Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
Will he be running a seam to get there, or will he go with the slant?
Was not asked any odd questions at Combine
Was asked if he was engaged or in a relationship -
Was asked what position he wanted to play ("Are you sure you don't want to be QB/that you want to be a WR?") - focused on playing WR
Said he's comfortable relinquishing QB position, will do what coach asks
Comfortable making a team in whatever position he's asked to do. "If they draft me as a corner, let's play corner!"
Compares himself to Cobb
Did he say he was asked if he was gay? Like point blank asked? Or did he say he was NOT asked? I'm not sure I believe my own ears.... anyone else hear or not hear this? I think it was at the beginning of the interview...
was NOT asked if he had a gf or was gay, just engaged or married
Dan Patrick asked if the NFL asked Denard if he liked girls. Dan Patrick implied that NFL cared if the player was gay or liked to chase girls...
Didn't want to discuss Vincent Smith hit - says the hit was overpublicized compared to reality since Smith popped right up
Got called back 3x on 40 yd dash, implying that threw him off a bit
Couldn't do reps due to elbow. Could do 15-18 reps if he had.
Commended by Dan Patrick for being willing to play whatever position to make League
Denard asks D Patrick to vote for him for NCAA Cover - Patrick is from Ohio and refuses to vote due to the Buckeye issue. Won't follow him back on Twitter either. Decent bit, DP wasn't being a jerk about it... said it's due to how UM broke his heart as a kid.
Patrick requested autographed shoes from the Combine to put in his Man Cave to buy his vote
One Shoe Untied, autographed
"Sort of Go Blue"
Patrick relented, encouraged vote. Will Follow him on Twitter. Commended him again for being a team guy over demanding QB position.
Another score! Dan Patrick loves to make every interview about himself somewhow. Glad to see Denard is saying the right things.
The Michigan-helmet-Denard-dreads t-shirt on the wall in Patrick's studio is pretty sweet. I hadn't seen that before.
When Patrick said "I can't say Go Blue", I wish Denard had said "You just did."
