Washington Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan is at the NFL Combine this week where he's being joined by Larry Michael, Voice of the Redskins, and's Andrew Walker for a few videocast segments.

During Thursday's "Ryan Kerrigan Videocast," the Purdue product discussed one of the interviews he went through (not with the Redskins) when he was a prospect.

"My chair is in the center of the room, and then spread out in kind of like a hemisphere around me is all the brass from this team -- GM, head coach, defensive coordinator, D-line coach," he began. "They asked me to describe myself on and off the field, and I was like, 'Well, you know, on the field I'm an aggressive guy, I like to really mix it up, be physical. Off the field, I  like to think of myself as pretty laid back, low-key, nice guy.' ...Well, the defensive line coach said that he didn't want any...wimpy nice guys playing for him."

As it would turn out, Kerrigan would be selected by the Redskins just months later, and now, four years later, he's back in Indianapolis to provide exclusive access from the combine.
