(on getting drafted by the Texans) “It was crazy, man. I saw the area code and all the while my family started going crazy. It’s a feeling I can’t really explain.”
(on if he knew the Texans were interested) “I had a good feeling they were one of the top teams that was interested in me from the visit not too long ago. They seemed pretty interested in me. I’m just blessed to have this opportunity.”
(on visiting the Texans) “It was crazy. I love the city. I’ve been loving the city of Houston. This is always the team that I wanted to play for, but it’s just crazy that they picked me.”
(on why he wanted to play for the Texans) “Of course, they got J.J. Watt. J.J. Watt is one of the most explosive players on defense. Then you got Jadeveon Clowney, so I would love to play on a defense like that with Vince WIlfork in the middle, so it’s crazy.”
(on his weight at the pro day) “At my pro day, I was at like 222 (pounds).”
(on his natural position and where he fits in) “I see myself more of a WILL-type linebacker. But I also play many other positions, so whatever Houston wants to play me at.”
(on playing special teams) “Special teams, I did all of my years at South Florida. Special teams is where I get my foot into the door, so I’m ready.”
