Q: What position are you best suited for?
A: I would say tackle because of my size and footwork. But I displayed that I could play both positions equally well.
Q: Did you have a feeling what round you might be drafted?
A: I thought the first round or the second, but sometimes that's not how it goes. Now I can use this as motivation, use it as fuel for the fire to prove to people what kind of player I am.
Q: Why do you think you dropped?
A: It probably had a lot to do with my workouts, that's what I was hearing. If you looked at me on film and saw the kind of player I am, then that has to be the reason why.
Q: What were you hearing?
A: At the combine, I didn't do much of anything. All I did was the offensive line drills. Some people said some bad comments about me and said I didn't do what I should have. I guess that's the way it goes.
Q: What did Kim Helton tell you?
A: He didn't tell me where I would start out and said he was glad to have me. He told me to be ready and be in shape and he'll make me into a Pro Bowl player.
Q: Why do you prefer tackle over guard?
A: Because it's a challenge and I love a challenge. It's just you, man to man and who is the best man out there. It opened my eyes as to how much fun it is and how much I enjoy playing the position.
