Carlton Powell teleconference

Read a transcript of DT Carlton Powell's teleconference with the media about his fifth round selection by the Denver Broncos.


On how he feels to be drafted by the Broncos
"I am ecstatic to come up there to Denver. I feel as though I am going to be a great fit for the defense."

On what talents he brings to the team
"I definitely bring the ability to stop the run and collapse the pocket. I can put pressure on the quarterback and do whatever needs to be done, I can do it."

On being drafted later than expected
"I don't have any explanation for that. Teams just drafted guys that they already counted for that fit their team. I definitely wanted to go higher, but I feel as though I will be a great fit in Denver."

On joining teammate Eddie Royal as a Broncos draft choice

"It is definitely going to be a plus to have somebody there, to have somebody on the team that I already get along with to be coming in with me. I think it is a blessing."

On how big of a role faith has played in his career
"Faith is my whole life. It is definitely going to play a big part of my career because I know that I wouldn't get to do anything in this world if it wasn't for my lord and savior. I just want to give it up to my family and everybody who prayed with me and had faith with me."
