On if he knows what position he'll play:
No. The move started when Jake got hurt so we're trying to find the best line. We're working on some things.
On sitting parts of camp:
I'm alright. I'm just getting rest here and there. Coach tries to give starters rest to keep them ready for the season.
On their depth:
Not just deeper but a lot tougher. Everyone is nicked up and banged up, but we're out there every day. We're a lot deeper than we've been. And a lot tougher.
On Najee Toran:
Najee is a bad ass in every sense of the word. He gets after it every single day. When I was playing tackle, it's fun playing next to him when he was at guard because he gets after it. He wants to learn. He loves this game. He plays with a chip on his shoulder because he's so small. He weighs 265 pounds and stoning Eddie. I've blocked Eddie at 300 pounds and thats impressive.
On if Toran's further along at the same stage:
I think he's further than me and Alex were at this point just because his attitude and the way he focuses. Me and Alex were a little immature, we thought we were mature, but he's mature for someone his age and it's impressive to watch to see how far he's come since spring football.
On the challenges:
Game speed was one, and something I got used to by the end of the season. I think that's something he picked up on. Technique is the biggest thing. That's the biggest challenge.
On Malcolm Bunche:
We love Malcolm. He's a funny dude. He's a big dude that you expect to be serious all the time, but he jokes around. Everyone on the team respects him. We call him Uncle Bunche, and joke that he's 35 years old, but he's a great guy and we love having him in the room.
On if he ever felt over his head:
No. Actually, we didn't. I felt in over my head, when I got thrown in to the fire at Utah and they started blitzing me and Alex from the same side, but it was Oregon, we realized how big the stage was.
