Quotes: Bashaud Breeland (5.10.14)

CB Bashaud Breeland (Round 4, No. 102 Overall)

On his emotions after getting a call from the Redskins:

"Man, I was just excited when I got the call. I was kind of nervous. I didn't know if I was going to get it early or get it late, but they got me and I'm ready to go to work."

On where he thought he would be picked:

"I thought I was going to end up second, third, that was the information that I was getting, I was thinking the third round."

On falling past his expectations:

"It was a tough night, but I kept my face. I kept my face. It helped me get through the night. I knew the draft wasn't over. As long as I get a shot, that's all I need."

On his decision to leave early:

"My decision to leave early, I have an 11-month-old daughter right now and I just thought I was one of the top corners in this draft. I felt like I could compete with the best of them."

On his confidence in being a top-caliber cornerback in this draft and what he brings to the table:

"My physicality and my ball skills and my versatility. I can play different positions. I am not just a corner. I can play multiple positions."

On the role the Redskins told him he would play:

"I haven't really talked to them yet. They just told me that they were going to pick me and that is pretty much it. I did not really talk to them much through the process, but it worked out for the best."

On his knowledge of the Redskins' cornerbacks:

"I know a lot about them. D-Hall [DeAngelo Hall], he was one of my favorite corners growing up. I model his game. He's a very, very, very interesting player. He is really good."

On his daughter:

"My daughter's name is Jaelle Nicole Breeland."

On his goals and expectations for this upcoming season:

"I just want to come in and help the team in any way I can, just make a positive impact on the team, whether it's on special teams, whether it's coming off the bench playing, whether it's starting. Whatever my role is, I want to play and do well and do well enough so I can help the team win."

On if he played special teams at Clemson:

"I played special teams throughout my whole career – except for kick return."
