Here is our Q&A with Durkin on Anzalone:
Q: What makes Alex a good prospect at this stage of his career?
A: He’s got a unique set of skills for the size he is and how well he moves. He came to camp here and it’s very impressive for a guy his size. He moves effortlessly. He changes direction and he bends well. That’s a unique thing. I don’t know where his ceiling is. He’s going to come in and we’ll probably start him out at Mike and Will and he might play Sam and Buck and everything in between. His versatility is going to be huge for us. You don’t find many guys like that. When you look across the country, there are not many guys that size who can move that well.
Q: How can enrolling early help him individually?
A: The biggest thing obviously is to learn the defense. Physically it will help to be in our weight program and running and nutrition and all those things. But for Alex, he’s really developed. He’s got a mature body physically. Learning our defense will get him on the field faster than anything. I think it’s invaluable for him to come in early, go through the 15 practices in the spring, and then all of a sudden you’re like a veteran when camp starts in August.
Q: He’s gotten a lot of exposure on the recruiting trail, so how fortunate were you to get him?
A: His path to get here wasn’t the most common one. He bounced around a little bit. He visited here probably eight or nine times, probably more than anyone. All along we kept thinking we were going to get in but it never came out that way until the end. We are sure happy to have him.
Here is our Q&A with Robinson on Bostwick:
Q: What can you tell us about Jay-nard?
A: A tremendous player. I think Jay-nard is an exceptional player. He is really talented. He’s got a great, great family who is supportive of him and wants him to do well.
Q: What helped you land Jay-nard?
A: I tell you the one thing that was really a good deal for us is [defensive tackles coach] Bryant Young. Jay-nard sees himself in him. They’ve got the same characteristics; they’ve got the same traits. He sees himself as Bryant Young. He’s not so talkative. They kind of whoop people and move on. That’s their talking.
Q: What can you say about him from a physical standpoint?
A: He will be a three-technique guy. He is a guy who hopefully can come in and did what Sharrif [Floyd] did. Sharrif was pretty good and I don’t know if he can replace Sharrif, but he is a guy who is definitely a candidate to come in and do that. He’s strong. He’s 295 right now and 6-3. He’s got initial quickness. He’s got explosion. He’s got finish. He’s got the different things that it takes to be successful inside. He just needs to come in and get ready to bang.
