Dog trainers?

We just adopted a 2 yr old boxer/ bulldog mix. He is great in the house with the kids but his leash manners are lacking. The first walk I took him on he dragged me most of the way. On the walk tonight every time he pulled we stopped and I made him sit. I talked to him. If he started to veer off I said come and he would come back.
Any other advice? Am I doing it right?

Sounds like your doing well so far, you might want to carry a few small treats as a random reward. It's like the doggie lotto, he may one day win the jackpot if he keeps behaving well. Don't reward every good behavior but if he's been doing well with responding to his corrections through the entire walk, towards the end you can give the treat.  Just make sure not to do it at the same spot every time or for the same command.
