Charlie Bernstein: What is your preferred position on the next level?
Nate Solder: If they want me to play anywhere, that's what I'll do. Wherever they need me.
CB: How tall are you exactly?
NS: I'm 6'9"
CB: What was your senior season like at Colorado?
NS: My season was basically focused on the team's success. I did some good things but that didn't make me feel any better about only winning five games. I would've much rather had won 10 or 11 games and be in a bowl and rather be talking about that rather than talking about personal achievements.
CB: Do you believe that your lack of team success has made you a tougher player who's more prepared for adversity?
NS: I'm war-tested, war-hardened. I think a lot of times you got a guy that's on a winning team that say his status is based upon the success of his team. I just have never had that status based on my team so anything I've achieved or created has been in a tough environment because there's been a lot of negativity about coaches and those sort of things.
CB: Who is the best defensive player you've ever lined up against?
NS: I always think back to Brian Orakpo, and then last year was Von Miller. There's been several guys that are tough, I feel every week I'm up against a new challenge.
CB: What do you need to improve on?
NS: Everything I want to do I need to get better at. The things I think I do well is that I have good footwork and I move pretty well. The way that's going to translate is maybe my pass protection and hopefully that's a good translation into the NFL.
CB: If I'm an NFL GM, why should I select you in the first round?
NS: It would be a mistake not to, it really would. I think I'm going to be a good team guy. I'm going to be a solid dude for 15 years that will be your left tackle.
CB: 15 years?
NS: I'd love to extend my career as long as I can and if that's what the organization is looking for then I'm the guy.
Nate Solder is projected as a Top Three tackle in this class and should be selected in the first two rounds of April's draft.
