Former Oregon State center Kyle DeVan continues his NFL Draft diary for EMQB with this quick Q&A. Be sure to check out Kyle’s previous post.
If you could pick one team to play for, who would it be? I don’t have a specific team that I would want to play for. Any team that wants me to play for them will be new favorite team. No matter where at in the country the team is located, I will be excited to contribute to their organization. Who is your favorite football player of all-time and why? That is an easy one for me. Of course, the greatest quarterback of all-time, Joe Montana is my favorite. I grew up close to San Francisco and really enjoyed watching him play. He had some of the greatest comeback wins and with him playing, you always knew that the 49ers had a great chance to win. What NFL player are you excited about playing against? That is a very tough question to answer. Everybody in the NFL are tremendous players. Most of the NFL players consist of guys I have either grown up watching or have watched for the last several years, so every match up will be exciting for me. Who is your favorite NFL center? Jeff Saturday from the Colts. I think he’s a tremendous technician and is about the same size as me. Having played at such a big-time college, do you think the NFL will be that big of an adjustment for you? Of course the jump to the NFL will be an adjustment. These guys are the best of the best. Everyone is bigger, faster, and stronger than anyone I faced in college. But, I hope that playing in a premier football conference will allow me to make the step a little easier and faster. Who do you give the biggest shout-out to? My mom, dad and brother! They stuck with me for a very long time and I owe it all to them. I have to give some love to the rest of the family and all the coaches that have helped me get to where I am today.
