Interview with Bacarri Rambo at the Senior Bowl

Excerpts and Thoughts from my interview with Bacarri Rambo at the Senior Bowl.

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

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 )

Q:

Were there safeties that you looked up to when you were younger?

A:

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.

Q:

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?

A:

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.

Q:

What's the one part of Sean Taylor's game that you really try to model yourself after?

A:

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.
