"Size is the only issue and there isn't too much I can do about that," he said.
A lot of what Arenas does have control over has already been well documented. He and his Alabama squad competed and won the BCS National Championship in January.

"If anything, I was in good shape because of how late we played," he said.
At the Senior Bowl, Arenas put an emphasis on showing scouts and coaches that he has the ability to play man-to-man and zone. Arenas is confident in his ability to play both techniques.
"Everyone knows that I can blitz, so I just want to prove from a coverage standpoint, which I have a great opportunity to do," he said. "The blitz part is taken care of."
Another aspect of Arenas' game that's taken care of is his ability on special teams. However, Arenas doesn't want to be categorized just as a specialist.
"Since you play defense more than you return, you've got to see yourself more as a defensive player," he said. "And the return thing just comes naturally. That's a given, but I like the defensive side of the ball."
Arenas' fear of labels also comes into play when asked which NFL player he compares himself to. But if he has to, he likes Antoine Winfield from the Minnesota Vikings.
"Because of [Winfield's] size, his stature and the way he plays," Arenas said. "It would be the same situation that I am in, which is not an issue at all. I love the way the guy is playing and the whole nine."
One comparison Arenas doesn't mind being attached to came up for the first time during a Senior Bowl press conference: Reggie Bush.
