CNNSI Host: Welcome to today's NFL draft chat with Travis Prentice. Hi Travis, thanks for joining us.
CNNSI Host: So what is going through your mind right now as you gear up for the big draft weekend?
From Ryan: Travis, What misconceptions about your game have you been able to overcome through workouts at the Senior Bowl, NFL Combine, and individual sessions with scouts? Good luck in the NFL.
From Dale Sturgill: First of all I watched you play and you are definitely one of the best backs EVER! My question is with all of the athletes that the MAC is producing such as Randy Moss, Chad Pennington and yourself do you think that the "Small Conference" tag will finally be lifted?
From Brian: Does it bother you that you have not been shown off through the media as other running backs? Would you mind being a backup for the first two years of your professional career? Does it really matter where you get drafted?
From Guest: Do you feel that you can make the same kind of impact as a rookie as players such as Edgerrin James?
From Guest: What do you find is most important to gaining position in the draft, statistics or the combine results?
CNNSI Host: From Guest: How beneficial was the work you did with the trainers in New Orleans?
From Keith: I really enjoyed watching your career at Miami. I'm a recent graduate of Miami and miss the college life in Oxford a lot. What are you going to miss most about Oxford and what are you looking forward to most when you join the NFL?
From Guest: Who would you compare yourself with in the NFL today?
From Guest: Looking back, you could have put up some big numbers at bigger school. If you could do it all over again, would you have tried to swim in a bigger pond?
From Guest: Who will be waiting with you as you wait for that big call?
From Stephan: Which team do you want to play for and which teams have shown interest in you?
CNNSI Host: From Guest: How important is the mental game at the next level? Can you "practice" getting your mind in shape?
From Guest: So Travis, how would feel about ending up as a Brown?
From Guest: The Giants need a RB would you like to play in NY?
CNNSI Host: That's all the time we have for today. Thanks for joining us Travis. And good luck in the draft.
