Historically we do not draft safeties high. So many guys that stay that extra year bear out so much better.

I think he has the ability to play much better than he has been. This is another guy who has to understand that he's now moving up a class.

I haven't heard any concern from anybody. He's made a remarkable recovery for a guy that had the problems he did.

I don't think being too smart can ever hurt you. All you have to look at is what kind of competitor he is. This guy is one of the great competitors of all time.

Everybody likes ice cream. People like different flavors.

Vince had 30 wins and 2 losses.

Really? I think for a long time they probably didn't have a quarterback because they were a wishbone team.

I'm sure people have a place in mind for him. But I don't know what that is.

In my evaluation of the guy, I think he has really good mechanics and good velocity on the ball, which is a big thing when you play in a stadium that has a lot of wind like (the Jets) do. I think it was a good pick. I'd be really surprised if he doesn't end up being a pretty good player for them.
