CS: Is it overwhelming at all to have so many NFL scouts in one place, knowing that one bad play or one wrong answer to a question could cost you come April?

Arenas: It’s not overwhelming, scouts are like fans; we’re used to having them around. I know how to zone them out and do what I have to do to be successful on the field.

CS: What NFL teams have you met with since you arrived in Mobile?

Arenas: I’ve met with a number of teams already; I’d rather not say which ones.

CS: What aspect of your game are you trying to improve on this week?

Arenas: I’m trying to get better every day. I’m going to keep doing what I do and go hard every play.

CS: You’ve been on the practice field for three days now, who’s been the best wide receiver that you lined up against?

Arenas: All of them, all of those guys can play. You have to bring your “A” game every time you line up against them.
