Jean-Baptiste is today's Rookie Spotlight.
Can you gauge how you’re working into camp?
“I think it’s coming on a little slow. I’m just trying to pick up all the terminology of the playbook, different name calls, all the checks and just trying to get familiar with playing with some of the guys.”
What are you hoping for coming into the scrimmage?
“Just hoping and expecting to get better every day. Not making the same mistakes, and just competing.”
This team is pretty deep at corner and Coach Payton said many players have to make their initial mark on special teams. Do you feel like you’ll have to make an impact on special teams?
“Yes, especially if I want to get a lot of playing time. Special teams will be the first ticket to traveling. It’s one of the things that I’m really focusing on.”
Did you play much special teams in college?
“I played special teams, not too many my senior year. But I always played on one special teams unit, at least.”
Which units are you playing on now?
“I’m on everything.”
Do you feel comfortable with what you know about playing special teams?
“I feel pretty comfortable. Like I said, I’m just trying to figure out the names and who I’ve got to block on certain calls.”
