It's a class that fulfills all of our needs. We have a group of quality guys that are very physical and very athletic.

But if he can play, it doesn't matter what position he plays. We want him.

This is a great foundation. For three weeks we were running around and trying to gather up some people and the guys did a great job finding guys. A lot of that has to do with our connections.

Those teams all had exciting running backs. You didn't have to look to the quarterback. They had running backs who could make plays.

Everything starts with the offensive line. We found quality guys in that area, and that's why we took that many.

Until Warde mentioned there was history here, I didn't even think about it. I mean I could see it. But I'm not into this, 'Well, this person is black or white.' I hope it shows it doesn't matter about color. It's really about people.

This is going to be a special program, and this is the foundation. That is how we are looking at it. It's going to happen.

I'll be watching right up front. Won't everybody?

If they have effort, we can coach them up on the rest.
