TFY Draft Preview: How do you feel your practices have gone so far this week?
Larry Tripplett: I'm still getting in the groove of football. I've been so busy running these 40's, I'm getting in my stance like I'm running a 40, I need to get back to my football stance.
TFY: Are you running 40's just to get into shape or to get the 40 time down for workout?
Larry Tripplett: Just trying to get ready for that Combine.
TFY: Your quickness and explosion are obvious, are you doing a lot of weight lifting to try to get stronger in your upper body.

TFY: Characterize your senior year, where you happy with it?

TFY: What teams do you think have shown the most interest in you?
Larry Tripplett: Right now Tampa Bay.

TFY: What about Jerramy Stevens, do you think he made the right choice of coming out?
Larry Tripplett: That is the best thing he could have did, he is a man-child, he is ready to play the next level.
TFY: Even though he missed half the season with injury?
Larry Tripplett: He is ready to play the next level.
