Ziggy Hood: Basically, I have just been traveling around and meeting with different teams.
TQ: How do you feel you will match up with the Cardinals' offensive line in practice?
ZH: I'm sure I will have my struggles as a rookie. But I know if I keep working, I can improve as time goes on. Eventually I know I could become a force.
TQ: What can the Cardinals expect if they decide to draft you?
ZH: The Cardinals are going to get a respectful player who is willing to work hard. They will get a player who has the ability to become a great player.
TQ: What is the most important knowledge that you gained in college?
ZH: The best thing I learned in college was to be professional in everything you do. A big part of being professional is learning to always make the right choices.
TQ: Where do you see yourself in the NFL five years from now?ZH: Hopefully, I will be on a good team competing for a starting spot. By then, I want to have proved that I am a player who can stay and last in the NFL.
TQ: Do you have any teams you specifically want to play for?
ZH: Really, at this time, it is hard to tell. When the draft gets here, then I will start to think about it. I just want to go to a team that I can fit in well with.
TQ: Are there any previous or current NFL players that you look up to?
ZH: I've definitely looked up to Tommie Harris. He comes from a tough conference, the Big 12. He basically does the same thing that I am always trying to do. He's quick off the ball and goes all-out on every play.
