Eric Kendricks talked after Pro Day today at UCLA.


On being back out on Spaulding Field:
It felt good to be back on my home turf. It was a beautiful day outside, I was glad to be back in my hometown. It was a great day to be a Bruin.

On what he was trying to accomplish:
I didn't complete all the drills at the combine, due to a hammy, but at the end of the day, I wanted to show very well and I felt great. I have my foot on the gas and couldn't be more excited about it.

On where he might be drafted:
I have no idea right now. I've heard from many teams and a lot of great interviews. At this point, it's not in my hands. Hopefully I showed them I can move in space.

On how he hurt his hammy:
The hammy was a tweak.

On the feedback he's getting:
Coaching me up. A lot of the coaches have given me keys to improve my game and each has an aspect I can improve on. Thes meetings, teaching me new concepts, hopefully I have the mental capacity.

On if he has any visits left:
A couple of them.

On mock drafts:
People have told me, but I've never checked them out myself. They're all just fogs to me.

On Coach Mora:
He's the man. He talked to me before this but its up to me and what I bring to the table.

On playing inside:
Different teams have different schemes, but I'm comfortable any spot, and can play all three spots.

On if he's improved his body since the season:
I definitely worked on the 40, but a lot of it comes naturally. At the end of the day, I think it all comes naturally.

On why he didn't run the 40 at pro day:
It was a personal choice, I didn't want to injure myself.
