Recently, I had the chance to learn a little more about Boston College and 2008 NFL Draft Prospect, SS Jamie Silva. Here is some of what he had to say about his career at Boston College, the upcoming draft and a whole lot more:
What do you think when you hear so scouting services compare you to a younger version of Corey Chavous? It is a great honor... He is a very good player at the next level so for me to be his comparison is great.
What was your best memory from your days in college? I had so many I really can't label one time.
What was your greatest victory while in college? Clemson -to clinch ACC championship game.
Who is the best player you've faced while in college? Not one man really sticks out
My greatest motivation in college was? To be the best safety in the country.
Finish the following sentence. My college stats fail to show. --- I don't think this applies for me since I was the most productive defensive player in college
What do you do when you want to relax and get away from football? Hang with my friends.
My opponents would say the best thing I do is? Make plays and hit and never stop
In a perfect world who is on the other line come NFL Draft day saying they are about to select you? Any NFL GM/COACH
My advice to players entering college this year would be? Work harder than the rest, believe in yourself, have fun, but be your own biggest critic
If you could play any other position what would it be? Wide Receiver
How did you come to select Boston College? Best football program that I received an offer from.
Any pre-game traditions of note? No traditions, just enjoy the surroundings, I usually enjoy some good music to (a mix of rap and R&B songs, little rock too)
