Has spring gone how you hoped? “Absolutely. Everybody has taken leaps and bounds. In our room Sean (McGrew) and Kamari (Pleasant), Paul Wells, Ralph Kinne, Lavon (Coleman) has been in class. Everybody has taken leaps and bounds in our room. I feel like in every other room, but I can only speak on ours. Guys are making decisions, really like ‘I want to do this or I want to do that.’ It shows that these guys are hungry. They want to play. It’s one of those things that’s kind of exciting, like ‘oh yeah, he’s going to be alright.’”

How do you keep challenging yourself to get better? “I always want to do better. I don’t think those numbers are good enough for me personally. Just one of those things where I think Ic an get better in all aspects of my game. I’m not by any means at the peak. I think I have a lot more room to grow personally and it’s just one of those things where I’m excited for myself, but don’t ever get complacent. That’s what I think personally.”

What do you need to work on? “Obviously pass protection just being a smaller guy. I’ve said that a few times. Just being able to when I have the ball always find the holes, never miss anything. That’s one of those things that you look back at film and you’re like ‘man.’ But when you get out there and get in the open field, kind of work on just being able to make a move, make a guy miss, and not slow down at all. It’s one of those things that you might make the guy miss. But if you slow down so much a guy might tackle you from behind. Little things like that I think I can work on personally. Whenever you get tackled, rewind it like ‘what could I have done different’ whenever that happens.”
