Sergio Kindle is thrilled about being selected by the Ravens with the 43rd overall pick in the 2010 Draft
Here's the Texas outside linebacker's first comment after hopping on a conference call with the Baltimore media: "Are ya'll gonna beep out explicit language? Because man, it feels F'ing good."
We just got off the call with Kindle, and if you couldn't tell from that quote above, he's quite a character.
Asked about what he knows about the Ravens and his thoughts of joining the Baltimore defense, Kindle went on a joyous rant that had the media gathering around the phone cracking up.
"They're usually in the top-five in defense yearly, regardless of what their record looks like," Kindle said. "Usually, their offense struggles, but they got Flacco, so that offense is gonna pick up like it did this year.
"It just feels good to be playing beside Cory Redding, Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs, and Ed Reed. I'm not sure if McAlister is still there, but...oh, and that dude in the middle [Haloti Ngata], I think he's Samoan. No disrespect if that's not what he is, but yeah, he's a beast too."
As for what he thinks he brings to the table, Kindle says he's considers himself a pass rushing specialist.
"I get to the quarterback, that's my deal," he said. "I can cover guys if that's what needs to happen, and I can play the run regardless of my size. I'm only 250 or 245, but my thing is, I'll take up a lineman and cause a path for Ray-Ray to slide in and make the tackle in the backfield. That's what I can do.
"And, getting to the quarterback is my specialty, and I can only get better learning from Suggs and guys like that. The sky's going to be the limit once I get there and actually get in the system."
