The following is a list of 14 questions I would ask Larry English, the Chargers' first round draft pick for 2009:
- How does San Diego compare to the Chicagoland area?
- Did you have a chance to do any sightseeing?
- Have you gone to any good restaurants?
- Do you think you’ll take up surfing?
- What was your reaction when you found out the Chargers drafted you? Were you shocked or was it something you thought might happen?
- After going to minicamp, what would you say is the biggest difference between college football and the NFL so far?
- You’ve had a chance to work a little with the Charger defense. How similar is their scheme to what you had at Northern Illinois?
- What kinds of adjustments do you feel that you’ll have to make as a rookie in the NFL?
- Is the preparation going to be more mental or physical, or maybe both?
- Have you had a chance to work with Shawne Merriman? What’s it like working with him?
- Did you have a chance to line up against LT in practice? What was that like?
- What role do you expect to play on this defense in 2009, especially with Merriman and Shaun Phillips at the outside linebacker positions?
- What’s your first impression of working with Ron Rivera?
- What are your goals for 2009?
