New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski stopped by FOX Sports to talk to fans. He also spoke…
Jordan Bernstine Q&A
We caught up with Bernstine for the following interview prior to today's campus Pro Day workout:
Scout: What kind of football player is the NFL getting?
Bernstine: "What I bring to the table is I'm a pretty physical player. I have the size and athletic ability to help me out of situations. I know defenses, I can learn schemes pretty quickly. I'm looking forward to the next level."
Scout: What kind of feedback are you getting from NFL teams?
NFL: "What we've been hearing right now is they like my versatility. They like that I'm a physical player. They like my stature, like that I can stick my nose in there and hit a little bit."
Scout: Are there any NFL safeties you emulate?
Bernstine: "There's a lot of defensive guys I like, Ed and Bob Sanders. Bob Sanders is probably my favorite player. He's an Iowa guy who's going to put a hat on you."
Scout: What should people expect from your Pro Day?
Bernstine: "As far as my goals, I plan on showing the scouts some things. I want to show them a little more than they were expecting. I'm looking forward to low 4.4 to 4.3 times, jump high, and run fast. I've gotten great support from my agent, Chris Martin, and the OTG family."
Scout: What does it mean to be an Iowa player?
Bernstine: "I feel like if you're an Iowa football player and you make it through the program and become a starter then you've built the trust from the coaching staff. You have to earn that. It means you're a hard worker and go out there and do the things necessary to get the job done."
Scout: How much does your family background help you in this process?
Bernstine: "My family has played a major part in it, growing up in my outlook on life and football in general. My uncle, Rod Bernstine, had a successful career in the NFL. That helps me out and helps me set my goals."
Scout: What are your interests besides football?
Bernstine: "I'm a pretty easy-going guy. I like to play a little PS3. I'm a Call of Duty guy. I like to watch movies, go bowling. It doesn't take much to entertain me."
Scout: Any visits with NFL teams coming up?
Bernstine: "Yes, I have a few meetings with teams. I have a private workout. I can't say which team it is. Things are starting to pick up. I'm looking forward to the process."
