Since this is Playbook Trending, we decided to ask him five questions (and no, we're not going to ask him about his height -- which is 5-foot-11).
1. What's on your iPod that you would embarrass you to tell people?
"I was always a fan of the Backstreet Boys and 'N Sync. I have a lot of their songs. They were really good groups. I never could sing. But I could dance. I wanted to dance like Usher."
2. When was the last time you cried at a movie?
"That's easy. 'The Vow,' just a few months ago. I had recently gotten married and my wife and I went to the movie. We were crying a lot because it was like our story. Truthfully, she was holding up better than I was."
3. What's the most nerdy thing you do?
"It would probably be watching 'Desperate Housewives' with my wife. We started watching it on Netflix in Season 1, and we are almost done. You know I'm watching it because of my wife, right?"
4. If you could go back in time and relive something, what would that be?
"I'd want to relive all the time I had with my dad. He died June 9, 2010. I would go back to all the times we hung out and played sports. I really miss him. I would relive every moment again."
5. What are you going to do with your first NFL check?
"I'm going to go back to Richmond, Va., and put a better tombstone at my dad's grave. We don't come from money, so that's what I'd do. I'd also buy the adjoining plot next to his for my mother when it's her time. I owe them both so much."
