I was pretty prepared for it. I had seen a lot of film on guys before. I had watched some of Jeremey Shockey's pro day so I was pretty prepared for it.
On what he drills today:
I ran the 5x10x5 because at the combine I slipped and they wouldn't let me do it again. Did well. Just did all the positioning drills. I'm pretty happy with how I did.
On whether it's more comforting having your pro day at your home field:
Definitely, It always more comfortable when you are down here in south Florida. This is where I train everyday, so definitely.
On not doing 40:
I already ran a 4.5 at the combine under pretty stressful situations. I think people know I'm fast, that I can catch, and that I didn't really need to run it again. I was told not to run it again.
On being top guy coming from UM and whether that boggles his mind:
I don't know, for me, it's something kind of hard to think about. I'm just excited to have the opportunity to play in the NFL. To me just the opportunity is a dream come true. I kinda can't wait for that day.
On still learning the sport:
I've learned a lot, I mean it's been a pretty intense couple of months for me. I had the opportunity to work and train with some very very smart guys, Nomazoni, Frank Wycheck. I mean people have really crowded around me and taught me a lot, not only about the game, but little techniques, just kinda educating me on what to be ready for, my first mini camp. I am an even more complete player than I was at the end of this season.
On what he has done to address questions about toughness and blocking:
At the Senior Bowl I did address that. One on one pass blocking drills, in practice I was actually fullback for two days, just showing that I am a physical player, and that I do have the ability to block and I want to block. I know the greatest tight ends in the NFL, they are blockers, that's something that I am going to have to be able to do, not only catch but block as well.
On irony of being enforcer in basketball and people are questioning toughness in football:
That;s just something you have to deal with. I remember coming in here last August and people saying lets see what this basketball player can do. I am going to be targeted as a basketball player, I'm sure for another couple of months. I think you know, after camp, and after a couple of games, I'll be able to show people that I am a football player.
On where toughness issue comes from:
I am not really sure. I know when teams look at what I have been through in my life, what I have been through in college, what I have been through in high school even, and throughout pretty much my entire life that I have had to be tough, and that I have had to be on my own and pushing forward. I think when they see, and know those things, they won't really have any questions about it.
On difference between basketball and football:
Besides fouls not really. It's a little different. More or less I was a guy that who was hitting people and now people are hitting me.
On who agent is:
On whether he has had breakfast with anyone today:
No. I saw the coach at the gas station and that was it. My day starts on Monday. I have to visit a lot of teams, and I've got a lot of visits and a lot of workout to do.
On who he has planned visits with:
My agent has it. It's quite a bit. I'll probably be gone for the next couple of weeks.
On how many teams:
8 or 10 of them.
On what round he is hoping for:
I hear a lot of different things. I don't know. I'm just going to hope for the best. To me it's not really where I go, it's about what I go. For me, I know there is a lot of work ahead of me. I'm just waiting to get into a camp and having the ability to show people what I can do. That's what it's really about for me.
On who influenced him to give football a shot:
Bernie Kosar. Bennie Kosar was a big part of that. I actually worked with him all last summer, he drove down three days a week to throw to me, he can actually still throw. He's still got a cannon, he was the one who kept pushing me and telling me Jimmy I think one day you can be a playmaker in the NFL. We'll see.
On hearing that from Bernie Kosar:
I'll be honest I was like what is this guy talking about. Bernie is a great guy, he calls me once a week and gives me advice. It's never about what he's doing, it's always what I need to do out there on the field. He sends me drills to do every week, he's a good guy.
On working with Tebow and what he makes of his throwing motion:
Well, I was there during the beginning. I was there in January when he was starting to change his mechanics. We have the same agent, and I got the opportunity to meet him and see him throw. His motion is completely different. I watched it evolve. He had a great pro day. I'm hearing good things about him. I know the kid can win. I just wish the best for him.
On working out with the Dolphins:
I have a workout in about a week and half with them. It taught me a lot. It's the first time I got that coaching at the NFL level. There was a couple of times where Saprano took me off to the side and kinda gave me some extra help with what I should do to be even more open and not have to worry about my speed as much. I really did learn a lot, kinda how there week would go, how the first day, they unload you with plays and then you go out and you are supposed to produce.
