"It was a long wait, but when I finally got the call from a weird area code, I looked it up and it was Colorado so I knew it had to be the Broncos. I talked to Coach Shanahan and the line coach, and they asked me how it felt to be a Denver Bronco and that they wanted to do a lot of things with me up here."
On how he feels about coming to a winning team like the Broncos
"It's a great thing. I'm used to winning. I?ve only lost like six or seven games in my whole career at Texas. I'm used to winning and hate to lose. I don't care how good a game I had if we didn't win, that throws off everything. I'm competitive every day. And like I said, I like that they (Denver) recruit winners and have winning attitudes."
On what he brings to the table as a defensive end
"I think I'm kind of like a complete end. I can play the run. I have speed, size and I take pride in pushing everybody and I work hard."
On if he's had a chance to talk to any of his future teammates
"I got a chance to talk to (draft choices) Jarvis (Moss) and Ryan (Harris), and like I said, those guys are great guys. I can't wait to be out on the practice field with them."
On wearing his national championship ring to press conference
"I wear it on special occasions. I haven't worn it since we won the national championship. I wear it on special occasions, and this is definitely a special occasion and it means a lot to me."
"The difference between mine and Jarvis' is that mine says undefeated."
On his personality
"I'm quiet, but I also like to have fun and keep everybody laughing. Everybody always talks about the country swing I have when I talk. I?m a grown farm raised Texas boy. Hopefully that will bring a lot to the table."
