Q&A with a handful of the Sun Devils who particapted in ASU's Pro Day


LB Carl Bradford 

On how pro day went: “It went very well. I came out here and showed that I can still be fluent in my 40 and do the drills, and show that I can also drop back as a linebacker rather than showing my pass rush moves.”

On if going through the combine helped him today: “It definitely did. It kind of kept me alert. I was teaching everyone else what to do and what not to do.”

On the most memorable moment in a Sun Devil Uniform: “I would say beating UA every time. It’s a big rival. I don’t like them people down south. Every chance I got to beat them was a good moment.”

On whom he would compare himself to in the NFL: “Who I like and want to resemble is Von Miller. Just coming from that passing rush edge and showing his speed leaning on the edge. I want to channel his moves and his style of play.”


DL Davon Coleman

On how pro day went: “It went really well. I wasn’t 100 percent as far as running wise, but work out wise I gave it my all and some guys really noticed that.”

On the most memorable moment in a Sun Devil Uniform: “That’s probably the hardest question I’ve ever been asked. The touchdown I got was a great experience. To get in the end zone as a defensive lineman is always a good thing.”

On whom he would compare himself to in the NFL: “I really don’t think anybody. I really have my own game so I’ll say myself.”


S Alden Darby

On how pro day went: “It went really good. I’m pleased with everything. I felt like I came here and did what I wanted to do.”

On what he wanted to show the scouts today: “That I’m fluent in my hips and that my back pedal and hands are great. I wanted to just go to position work and show them that I’m good at that.”

On the most memorable moment in a Sun Devil Uniform: “Just beating UA and celebrating with my team, especially after my senior year. It felt great.”

On whom he would compare himself to in the NFL: “I love the way Richard Sherman plays, even though he’s a corner and I play safety. But I can play corner as well. I just love the way he plays. His swagger. His attitude. His character. A lot of people have him marked down as a bad guy, but man the guy’s worth ethic is off the charts. I love his style of play.”


RB Marion Grice 

On how pro day went: “Pro day was fun. I have to stay positive. I got to come out here and do some position work so it was fun.”

On bouncing back from an injury: “It has been okay. I’m staying positive everyday and pushing myself for the most part. I got cleared and I’m working extremely hard. I’m just trying to get back and give all the scouts an opportunity to give me a shot.”

On the most memorable moment in a Sun Devil Uniform: “The Wisconsin game when I scored four touchdowns.”

On whom he would compare himself to in the NFL: “I wouldn’t compare myself to anyone but some of the guys I play similar to are the (Matt) Forte-type guys. I play similar to him because of the fact that he’s a back that comes out of the backfield to catch the ball. I’m similar to him but I wouldn’t compare my game to him.”


CB Osahon Irabor 

On how pro day went: “It was a good day, not a great day. I wanted it to be great but you got to live with that and take it. The position drills went really well. I thought I showed them I could move, break, change directions and make a play on the ball. That was a huge positive for me.”

On the most memorable moment in a Sun Devil Uniform: “I’m going to say beating UCLA this past season at the Rose Bowl to clinch the south. That’s the first time we won a championship of any caliber since I’ve been here. So winning the south was a huge moment for me personally and for the program as a whole.”

On whom he would compare himself to in the NFL: “I would say Darrelle Revis just because he wasn’t blazing fast but he was a technician and just a talented football player. He didn’t run a blazing time but he’s just a great player.”


DB Robert Nelson

On how pro day went: “I think it went great for the most part. The DB drills went great. My 40-yard time was great and my shuttle and everything like that felt better.”

On the most memorable moment in a Sun Devil Uniform: “The UA game, when we went down there. I caught an interception to clinch the game and against Oregon State on this field I got two interceptions, including one for a touchdown to clinch the game.”

On whom he would compare himself to in the NFL: “Deion Sanders isn’t in the league but I’d have to say Deion. That’s one guy I’ve been watching since I was knee high. Also, Patrick Peterson and the Honey Badger, Tyrann Mathieu. He is a small guy but he makes big plays. The statement that he lays down is that it doesn’t matter how big you are, it matters how big your heart is. I think that I make big plays and big tackles; I had a lot of tackles this year for a small corner.”


LB Chris Young

On how pro day went: “It went pretty good. I hit the times I wanted to hit. Overall it went pretty good.”

On what he wanted to show the scouts today: “That I can have fluent foot work and that I can move for as big as I am. I just came out and did the best I could.”

The most memorable moment in a Sun Devil Uniform: “Playing in the Rose Bowl against UCLA. I feel like we all came together and to experience something like that as a team was pretty amazing.”

On whom he would compare himself to in the NFL: “I don’t really know but I just hope that they see me for the player that I am and like what I did.”
