Quinton is here!
How do you think you benefitted from staying at UNC another year?
I think I matured for more reasons off the field. And I matured at a different position.
What was your combine experience like?
It was very long and intriguing. I learned a lot business wise and how to conduct the NFL in a business way.
What's the worst part about the draft process?
Not knowing where you're going. What team you're going to play for.
Do you read anything about where you might go? Does anyone you know try to tell you?
No, I definitely haven't been reading. I just compete for the best position possible.
How big is the basketball team on campus?
They're big when it's their season. But we're all equal on campus.
Do you prefer a 4-3 or 3-4 system?
Either or. I have played both during my college career. I'm prepared for both.
what's it feel like when you're getting a good hit on the QB?
It's an unbelievable feeling. I get numb and don't really know until it's time for the next play to know how I really felt.
What do you think you'd bring to a team that takes you in the draft?
who do you pattern your game after and who have you looked up to in the NFL?
No, I didn't pattern my game after anyone. I just play the game of football. Growing up I really wasn't a big football fan.
What teams have you interviewed with?
There haven't been too many. I've talked to about 6 or 8. Miami, Carolina, Tampa Bay, St. Louis is where I've travelled.
What are you draft day plans?
I will be in New York at the draft, following the intinerary for everybody that they have.
Who can eat more, you or Marvin Austin?
I'm going to go with the big fellow. If it was an eating contest, he would beat me if we were in school. Not now though, he's more of a sushi guy.
What position would you like to play if you played offense?
What is your favorite moment you had at UNC?
My freshman year, we beat Notre Dame at home. Unbelievable feeling.
What would you rather do: record a sack or recover a fumble?
Record a sack.
Did you ever have a chance play pickup with the hoops team on campus?
What's the best part of playing at UNC?
The experience you get as a student. You can compete at one of the highest levels in the collegiate level and being around great people all of the time.
Were you able to get many basketball games?
I went to the Kentucky game, but I usually catch the games on TV due to the fact that they stand up all of the time in the arena.
Do you pay attention to what anyone's saying about wher eyou're going to go in the draft?
No, not at all. Just excited about being a part of the process and excited about getting the draft here.
Rather play in a 3-4 or 4-3? Any teams talk about you possibly playing 3-4 OLB? And any visits or talks with the Cowboys would guess you wouldn't mind wearing the Star.
Miami, they run 3-4. That's about it. Oh, and the Jets. Everyone else is a 4-3 that I've talked to.
How would you feel playing for the Jets and in Rex's system?
It definitely would be great. It would be a great opportunity with his status and knows the game well. He has the defensive mindset to put me in a place to be successful.
Where Do you rank yourself out of this year's defensive ends in the draft, and Which team do you think you'll get drafted by?
I don't compare myself to the other defensive ends. I'm just focused on being great in the NFL.
travel like in the NFL?
I think it will be fun. You get to see a different city 7-8 times during the year. It will definitely be fun.
What team would you most want to be drafted by?
No, I don't have a preference at all.
Thanks to all of my fans. I appreciate your support. Go Heels!
