Odell Thurman Interview (Post Draft)

Postby DUKE » Tue Apr 26, 2005 1:20 pm


Q: How do you feel about having two of your Georgia teammates here?
OT: “It’s been a pleasure to play with David Pollack for three years, and now I get to play with him for as long as they want to have me. It’s going to be great. I can honestly say that Cincinnati has the best defense in the NFL right now.”

Q: Because of you and Pollack coming in?
OT: “Two of the best defensive players in the draft, Cincinnati got them. Cincinnati got the biggest steal of the draft.”

Q: What kind of hitter are you?
OT: “I’m a run stopper. Put them in front of me, and I’m going to win.”

Q: What else do you bring to the table?
OT: “It’s a long list of things. We could go on for days.”

Do you think it affected your draft status at all?
OT: “I don’t know. I’m right where I want to be.”

Q: You were disciplined by the team a few years ago and obviously came back. How have you matured over the years?
OT: “I came back and feel like I’ve been on the right trail ever since. Get back to the top. I’m in Cincinnati now. I’m trying to steal the spotlight from Chad Johnson.”

Q: What do you know about the Bengals?
OT: “I know from looking at their roster that they are a young team. They brought in myself and Pollack, and like I said before, we are two of the better players in the draft. I know a lot about the Bengals because I’m on the Bengals

Q: What can the fans look forward to seeing you on the field?
OT: “Look for a very exciting player on the field. Like I said before, I’m going to steal the spotlight.”

Q: Is there any one you compare yourself to?
OT: “I think I’m different from all the other players you’ve seen. I’ve got my own style.”

I like having a guy with some attitude and swagger on our D. We haven't had that since TKO left.

Speaking of yin and yang, Odell discusses that and other things in an interview with Geoff Hobson:

He's a likable guy, and I find it interesting that his teammates are making comparisons to Takeo
