    Draft Day Quotes - Jonathan Wade

    Jonathan Wade

    Cornerback

    2007 NFL Draft

    Third round, 84th pick

    (On his best 40-yard dash time)

    "I ran a 4.36 at the combine."

    (On how being a former wide receiver will help at the cornerback position)

    "It does help me to be able to look around and tell what is going on. Knowing how to look at a defensive back from a receiver standpoint helps out a lot. You pay attention to downs and distance more because you know what the offense is looking for. Type of things like that."

    (On developing at the cornerback position)

    "I have come a long way but I have a long way to go."

    (On being aware of the Rams interest)

    "I wasn’t aware and I was aware. It was more so that I wasn’t aware of their interest."

    (On anchoring the Tennessee track team)

    "I anchored my freshman year, the rest of the years I ran second leg."

    (On how it felt to be selected by the Rams)

    "Amazing! This has been the longest day that I can remember."

    (On where he felt he would be drafted)

    "I honestly had no clue. None! I am happy. Only 260 people get a chance to get picked and fortunately I will be able to sleep good tonight."

    (On how he spent draft day)

    "My family was here, but I was so anxious that I locked myself in my room all day and didn’t allow anyone to come in. I just opened my door when I saw the ‘unknown’ number call my phone."

    (On if he is happy because St. Louis is close to his home)

    "It’s really a good thing too because Tye (Hill) is one of my friends."

    (On how he met Tye Hill)

    "We actually met at a track meet in North Carolina and we just kind of clicked. I never knew that he was going to become who he became. We always looked out for each other on the field, watching it every chance we could, and switching phone numbers. He would tell me little things in my ear to keep me going. I haven’t talked to him in a while but the last time I spoke to him he told me I was going to enjoy myself on this day because I didn’t believe him."

    (On who is the faster runner)

    "We are going to see when I get up there. I believe I can take him. Tye is very fast but I have been working on my fundamentals and getting ready to get on the field."

    (On if he has been to St. Louis)

    "I have been through St. Louis but I have never been to enjoy myself but I’ll be going shortly."

    Wow I did not think he was that fast. That's two burners in the secondary if he can play at the next level.

    What is really cool is I thought Hill was really fast as well and they are friends! This could make for some good times like when was it Az and Torry? running down field together for that touchdown...
