Yesterday, Seattle Seahawks 1st Round Draft Pick Bruce Irvin finished his first practice as an NFL player. Here is what he had to say following the event.
Quotes from the Seattle Post Inteligencer.
It felt good. I’m starting a new chapter of my life. It’s different than college, but I think I did pretty good. I think defense overall we had a pretty good day as far as it being the first day of us all working together.
Just coming in and working hard and doing the best I can. I’m not going to come in and try to do too much because that’s when you mess up. I’m going to come in and I’m gonna be Bruce, just like at West Virginia. I’m gonna get in where I fit in. I’m going to come in and work hard every day and when it’s time for me to go in I’m going to make the most out of the situation.
It feels great. A lot of kids want to be in this situation. I’m fortunate enough to be one of the few that made it. I’m getting a chance to live my dream. It’s a great feeling and I’m looking forward to being successful.
I had an idea. I kind of figured I was going to get an opportunity. I didn’t know there was going to be this many cameras, but I felt I would get an opportunity. I’m just blessed to be here with a great group of players and a great coaching staff. I look forward to us doing a lot of great things this season.
