Where were you on draft day. I was I was in what turned out in California. And what's the phone situation like. Problem for I have my cellphone. Had to back a lot of bad -- -- -- I think there was a factor but. Just dictate that teams of the mid south I don't know if -- -- I mean has there ever been any reported cases of people mission to call. I don't know as there ever been one where the draft picks as all I don't wanna go play for you I don't like what he said OK so if I knew. In -- the packer executive. But like easier when you call me on the phone. Well in my case you know the Packers didn't have the pig at that time the Patriots. And you know about a minute thirty left some things and I'm not going -- -- get a call from a 920 number they I believe at the time. It was Ted Thompson from Green -- told me.

I would take you know that's -- kinda -- -- -- I'll be going to Green Day and I -- -- the rest is history. Do you want. Did did you ever wonder what it would have been like if you'd gone to New England instead. I didn't quite frankly I thought that's where I was going by. You know I guess I guess. That would be a little different but not -- I'm very happy with the situation I'm in right now but. They had the big thing about your activities that keep an open mind that you could end up with anything. -- -- -- ago leading up to the draft and I -- where road and now counts saying Robert Griffin the third is selfish. We saw that liner dated you know year too long. I'm Vince Young gun out before they could nitpick it just that it's weird how -- -- going in to the NFL. Yeah you know it is funny to see these so called out there and mock draft expert talk about these players. Coming out of college I think ultimately what really matters what you put on film and and even beyond that -- can't tell us. Players can be any good -- it's a crapshoot obviously you can do your best. Bite you know -- that off the college performance by the mean there's been number one. You know players of them but there's been created sort of been you know all the same players so you really don't know what -- -- so open field. But hell where you was how we described. Coming out of -- at a college. Know what the discount say or you're not mock draft profile. You know I didn't really have very a good college career your table -- and I only started in a few games in my senior year. You know I came out the same year with Brian Cushing and Rey Maualuga that you highly touted linebackers as well so I was kind of that third linebacker. In that regard. There that like I guess you can put that by. All they they continue the special teams guy not an every down back here and today I don't -- special teams every -- -- but it just goes to show you the you know these these so called scouts we've talked about. He's Clay Matthews Packers linebacker joining us Dan Patrick show did you talk talk to Matt Barkley don't about his decision. I did not -- but I met the kid -- future oddities. Number one he looks impressive but at the same time. You know I don't think I think he made you know it's part of especially the quarterback coming -- You know cannot if you're if you're junior you know the number one overall prospect or you're not up there as far as the top 510 pick I'd suggest you -- what he's doing the Smart. But as a linebacker I said what's the one thing that a quarterback has to have to be successful. The quarterbacks you've faced would that one trait that seems to be a common. She didn't north part of playing receiving record they have you know they have an awareness and -- going to be -- all know when not to say exactly it is -- that you know that hiding in their head to win the other released the ball. The receivers coming out of their breaks when the pacers' game after all and it's that that makes -- a quarterback like. You know my own Aaron Rodgers is just a pain in the butt to play against. I think -- underrated as an athlete you see him every day where would you assess him if you go Michael vicar Cam Newton on one end Delaware's Aaron Rodgers. -- He's -- -- -- you just make some plays with his feet outside the pocket and obviously it's there it was duty to do with his arm but I. I don't know I mean he you know -- -- -- separate himself a lot of these things he couldn't continue. You know walk and he is but obviously to see where he put himself that you know -- a few years from now. Yeah that sounds like you have a hard time even complementing your own quarterback. Well you know -- stay humble person that I got MVP is important we're going to say anything get a trophy that says otherwise. What about -- know how -- do you think he's gonna do. I think it that far and obviously you know from from his on which he got in last year. You know -- -- on -- show on the into the fourth quarter games which we had going back to last there to shoot two years ago went nowhere without concussion came -- we play the Patriots and took them to the last play. To you know this season -- seventeen the past year which he threw for franchise record 600 yards so. You know I don't think think he has some golf -- it should be a good fit for -- we obviously ambitious public workers. Young -- to I didn't dent and realized that what you guys practice it's one thing you know he's going to be on the opposite side of the ball so when you wanna take his and Alfred. Yeah I not friends anymore. What are you doing with the prostate cancer research is his with that depends Eudora. It is well you know the great thing about it he Wes Welker democracy where. You wheeled -- dealt with a great American trial.

Kimberly-Clark and depend on 850000. Dollars and peace foundation. And like I said previously -- the benefit prostate cancer awareness so we're just we're -- a subject that.

With you guys trying to promote them who we guy's face in the Super Bowl by the way. I think we discuss who is the fact of Brentwood and Kentucky.

You don't real close obviously you know beat the Packers play the say that and then there's going to be a big rematch of the Super Bowl so together that's -- to be right. By the way the purple sweater from the Super Bowl. Lot of reaction. And a lot. A lot of good reaction I -- what you lower you know you'd think an otherwise. Well I just I couldn't pull it off.
