A: They are all really good. ... They're headhunters -- we were tackling dummies for a couple of drills. They all looked really good and were definitely competing out there.
Q: As a smaller receiver, what do you offer an NFL team?
A: At the end of the day, you throw the football and you catch it. Size, of course it does matter in certain situations, but again, I catch the ball, I run a route and do what all receivers do. During red zone times, the [teams] want the bigger guys that can go up and get it, but I think the smaller guys in the league have gone up and made some plays, too. From that standpoint, I am just like every other receiver out there.
WR Quan Cosby
A: That's what's been the advantage, especially during my years early, playing against guys like Aaron Ross, Michael Griffin, guys that are having very good early NFL careers. It just gets you ready for competing against some of the best in the country. So you come in [to the Senior Bowl] and you compete against these guys, with me, it's kind of like practice, going against some of the best in the country. I think from that advantage and even more playing in the games, guys in the Big 12, we played some really good defenses and defensive coordinators, some of whom have been in the NFL and came back down. I think from that standpoint it has really helped me.
Q: What was it like to work with Jacksonville Jaguars receivers coach Todd Monken?
A: He's very fiery. He is very passionate about his job and very technical. I am sure every coach out there is [like that] to an extent, but it is really fun. I learned a lot of things I can take back with me and work on while getting ready for the Combine.
Q: What are your goals for the Combine?
A: Nothing more than anyone else -- continue to work hard. The numbers are huge out there, so just working on those little things as far as maximizing the potential for that day, whether it's benching, running, drills, catching or even taking tests. I am just doing those little things, like most of the guys are doing during this time to get ready for it. [Senior Bowl] week definitely helped me out a lot as far as the interview process, meeting a lot of coaches, teams and talking to other guys.
Q: Have scouts made a big deal about your age (26)?
A: Ironically, no, no one has really said too much about it, which is a really good thing because that's not a big deal. I am just more mature. People have asked, of course, and they kind of left it alone. I was kind of surprised by that too; again, hopefully they realize that it shouldn't be a factor.
