Senior Bowl Q&A: W. Virginia QB Jarrett Brown

While Tim Tebow grabbed most of the media attention Monday at the Senior Bowl, but Jarrett Brown had the best day among the South squad quarterbacks. He talked about his approach to the all-star week of practice, interviewing with NFL teams, and who has impressed him.

Q: It looked like you had a pretty good day out there today (Monday). Did you feel like you opened some eyes out there?

A:
I'm not sure if I opened some eyes or not. I'm really not sure. I just went out there and played full speed. That's the way I was taught football. If you're going to mess, mess up full speed. That's all I wanted to do, just go out there and play ball and learn at the same time. When we go watch film (on Tuesday), I'm sure I'll pick up on that and I'll learn from my mistakes.

Q: What was the hardest thing for you to get used to?

A:
You can't tell a lot from the first day, but the hardest thing for me to do was just process all of that into my head really fast. I thought I did a good job at it.

Q: Has Tim Tebow been helping you at all?

A:
I think he's in the same boat. He's swimming too. It's like that.

Q: Who have you been impressed with, both on the offensive side of the ball and the guys coming at you defensively in practice?

A:
I think all of these guys are impressive. Honestly. I thought that when I walked off that field. I was like, these are the top guys in college football and it showed. They're doing the same things I am.

Q: Have anybody's skills surprised you, where you came with a preconceived idea about a guy and found out he is faster or bigger than you thought?

A:
Ben Tate (Auburn running back). He runs pretty well. When I seen him take off up the sideline, he was moving.

Q: What are you looking to prove to the coaches and scouts here?

A:
There are a lot of questions out there about me – not my skill set and not my ability, but can I process and pick up plays and all those little things. I just want to answer that question.

Q: You said that was one of the biggest challenges, but it has to be tough coming in and trying to learn an offense and go out and perform in it a week later.

A:
That's the way you've got to approach it. I don't want to think I'm going to mess up. I just want to go out there and play full speed. We're going to mess up because it's the first day.

Q: Any interviews Sunday night with teams?

A:
A few teams. Green Bay. The Falcons. Actually I have one (Monday night) with Carolina.

Q: Did you get a sense of what they're looking for when they're talking to you?

A:
Just to get a little sense of who I am as a person.

Q: Are they having you draw up plays?

A:
No. Not right now. I think we'll get into that a little more around (NFL Scouting Combine) time when they have a little more time to sit down with you. The interviews aren't that long. They're like five minutes long, just asking you a couple of questions.
