That almost makes him interesting.
Would like Mercilus or Curry for us in the 2nd if we could trade up
In his last two seasons at Marshall, defensive end Vinny Curry racked up 23 sacks.
But, he isn't a one-dimensional player, also making a lot of tackles.
He's 6 foot 4, 263 pounds, and he looks like the sort of player who could fit in any scheme.
Here's a conversation with Curry:
Q: How has this experience been so far?
A: I'm just trying to soak up as much as I can up. Everyone out here is good, so I'm just trying to get better. It feels good just to be out here, among the nation's best.
Q: Where are you going to train before the Combine and what will be your focus?
A: I'm going to train at CES Sports, in Atlanta. My focus is to be a top performer, in all categories, at my position. And just to work hard. Just solidify myself as a solid draft pick.
Q: Does this experience in Mobile make you believe you're ready for the next step in your career?
A: Everything feels good. It gives you a lot of confidence.
Q: What have you thought about the experience of working with NFL coaches?
A: I love it. I love getting coached, and I like learning new things. I'm just very excited.
Q: And in interviews, what do you highlight about yourself?
A: I'm a guy who loves the game. A guy who plays with phenomenal passion, and a guy who makes plays.
Q: Projections have you as a first- to third-round pick. What's your mindset?
A: My goal is just to be one of the top d-ends taken in the draft.
Q: Did you graduate from Marshall?
A: I graduated this past December. General studies. I had two minor degrees in criminal justice and sociology.
Q: So you're obviously ready, if the NFL thing doesn't work out?
A: If the NFL thing doesn't work, I'm going to try and be a wrestler.
Q: You've been very productive, both in terms of sacks and tackles. Why is that?
A: Teams schemed for me, so I tried to elevate my game with seven forced fumbles. I'm just a hard worker, and I play with as much passion as I can. I love playing at Marshall. I love being a part of the Herd. I wanted to bring them a conference championship. But at least we brought them a bowl championship.
Q: Who is your agent?
A: Kevin Conner at Universal Sports.
Watching Curry this week and I understand why so many people are
excited about him. I wonder if he would last to the 2nd round
Seeing Curry on the field and reading that interview, he surely embodies "playing like a Jet"... Bart Scott would love to have a second wrestling fan on the team aswell...:yes:
Both of these guy's are projected to go anywhere from mid 1st to late second.
I think people are going to be shocked this year at what the jets do.
but i like Curry. Great head on his shoulders and plays extremely hard.
