Joshua Ezeudu, Cor’Dale Flott and Wan’Dale Robinson
April 30, 2022
Q. Josh, what was it like seeing your teammate drafted here today?
JOSH EZEUDU: Man, I love all my teammates. I love Marcus (McKethan). We're really close. I’m close really with everybody but I’m just very excited right now. I just can't wait to call him and scream with him on the phone together (laughs).
Q. What's the last 24 hours been like for you days?
WAN'DALE ROBINSON: Shoot, it's been surreal, still doesn't really feel real, I guess you could say. Even got on the flight this morning and I'm still like, I don't really believe it. Even walked in this building and then started to feel a little bit more real.
But I don't think it will be anything like that until we start to actually put on the pads and things like that and get going. It's been a blessing and I can't be thankful enough for it.
Q. What was your impression of this place, the facility, you got a chance to go look around, everything that surrounds it?
COR'DALE FLOTT: Yeah, it's actually a nice city. Me being from the South, I had never been to a big city like this, and the organization, coming in here with great coaches and being able to get along with everybody. I definitely feel comfortable here. So, I like it.
Q. Wan’Dale, Cor'Dale said yesterday that you were the hardest receiver to cover last year. What did you think when he said that, and what was he like as a corner?
WAN'DALE ROBINSON: He was a tough one, too. I say whenever I saw that I looked at my girl and I was like, he's tough, too. That's just props to each other. We’re just trying to make each other better out there and just competing, and now we're teammates and we are going to have to make each other better each and every day on the practice field.
Q. How much are you looking forward to going against each other in training camp?
WAN'DALE ROBINSON: Iron sharpens iron.
COR'DALE FLOTT: That's the best – perfect quote for that one.
Q. Josh, we read that essay you wrote. What do you want to do with this platform, for people with stutters?
JOSH EZEUDU: I just really want to show them that if you have a stutter or even if you have anything that might not be normal, you can still do whatever you want. If you would have asked me ten years ago if I would be here now, I would have told you no. And now, ten years from then, I'm here talking to all of you guys.
So I'm just trying to be a role model for all the kids who stutter. I know it can be hard, it can be very tough. But all you have to do is put your mind to anything you want to and then actually go and put in the work and then everything else will follow.
Q. You can even become President of the United States.
JOSH EZEUDU: Yes, if that's what God tells me to do, then I'll do it then.
Q. Have you talked to any other players? I know some players in the past have been through the same thing. Have you had an opportunity to speak to anybody who gave you advice?
JOSH EZEUDU: I haven't talked to anybody yet, but I'm sure that will come too. But I've also heard of a lot of stories that coaches will tell me about some guys that also had a stutter too.
Q. You were talking about how it's such a whirlwind, rookie minicamp is two weeks away, what do you do the next two weeks? Take it minute by minute?
WAN'DALE ROBINSON: Got to get to work. Getting drafted, that's only the start of it. The job is not finished and you haven't made it yet. Now it's just time to come in and prove it and come in each and every day and just prove how we're here to help the team win.
COR'DALE FLOTT: Right.
Q. How long are you guys in town now?
COR'DALE FLOTT: Just for today.
WAN'DALE ROBINSON: 24 hours. We'll be out tomorrow.
Q. Have you talked to Mike Kafka, the offensive coordinator, about what he sees for you?
WAN'DALE ROBINSON: We have not gotten into the details of everything, but obviously we know the versatility and just me coming in, I'm going to do everything that I can to help our team win and just help the offense in whatever way I can.
Q. People don't like to compare all the time, we do, but he coached a pretty dynamic smaller receiver in Kansas City.
WAN'DALE ROBINSON: Yeah, there are guys who compare, but at the end of the day I want to be my own guy. I don't want to be anybody else. I like to take bits and pieces of people's games and apply them to mine but I just want to come in and be myself and help us win.
Q. Are you taking some from the smaller receivers?
WAN'DALE ROBINSON: You have to take some from everybody. I feel like receivers come in all different shapes and sizes, so being able to take something from all those guys just can help you be a better receiver all around whether they are big or small.
Q. Cor'Dale, what's with the chain?
COR'DALE FLOTT: Oh, this is a nickname. This is what they called me back (inaudible). If I say Flott out loud, sometimes from a distance, you might not hear me or understand, but sometimes some people come up and call me Flock just for reference if they don't know my name really, so that's one of the reasons I got this chain. And also, I didn't want my last name to be right here.
COR'DALE FLOTT: Flock, yeah.
