TFY: After such a good performance during Blue-Gray week how do you feel your first practice went today?
Jefferson: The competition went to a whole other level today. I was a little rusty at first but once I got loose I was alright. They got me playing free safety and corner here, up to now I just played safety. I was just a little sluggish at first.
TFY: What do you like better free safety or cornerback?
Jefferson: Makes no difference.
TFY: Do you think you can handle the mental skills of the free safety?
Jefferson: Yeah, I can handle it, I played it my freshman year at college and then I moved to corner it would work out best for my team, but you know whatever it takes.
TFY: They are doing a lot of pro techniques here as opposed to the Blue/Gray game where there was a lot of back man-off coverage. How's the difference?
Jefferson: We play press coverage in practice but we can't press in the games.
TFY: What do you like better; press or man-off?
Jefferson:I like press. A little bit more physical.
TFY: Tell me about your college teammate Robert Sippio, I've seen him several times, do you think he made a good decision leaving for the draft and why do you think he made that decision?
Jefferson:I thought he made the best decision because you know, going to the NFL is every football player's dream, it's a once in a lifetime opportunity. I had a good career at Western Kentucky but our whole secondary had NFL potential and everybody graduated so he just went on and left too.
TFY: Are you going to workout at the Combine and what are you looking for numbers as far as benching, vertical leap and 40 time?
Jefferson: Trying to bench 225 at least 14-15 times, that what they are expecting, but I would like to do above average. In the 40 I want to try to get a 4.4 at least.
TFY: What did you time last Spring?
Jefferson: 4.3, it was converted to a 4.4 because of the surface; and my vertical jump I got to get up to 38-40 inches.
