NFL prospect Vinny Curry will be here in a few minutes to take your questions!

Vinny's here!

steve (nyc)

best game you played at marshall?

Vinny Curry
  (3:45 PM)

Probably this year against Rice. It was the day after I buried my mother.

kyle (fl)

what will you be doing during draft weekend?

Vinny Curry
  (3:45 PM)

Yeah, I will be watching live from the high school I went to in the town I grew up in.

James (IL)

Cam or Megatron for the cover?

Vinny Curry
  (3:46 PM)

I'm going to go with Calvin Johnson.

Jeff (KCMO)

Hey Vin, who are your 3 favorite pass rushers in the NFL right now? And have you created a sack dance yet?

Vinny Curry
  (3:47 PM)

I would say Jason Pierre-Paul, Jared Allen and Terrell Suggs.

Vinny Curry
  (3:47 PM)

Yeah, I'm working on a sack dance.

Danny C (NY)

How would you feel playing for Rex Ryan and his system?

Vinny Curry
  (3:47 PM)

I would love it. It would be a blessing. Playing for the home team, I'm from New Jersey. It would be magical.

Billy (Marshall University)

Coming from a smaller school like Marshall, in my opinion, is the only reason you may drop into the second round. If you fall to 2-3 round, will that motivate you to prove everyone that you should have been a first round pick and that you can play with guys who come from "big name, AQ schools"?

Vinny Curry
  (3:48 PM)

Oh yeah, absolutely. I will use that as motivation. Anywhere I can represent the school. I try to be the best player on the field. At the Senior Bowl, I tried to do that. It's not just a university, but a whole community.

Brad (Gadsden,Alabama)

Vinny, Do you have pre-game rituals?

Vinny Curry
  (3:48 PM)

Oh yes, I do.

Mart (Huntington)

Hey VinnyWhat has been the most fun part of the process of turning pro? What has been the most difficult? Go Herd!!!

Vinny Curry
  (3:49 PM)

The most fun has been going on these team visits and meet the coaches. Know that everything you've worked for your whole life is there and seeing your hard work pay off.

Vinny Curry
  (3:50 PM)

The most difficult part has been when people trying to down play the conference I played at and the university I played for. At the end of the day, I worked just as hard as anyone else in the draft. My school has more tradition than some of the so called big schools.

Phillip (a stadium near you)

Vinny,How did the Marshall program prepare you for the next step into the NFL?

Vinny Curry
  (3:51 PM)

It prepared me in a lot of ways. Being a freshman coming into the university and paying my freshman dues. Some of the coaching staff I have was being formed. It's all prepared me for this next step.

James (IL)

How about playing for the Bears?

Vinny Curry
  (3:52 PM)

Oh, man, that would be great! Just from a standpoint that they're in the top 10 in defensive categories every year. Playing with a future hall of fame DEs in Peppers would be great.

Sal (ATL)

How does the pre-draft process compare to the college recruiting process? Thanks.

Vinny Curry
  (3:52 PM)

It's almost about the same thing. The only difference is you don't choose where you go, they choose you.

Jeff (FL)

what will it be like to see yourself in Madden?

Vinny Curry
  (3:53 PM)

I might freak out the first time I see it.

Chris (NJ)

what was the biggest hit you had in a game?

Vinny Curry
  (3:53 PM)

Down at the goal line against Southern Miss. I hit a guy for a safety. That was one of the biggest hits.

James (IL)

What makes you a good defensive end?

Vinny Curry
  (3:54 PM)

The ability to have great attack skills. And my get-all to get to the passer. And the ability to make plays, rush the passer, stripping the ball, getting to the edge.

John (Huntington)

Vinny, what is the very first thing you are buying after you get the deal done with the team that drafts you?

Vinny Curry
  (3:55 PM)

I probably just pay my loans off from when I had to pay my loans for my first year of school.

Ry (OH)

Vinny, if you weren't on the verge of playing in the NFL, what other sport do you think you would have the most success in?

Vinny Curry
  (3:56 PM)

I would have been trying to become a professional wrestler.

Vinny Curry
