Press Conference: Justin "J.T." Tryon

J.T. Tryon answered questions for the media after being select by the Redskins in the 4th round.

On if he knew he would get drafted by the Redskins:

"I had no idea. I had no idea until they told me, ‘Hey this is the Redskins, do you want to be a Redskin?' I said, ‘Heck yeah I do. Let's go'."

On how his height will affect him in the NFL:

"Actually, I prefer the taller receivers because I like their bodies. I can control their bodies a little bit more. The little receivers are more shifty for me. They are a little bit faster than the taller receivers. I love to compete so I am looking forward to guarding the TO's (Terrell Owens, WR, Dallas) and the Chad Johnson's (WR, Cincinnati). I'm looking forward to that."

On what he brings as a cornerback:

"I bring wisdom to the game. I bring heart to the game. I was made for this. I was made to play football. I was made to be in this game. I bring a love to the game and passion to the game. This is what I do day in and day out. This is all I can do [bring a passion to the game]."

On what he brings as a kick returner:

"I bring explosion. My first five steps are explosion. I am going to get you to the 50, anytime I catch the ball at least I'm going to get you to the 50. I'm a kick returner by heart."
