What Can the Prince Do For Your Team?

Does your favorite team's secondary need to get younger and more talented? If the answer is yes, former Nebraska cornerback Prince Amukamara could make an immediate impact. Find out what he can bring to your team as Charlie Bernstein sat down with this sure-fire first round pick.

Charlie Bernstein: How has the draft process been for you, working out and going to the Combine and such?

Prince Amukamara: It's an exciting experience. I feel like a fan, just being around all the best players at their positions here.

CB: Your speed has been questioned somewhat despite you being a state track champion in high school. How well do you believe you'll run in the 40?

PA: I believe I'll run mid or low 4.4's.

CB: Who is the best wide receiver that you've covered?

PA: I think it has to be Justin Blackmon, he got the best of me when we were playing. I think the other person would have to be Niles Paul, the receiver from Nebraska. I go up against him every day and we get the best of each other.

CB: What is the best attribute you bring to an NFL team?

PA: I definitely bring my physicality every day. I'm not afraid to tackle, I'm not afraid to put my nose in. Besides being physical, my mentality and perseverance. I'm willing to work and I'm willing to do the dirty work.

CB: What do you need to work on?

PA: I need to work on my technique, my back-pedal. That's what comes to mind right now, but I'm sure other experts can pick up more.

CB: Why should I pick you over Patrick Peterson?

PA: I haven't really seen much of Patrick Peterson, but I have seen him return kicks. All I know is that I'm willing to work and that I'm a very physical, athletic corner and I can play multiple positions whether it be outside or dime or nickel.

CB: What would you like to tell NFL teams that are considering you in the first round?

PA: There's no question thatI can line up against anyone. I can do the work.
