Q: Do you feel like youíve made that spot your own next to Landon (Collins)?
A: I just do what Iím asked to do, really. Obviously I want to play, thatís what every player wants to do. Thatís what I came here for. First round, undrafted, it doesnít matter. I came here to play. Thatís what Iím doing. Week in and week out, Iím just trying to put my best foot forward and help my team win.
Q: What the biggest difference in your play from when you first got out there to now?
A: Confidence level. Confidence. Your first game, itís different than preseason and what not. Youíve kind of seen how the real game works. A lot of bullets flying. Now, itís just being able to see and react rather than think about should I do this or that. You just play faster.
Q: How much does having Landon out there help you?
A: Itís very helpful. He has a lot of plays under his belt. Heís only a second year player and has a lot of starts already. Just being able to study together and be on the same page helps a lot.
Q: How do you look at the way youíve been playing?
A: I think Iíve been playing well. Thereís obviously room for improvement. No one is perfect. I just want to keep improving on the little things that guys might not see because theyíre not detailing the film. Just little things I want to improve on.
Q: Seems like you play a lot in the deep part of the field. How much of that have you done before hand?
A: I did a lot of it in college but I also played in the box. Being back there just allows you to see the bigger picture and everything thatís going on. It takes a disciplined person to be back there. Obviously, youíre the last line of defense. You have to know whatís going on.
Q: Are you surprised that youíve started five games in your rookie year?
A: Itís exciting. Iím blessed to be able to have this opportunity. I just want to keep improving going forward. Itís a blessing to be a starter in the NFL.
Q: How have you progressed from a rough start, to becoming a starter?
A: A penalty doesnít define a player or a season. I just play each game like itís my last game. Just let the chips fall as they may.
