ian Pemberton: Joe, there has been speculation that the Redskins may take a quarterback in the later rounds. How do you feel about the possibility of playing in Washington?
From Guest: WHEN you get your contract, what are some of the first plans you have for your well-earned fortune?
From Jay Calhoon: Is there any team that you would really love to play for? Would you like to stay in the warm weather or don't you care? I would really like to see you play for the Dolphins, and they are in serious need of a QB.
From Guest: What are your plans for this weekend? Will you be waiting for the call alone, or with family and friends.
From Peter Bailey: Do you think that Georgia Tech will be as competitive without you this year?
From ESW III: Joe, with all due respect to Ron Dayne, a lot of people feel you deserved to win the Heisman. How do you think NOT winning it will affect your draft position?
From John J.: Is there a certain quarterback you emulate, or do you create your own QB style?
From Guest: What kind of pro do you think your teammate Dez White can be?
From guntle: Do you get nervouse before games? If you do what do you do to help calm down?
CNNSI Host: That's all the time we have for today. Thanks for joining us, Joe. Good luck in the draft.
