Matt Raysor: Life On The O-Line
Question: How's the adjustment to the offensive line going so far?
Answer: So far I really have to learn the playbook, because the offense talks way different than the defense. Right now I'm in the playbook, and I hit it about 9:30 every morning. So everything is coming along pretty good so far.
Question: Where are you on the depth chart right now?
Answer: Next week I'm starting with the second team on the offensive line. This week I'm working in with the scout team.
Question: Do you like this move?
Answer: At first I had to think about it, because I've played D-line all my life, but if you want to get on the field, I had to make the change.
Question: Have you ever played on the offensive line before?
Answer: No sir, never.
Question: What's going to be the biggest difference for you?
Answer: Blocking, I've never had to block.
Question: Do you ever get the urge to tackle one of your new offensive teammates since you've had that defensive mindset for so long?
Answer: (Laughs) No, but we did one on one pass rushing drills today, and I kind of wanted to be on the defensive side of the ball, because the boys on defense seemed to be having a lot of fun. On offense we weren't really doing too well, so I kind of wanted to be on the defensive side of the ball today.
Question: Did the need for help along the offensive line help you decide to make the transition?
Answer: Really, right now I want to do anything I can to help the team.
Question: What position are you working at along the offensive line?
Answer: Left guard.
