Stewart Bradley Press Conference Transcript

Stewart Bradley suffered an ACL injury, but is healthy and ready to work his way into the Eagles plans for the future. He talked about his future and his thoughts on the draft.

On how he sees himself fitting in with the Eagles defense:
"I spoke with the defensive coordinator [Jim Johnson] and he thinks the SAM linebacker spot, but I played all three spots in college. I will play wherever they need me to play."

On how he has come back from his ACL injury:
"I got cleared by the medical staff in about 4 ½ months, so it was a really fast recovery. I think I played very well before my senior year. In my senior year, a game or two in, having a big guy land on it, getting in an uncomfortable position, before mentally I was able to handle it. I feel great now and it feels good."

On whether he had any interviews with the Eagles:
"I met with some of the scouts at the Senior Bowl and then I spoke to [Jim Johnson] on the phone, but not a ton."

On what he knows about the Eagles:
"I am a fan of [head coach] Andy Reid because I am from Utah and he used to coach at BYU. I really like the team. I follow [QB] Donovan [McNabb]. They have a very physical team, which is the same style of football we played at Nebraska. They are a team that I have watched."

On whether he was expecting to go in the 3rd round:
"I heard all different things. I heard higher and lower. I thought I was going to be picked in the first day and I am happy to be an Eagle."

On whether he thought the Eagles were interested in him:
"Yeah, they talked to my agent and I heard they were interested. So, I was excited and hopeful."
