Who Dey Jr. here. I was lucky enough to be able to sit down & talk with the newest Bengals Right Guard and 2012 1st round NFL Draft Pick, Kevin Zeitler in a Stripe Hype exclusive two-part interview. Here’s a a link to part 1, and now for the conclusion of our interview:
WDJ: It’s been said that you will most likely be the opening day starter at RG. Do you feel ready and prepared as of now to start in the NFL?
KZ: Even though that’s been said nothing is given. I have to go earn that spot over the summer and through the camps. I have a lot of work to do before I would say I’m ready. I’m just gonna do everything I can everyday to make sure I can help the team in anyway that I can.
WDJ: Do you see yourself as versatile, could you be comfortable playing Center, Left Guard, or even Tackle should the need arise?
KZ: I do see myself as versatile. Since I only played right guard in college I’m naturally inclined to that position but I’ll be working on every position so if the situation comes up I’ll be ready.
WDJ: If you were able to play any other position on the field, what position would that be?
KZ: I think I would give DT a try just cause of my body type and the aggressive nature of the position.
WDJ: Do you have any personal goals for your rookie season?
KZ: Only to help the team in anyway that I can and to improve everyday.
