“I feel great. It feels good to know that I will be in the city of New York.”

On competing with Kyle Wilson for the second cornerback position:

“I’m just trying to go out there and compete and do my job. I’m trying to go out there and plays and do what I do best and play football.”

On if he feels any extra pressure after the team traded Darrelle Revis:

“No, I’m not really focused on or worrying about that. He got traded. I’m just coming in to compete for a job, play football, and control what I can do.”

On if he knew the Jets were interested in him:

“Yeah, I had a good talk with the coaches when I went up there to visit. I felt very comfortable and strong about it and it finally happened.”

On if he heard the fan reaction at Radio City Music Hall:

“Yeah, it was great. I got a big uproar from everybody. It felt great.”

On if he expects to be compared to Revis:

I don’t know. I’m not really worried about comparisons or anything like that. I’m trying to go out there and compete for a job. (I’m going out there) in a new place, start from scratch, and get on the grind.

On how much man coverage he played at Alabama:

“That’s mostly what we did. That is mostly right up my alley. That’s what we (do). We played a lot of man and the Jets also do, so that fits in perfect.”




On if he was surprised the Jets selected him:

“I met with them at the combine and it seemed real relaxed in the fifteen minute meeting we had. It came not as a surprise, but any call (that I received) would have come as a surprise to me.  I’m just glad that they gave me a call and they gave me a chance. Now I am ready to go and get a win.”


On his role in Missouri’s defense and how he describes himself:

“We played in a 4-3 scheme. (It was a) one gap defense. The type of player I’d describe myself as is a Sheldon Richardson type guy. I want to come in and make a name for myself and just work hard and help bring wins to the team.”


On his versatility along the defensive line:

“I think I’m very versatile. Helping out the defense and contributing and stopping offenses is what I do. That’s the only thing I can say about that. Whatever position they want me to play, I’ll come in and learn it at the best of my abilities and give it 100%.”


On if he considers himself one of the top-four players in the draft:

“Yeah, I really do. Any guy should have confidence in his talent and his ability. I really do think I was one of the top guys in the draft and I’m just happy to come to the Jets.”


On if he has ever played in a 3-4 defense before:

“Yes, I have. We used both of them in Mizzou (Missouri) but, it was more of a 4-3 scheme. We did both, I played in 3-4 and 4-3.”


On what position he played in the 3-4:

“I played nose (tackle) the first game and I moved back and stood up for the rest (of the games).”
