Matthew Dayes – Running Back – Senior – North Carolina State

 
Alex Khvatov:  Tell me about your first day of practice at the Senior Bowl.
 
Matthew Dayes:  It was fun being out there competing with the best college athletes.  It was a lot to remember from a playbook standpoint.  I personally did okay for the first day. 
 
Alex Khvatov:  What do you want to show NFL teams this week?
 
 Matthew Dayes:  That I can pass protect.  I can play whatever position they want me to play.  I am really good at catching the ball out of the backfield.    
 
Alex Khvatov:  What have you learned from the NFL coaches after the first day of practice?
 
Matthew Dayes:  These guys expect you to know what you have to do.  They won’t babysit you like they do in college.  It is a big difference for me.     
 
Alex Khvatov:  How did you wind up at NC State?
 
Matthew Dayes:  I was deciding between two schools.  It was between Vanderbilt and NC State.  I felt like NC State was the best choice for me.    
 
Alex Khvatov:  What is the highlight of your career up to this point?
 
Matthew Dayes:  My sophomore season.  We only won three games the previous year.  We won eight games that year.  I personally had a pretty good year.  It was one of my favorite moments. 
 
Alex Khvatov:  Who was the best player that you have ever played against during your career?   
Matthew Dayes:  The best player was Vic Beasley.    
 
Alex Khvatov:  What are your strengths on the field?
 
Matthew Dayes:  Catching the ball.  I don’t think any running back in this draft can catch the ball the way I do.      
 
Alex Khvatov:  What areas of your game are you trying to improve upon?
 
Matthew Dayes:  Pass protection.  I have improved on that a lot.  But I can always work on it.
