The '06 Draft Class: Jason Pociask, Drew Coleman & Titus Adams

Pociask On being a Jet…
It feels great and is unbelievable. I took a visit out there and I like the coaches, the facility, and everything. It's a relief to know that I am going to be a New York Jet.

On role as a Jet…
They didn't really get too specific with it, but they are happy that I have the capability to do both and I feel confident doing both. I think that they have confidence in me being able to play fullback and tight end on the line or an H-Back type deal, or whatever it may be. They didn't really say.

On having seven catches in college…
I was primarily a blocking tight end. We had another tight end and I'm sure you've heard of him, Owen Daniels. He is a great receiver and really talented. We both had a role, and I accepted my role and I took pride in it. My father was my offensive line coach in high school and he was an offensive lineman himself, so it is in my blood and I take pride in it, especially when you have good backs to run the ball. I take pride in blocking and would like to catch more balls, of course, everybody likes to catch more balls, but that was my role and I embraced it. I have confidence in my hands and hopefully I can catch some more balls with the Jets.

On current location…
I am at home in Plainfield, Indiana. It is just southwest of Indianapolis.

Coleman On his visit and being drafted by the Jets in the sixth round…
Yeah, we had a good visit. I had a good conversation with the team. I was really interested. My agent is out of New York and I feel it's one of the most exciting places in the world. I'm glad to get the opportunity and I'm just going to make the best of it, try to compete and win a starting job.

On if he attended the Combine…
No sir.

On any interest from other NFL teams…
Obviously the Jets. Atlanta, Houston, I've been to Dallas, I've been to Chicago, Arizona came in. I had a lot of offers late, I guess because I had a pretty good workout at my pro day. I can also return kicks. A lot of teams are looking for the special teams aspect of the game also. I knew I was a good player, but I had some history as far as injuries and things like that. So I think that kind of hampered my chances of going earlier. But hey, I'm happy where I'm at now. I'm happy to be a Jet.

On competing for a starting job…
Actually, (I'll do) whatever the team prefers me to do the first couple years, but I'm ready for any challenges. Maybe come in and play a little DB at nickel or dime. Even if it's just being a gunner or going down on special teams, I'm ready to help the team. The Jets are just a couple key players from going all the way, so I hope I can contribute and we can continue winning and have a successful season.

On if he played Running Back in junior college…
Yes sir.

On where he is at, technique-wise, learning the cornerback position…
I think I have a couple things (I can improve on), like maybe staying in my pedal a little longer because sometimes I try and use my speed more than my technique. I think that's maybe the biggest thing. I think everything else as far as coverage is good. I covered some good receivers in the Mountain West. I also covered Travis Wilson from OU pretty well. I think I have a competitive engine and can compete, but I still need some work as far as technique and things like that.

On his time in the forty-yard dash…
I ran a 4.4 flat on grass. I think it came out to a 4.34. I really don't know what it is as of right now, but I know it's a low 4.3.

Adams On if he knew if the Jets were interested in him….
I didn't know if the Jets were interested. I'm just glad they picked me up. I expected to be drafted, I just didn't know when or by whom. It's just a blessing.

On if he expected to be drafted…
I expected to be drafted. I just had no idea when I was going to go.

On a rumored lack of work ethic…
They say that about a lot of big guys. I'm just going to come up there and do my best to prove them wrong. I'm going to give it all I've got for the Jets.

On what position he will play...
I think I can play both. Whatever they want to do, I'm their guy.
