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 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."
