The sixth-year pro took time to answer questions from the media at his locker after practice:
Q: What are your impressions of the Packers' offensive line?
AK: You are a pretty good player to be on this offensive line. I mean this is one of the top offensive lines (in the league) in the past few years. … I know I'm trying to fill the shoes of somebody who is a pretty good player, but with a little work and getting used to the position I can be a pretty good player myself.
Q: What are you trying to show the coaches in this mini-camp?
AK: First of all, I just want to show them that I can be healthy. Over the last few years, I haven't had the best of luck with my health. I want to go out there and show them I can stay on the field. I've always been a hard worker. I'm going to go out there each day and push myself.
Q: What do you have to do to be formidable among the linemen?
AK: I'm excited about it. I want to find a niche for myself. I want to be looked at like all those guys are looked at. I'd like to come in here each year and have my spot. I want to make a place for myself.
Q: Is your biggest strength your quickness?
AK: Some people say I'm a pretty good pass blocker and I'm athletic. I don't know how much that stands true anymore. I've had a number of things go wrong (smiles). But I feel like I'm getting back there. I feel pretty good out there. I'm not taking all the reps that I can possibly take, but I've taken a number of them. I haven't had any setbacks or anything, so I'm excited about that.
Q: How would you describe your style?
AK: I can't describe it because I'm not playing the same position anymore. It's totally different. It's a learning process. Hopefully I can continue picking up things and good things will come."
