The ShowGirl (12:22 PM)
Alright, Antrel is here and ready for you!
Antrel Rolle (12:23 PM)
Hello everybody. Let's chat.
Matt (Miami, FLA)
Go Canes! Gettin your hair did right for the draft, huh Antrel? Did you do anything special?
Antrel Rolle (12:24 PM)
Nothing special for the draft, just getting cleaned up because I have an interview tonight, but I'll get it done again on Thursday before I go to New York just so it will be fresh and clean!
Nicholas Cole (Minnesota)
Have you cut your forty time down now that you cut your hair?
Antrel Rolle (12:25 PM)
Maybe, I don't have too much hair to begin with so, maybe a little bit.
charles (newnan, ga)
Whats up Antrel. I was wanting to wish you luck in the draft come saturday. I was just wondering, what is it like to know that come saturday night, your dream will come true and play in the NFL.
Antrel Rolle (12:26 PM)
I think it's going to be the greatest feeling I've ever experienced in my life. Once that is over with, I'll have to have a new set of goals and new dreams to fufill. I've been waiting for this!
What teams have you vistied? Who have shown the most interest?
Antrel Rolle (12:27 PM)
Neither team has shown more interst than others, but the ones I've visited were Miami, Carolina San Francisco, Detroit and Washington.
How did your visit with Washington go? As a U alum myself I've followed you throughout and think you'd be a great fit for the agressive defense Gregg Williams puts on the field. Thoughts on reuniting with Sean Taylor?
Antrel Rolle (12:30 PM)
The visit went great, I met with the coaches, and the D-back coach and many others. --
Antrel Rolle (12:33 PM)
As far as reuniting with Sean, I would love to. Sean and I have great chemistry and that would be good -- that would mean double trouble back there in the secondary!
How did you like your visit to detroit and do you think there is a chance of you playing here?
Antrel Rolle (12:34 PM)
That was another great visit, the coaches were cool. The players there get along great, the atmosphere there reminds me a lot of the players in Miami. Plus, that is probably the nicests facility I've ever been around.
jumbo (grand forks, nd)
Do you think you'll be drafted higher than where you would have been last year? And are you glad you stayed at the U for your senior season?
Antrel Rolle (12:35 PM)
Absolutely, I've accomplished a lot in my senior year -- in addition to graduation. I think this year really helped me and I am much better off than if I had left last year.
Antrel, a lot of mock drafts have you going at the 6th pick to the Titans how would you feel about playing for that squad in Nashville.
Antrel Rolle (12:37 PM)
I didn't visit there, but I was there when we played Tennessee. I mean, I will be happy to play anywhere. I can't wait, I just want to take my game to the maximum potential.
Josh (Naples, Fla)
Antrel, is it true that your parents are your agents? If so you and your parents are genius!! Good Luck (Pick six) Rolle
Antrel Rolle (12:39 PM)
No, that's not true. My parents are very involved though.
Geoff (Ft. Lauderdale)
Huge Canes Fan, Does a part of you want to stay home and play for the Dolphins?
Antrel Rolle (12:40 PM)
I don't really want to answer that one right now.
Dom (Bay Area)
Have you ever met anyone that DIDN'T think you were Samari's relative?
Antrel Rolle (12:40 PM)
Honestly -- no.
zeke columbia, mo
what seperates you from pac man?
Antrel Rolle (12:42 PM)
My total game -- my game vs. his game. The type of player I am and the type of player he is. Our level of competition -- I think the film speaks for itself.
bernardo garcia (miami)
hey antrel big fan go c-a-n-e-s #1 .my question is what do you think is a weakness in your game ?
Antrel Rolle (12:43 PM)
I'd really like to improve on my off-man coverage because I haven't been exposed to too much of that at the University of Miami.
Game clearwater Florida
Im A FSU fan and i dont like the U too much, but in the game last year you played more of a free safety and closer to the ball -- would you want to become a safety in the league?
Antrel Rolle (12:44 PM)
No, I'd rather stay on the corner. I was playing a slot position on the third receiver in that game. I prefer the corner.
WHO IS YOUR N.F.L IDOL AND WHY??
Antrel Rolle (12:45 PM)
My brother and my father are my idols, I've never really looked up to anyone in the NFL.
mike (new york city)
hi Antrel, what is the highest pick you think you should go? the lowest?
Antrel Rolle (12:47 PM)
I'd say between -- I mean, the draft is a crazy thing, but as far as what I can bring to a team -- I feel I should be the first pick. ... now, do I actually think that is going to happen? Not sure -- anything can happen. The lowest I should possibly go is 6th.
Corey (Philly home of the NFC CHAMPS)
What will be the first thing you buy after you sign your first NFL contract? P.S. I'm a little short on dough. You think after you buy whatever you want that you can wire me some money?Thanks!
Antrel Rolle (12:47 PM)
Probably a comfortable place to live in the state I am drafted to.
Pope Ratzinger has just been elected pope. He is thought of as a conservative. Do you feel you are a conservative CB or are you going to change the position, if so how?
The ShowGirl (12:59 PM)
Great segue, Claudius -- I apologize, we'll have to use that news update to fill the time for a minute. We lost Antrel. Hang tight. Thanks for your patience.
The ShowGirl (1:01 PM)
Sorry folks, we have lost our connection with Antrel. We'll pass along his thanks for your great questions! Enjoy the NFL draft this weekend!
