On his reaction to being picked by the Bills:
I am happy. One I get to play left tackle and two Buffalo is one of my favorite teams. I am just happy I get to play football. I know where I am playing at now. It is a big relief.
On why he is excited to play for the Bills:
The coach. I like the coaching staff. I like the offensive line coach (Joe D’Alessandris). I like the way he coaches, so (Buffalo) was definitely a big favorite of mine.
On having to wait until the second round to be drafted:
I wish I could have got off early but I am just happy to be picked right now. It is a big honor.
On his development as a left tackle:
I would just say that I came out to a slower start. And then I got better as the season went on as I got more comfortable out there. I still do not think I have played my best game out there.
On if he was afraid of being drafted by a team who did not view him as a tackle:
I think with my athletic ability it would be hard for a team to pass that up.
On how pleased he is that the Bills view him as a left tackle:
I am extremely pleased and ready to start just focusing on football again. Get off of this process that is finally over. I am excited about it.
On if the Bills told him during meetings that they viewed him as a left tackle:
They thought I could play tackle but I am just going to go in there and try out the vibe. I’ll help out at whatever position they need me to play, honestly.
On the Bills having a need at left tackle:
It is (exciting). That is the whole point. I am excited to go out there and play. I am ready for it.
On if he was at home:
Yeah, I am at home.
On if he felt that he might be drafted earlier:
Yeah, I did actually. But things happen for a reason. I am just happy to be with the Bills.
On if it was a big disappointment he was not drafted earlier:
I would not say that. I am pretty happy with the team I got picked by.
On his reaction when the phone rang and it was the Bills:
Extremely happy. I talked to Chan (Gailey) first. I talked to Buddy (Nix). Very happy. Probably the happiest moment of my life.
On what he brings to the table aside from his size:
Beside my size: versatility, quickness, strength power, everything the whole nine.
