On how much contact he had with the Bears before they drafted him:
"They called me way back in March to set up a visit so I could fly in, and [offensive line coach Harry Hiestand] ended up coming out and working me out one day after the Pro Day. And since then, they kept in touch a little just making sure they had my numbers for draft day. And they have been on the radar the entire time."
On how he would describe himself as a player:
"Hardworking. That's just the kind of guy that I am. I am not going to chirp up or say too much stuff around the bush. I am just the kind of guy that is going to step in and do what they ask of me."
