On what his best attributes are as a player:
" [I would say] versatility and being able to catch the ball out of the backfield; being able to pick out mismatches amongst the defense and not being limited to just one [skill], I believe is my greatest strength."
On if the Dolphins indicated where he would it into the offense:
"At the combine, I met with the tight end coach [Dan Campbell] and he said he wanted me to play the tight end position. As far as it being an H-Back or an inline tight end, I am not sure. Like I said, I am willing to do whatever it takes."
On the Dolphins mentioning to him he might play fullback:
"I did hear that as I just got off the [phone with the some of the staff]. I am going in labeled as a fullback, but at the combine I met with the tight ends coach [Dan Campbell]. So I guess I will switch between the two. Like I said, I am not real sure what I will do, but I am open to anything."
On how much in-line blocking he did at Tulsa:
"I did it more as my career progressed. I did more of it last year, [but] I didn't do a lot of it. It was more of game plan [specific situation]. Some games that was all I lined up at was tight end."
On his 40 yard dash time:
"At the combine I think I ran a 4.7 [forty-yard dash] and at my pro day I was rated anywhere from a 4.58 to 4.64."
On assessing himself as a blocker:
"I think I do a good job. With me being tall, I struggle with sustaining blocks at times and keeping my feet down on contact; all things that are fixable, but will take some hard work."
On if blocking is the biggest area he needs to improve upon:
"Yes sir; that's the main thing."
On if the Dolphins expressed interest in him before, work him out personally, or bring him down to Miami for a visit at all:
"No sir, I didn't visit outside the combine. The combine would be the only time that I got a chance to meet with their whole staff."
On what does the opportunity to take his career to the next level in the NFL mean to him:
"It means the world. Since I was six years old I was always telling my mom that I wanted to be a professional football player and for it to actually happen (you know) leading up to this point you realize that it could happen but once you get that phone call, you get a whole different feeling and I'm just like kind of speechless right now."
On how would he rate his pass catching skills:
"I would rate it, on a scale from 1-10 I'd say 10. I believe that's probably the thing I do best but at the same time you can always get better. But (you know) I'm just one of those confident guys, I believe that confidence is better. When you can catch the ball you can catch it, but if you feel that you can't then (you know) you'll have problems, so, I believe I can catch the ball really good."
