When I was down in Mobile this year covering the Senior Bowl, I got the chance to interview the Washington Redskins 6th round pick Safety Bacarri Rambo. I found Rambo to be confident, engaging and with a deep passion for the game. I thought he had some great quotes that would interest Redskins Nation, and wanted to share a few of them with you.
You can check out the full interview here (note: I wasn't the one asking about his name so don't blame me for those questions )
Were there safeties that you looked up to when you were younger?
I used to look up to Sean Taylor. Rest in peace to a great man, he was a great player. I really respected him, and I looked up to him. But right now, I'd say Ed Reed. I just like his playing style. I just try to do certain things like him, like reading the quarterback and just playing certain types of coverages. And just having that knack for the ball.
You mentioned Sean Taylor earlier and I'm from the DC area. The Redskins need some safety help. What would it mean to you to be drafted by a team that a guy you idolized played for?
It would mean a lot to me. It would be just such an honor just to play for them. I would really enjoy playing for them. It's a great city and I know that I get a lot of love and support from a great fan base.
What's the one part of Sean Taylor's game that you really try to model yourself after?
His hard-hitting. He had great instincts and he was a hard hitter. So that's something that I tried to put on the field along with the great ball skills by Ed Reed. So that's two combinations of safeties that I tried to put together and bring to the table for my team.
