Q: First impression of being in a New York Giants' practice?
Fast tempo - that is one of the first things that I noticed. The tempo is a lot different than it was in college. There is big emphasis on finishing. So I think that is something that I have to definitely go to work on in the second practice.
Q: Was it intimidating at all?
A: Not really intimidating because everybody here is on the same level right now. We are all trying to come here and get better and learn the whole system. So I think really the big focus for me and lot of other guys is really understanding the system, learning what it takes to be a New York Giant, doing all of the things right and play hard.
Q: What is it like coming in here? They hand you the helmet and all of a sudden you are not a college guy any more. It has to be a little intimidating or at least a little bit different.
A: It is surreal. The whole idea of being a New York Giant hasn't really hit me yet. I'm in a great position. This is great organization. It has been for quite some time. I'm just going to come in here and try to do whatever it takes to play somehow and do whatever they ask me to. So I'm all ears for whatever they have for me.
Q: Your former coach has a connection with this organization. Did he tell you what it would be like coming here?
A: He let me know, he said, "Man this is one of the prestigious organizations. It is one of the founders of NFL football and it has been for a while." So really he just told me to come in here and just work hard and I'll be ready to do whatever they tell me to do and try to come out here and work.
Q: It looks like you had a knack for getting after the passer in college. Do you think it is going to the same - college and NFL?
A: I don't know. I'm not all about predictions. Wherever they want me to play, I'll play. Whatever they want me to do is what I'm going to do.
