Tell us how you felt playing in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome for the first time?

"It was awesome. Coming from a small school, you don't get to play in front of that many fans very often. It was an awesome atmosphere. It was my first NFL game. It was surreal."

What improvements do you want to make for the Raiders game?

"Just my focus on going out there and playing as hard as I can every snap. Just staying in the game as much as I can."

What veterans have you learned from the most?

"The tight ends are good guys. Jimmy Graham, Ben Watson, Michael Higgins have been great to us. Showing us the ropes and helping us out with the small things."

Have you had any rookie duties so far?

"Not yet, not besides taking the pads in the locker room off the field. That's it."

What do you love most about New Orleans?

"It's just a big change from where I'm from. I'm from small town Idaho. Just the diversity, the big city, all the people downtown. It's a lot different. It's been cool.
