A: It's exciting. I think everybody who's come out here is a competitor and I just really embrace the opportunity to play against a guy who is ranked nationally and is a competitor, as well. So I take it as a challenge to against some of these guys and really put my best foot forward and really try to accomplish something. Today I had the opportunity to rush the passer a little bit more and do something against some top-rated guys. That really helped me out a lot.
Q: Would you classify yourself as a 3-4 outside linebacker?
A: I wouldn't go so far as to say that I am. In college, I was a 3-4 outside linebacker; right now, I'm just looking for a job.

Q: Are there any players you model your game after?
A: A favorite player of mine is Joey Porter. You really have to appreciate the way he plays the game of football. Every time he steps out on the field, he has a certain swagger to himself. He's almost untouchable; that's the way he comes out onto the field and that's the kind of image he gives off. I like to try to play with that same swagger. You come out on the field, you're a competitor, you step out there between the white lines and you want to feel as though you're the best player out there. That's the approach I try to take when I come into the game.
Q: What is your greatest strength as a pass rusher?
A: I think I am a solid pass rusher. I think I use my hands pretty efficiently and I am able to swat down the tackle's hands and I kind of bend that corner a little bit. I am not a Dwight Freeney coming off the edge. I am not extremely fast, but at the same time I do have a solid burst coming off there and I just try to make things happen out there. It's a great opportunity to come out there and rush the passer. Obviously, everybody knows that's where you make a lot of money, so I am just coming out here trying to showcase my ability and hopefully try to open up some eyes.
Q: Are you a Pittsburgh Steelers fan?
A: I was a Steelers fan for the longest time and I will be cheering for them in the Super Bowl.
