With the NFL Combine in full swing, Teresa Varley spoke to Cam, Arthur Moats and Landry Jones about their Csombine experiences.
Heyward wasn’t able to compete at the Combine because of an elbow injury he suffered in the Sugar Bowl, so for him the interviews were key.
“The crazy thing for me is I was hurt at the time so I had to use my brain, the way I talked, to get my point across,” said Heyward. “I had to show I was a student of the game. What I couldn’t show on the field I had to make up in the conferences, meetings. Every team is there, scouts, everyone is there. It’s one of the craziest job interviews. You will never forget it
“You almost treat it like a competition. They are testing your knowledge to see if you are a sincere person and how much you care about this game. They can tell from the get go if you are serious about this and you want to excel at the next level. They don’t know you, why you love this game, what you want to do when you get in the league. All these different questions.
“With the Steelers we got to write essays to see what we are all about. It’s really cool. It’s more than just the interview. It’s a great process.
