On how he feels to be drafted by the Redskins:

“I am extremely excited, I can’t put it into words right now. I am ready to go and play football again.”

 

On what he brings to the Redskins:

“I am a speed linebacker. I love football and I love to hit people. I feel I bring speed, a team attitude and the willingness to do anything for the team.”

 

On which linebacker position he is most comfortable playing:

“I played weakside this year, so I feel best at that position. I know that I have some learning to do with only playing the position one year, but that is something I am ready to do. I am eager to get on the football field.”

 

On why he was moved from running back to linebacker before his senior season:

“It was a mutual [decision] with the new coaches who were coming in. I felt that I could help the team more by playing defense than playing in a crowded backfield that was playing by committee. I made the switch to better our football team.”

 

On his whether he has recovered from a foot injury:

“I had one earlier in the spring, but I am over that. Right now I am healthy and I am good to go.”

 

On his transition to linebacker:

“I felt that when I first moved over there, I picked it up pretty good. With my natural instincts for the position and being a football player, I picked it up pretty good. Learning the terminology of Coach Pelini’s defense and learning where I had to be, once I learned most of that then I was able to just let my athletic ability take over to fly around and make plays.”

 

On injuries he suffered in college:

“In 2006 I hurt [my foot]. I did not have any problems with it in 2007. In 2007 I had a scope of my knee where I hurt it, but I was pretty healthy then, I just did not play at all with the coaches that we had. This past spring, I just hurt my foot, but it is full go now.”

 

On whether he thought he would ever be drafted as a linebacker:

“I had always been a running back, and I had always loved playing running back. When I made the switch I didn’t know how it was going to turn out, but I am grateful for it and I thank God for it.”

 

On whether he would consider moving back to running back:

“I am a team guy. Whatever they want me to do, I will do. I love playing linebacker now so that is where I wish to play, but if that is something that they came to me with I would be more than willing to do it.”

 

 

On where he has been working out in preparation for the NFL:

“I have been working out here in Nebraska. I graduate here in two weeks, so I have been here finishing school and working out.”
