Who is the toughest player you’ve competed against during your collegiate career?
My former teammates that played left and right guard. Rishard Cook and/or Malique Johnson. I mean those guys used to come to practice everyday and fire off the line of scrimmage and I wasn’t slowing down either. So everyday was a dog fight which made Saturdays a bit easier.

Forty-years from now, what do you want to be remembered for?

In 15 words or less, why should an NFL team invest in you?
