Myron Rolle Would 'Love Playing For Chiefs Coach Crennel'

Arrowhead Pride reader tomahawk44 had the opportunity to ask a few questions of former Florida State safety and future NFL safety Myron Rolle.

Rolle's story is well-documented. He was the No. 1 player in the nation coming out of high school, finished up at FSU in three years and instead of entering the draft last season chose to study at Oxford.

Yeah, he's a smart dude. Tomahawk44 asked Rolle about playing for Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel, who coached in the East-West Shrine Game.

I would love playing for Coach Crennel. We first met at an NFL Mothers Association Luncheon last year and then again at the Shrine Bowl (I train in Orlando and he was coaching one of the sides). He is a great man, with a strong family and an impressive intelligence for football.

I hope more players are thinking like that.

A few more from the Q&A after the jump.

What are you doing to get yourself ready for the draft?
I am training 6 days/week, talking to family and friends who have played in the NFL and I am committing to the Lord for peace of mind through this tumultuous time.

What will you be doing on draft day?
I will be spending quality time with my family and close friends on draft day. There will not be too many people present.

How do you think your play in the college level will transition to the NFL level?
I have been told by current and former NFL players that I will be a better college player than pro because I have a strong work ethic, athleticism, physical measurables and most importantly - intelligence. I lean on and trust their judgment.

Has your cousin Antrel Rolle gave you any tips on moving up to the NFL?
Antrel has been a fantastic source of support, love, knowledge and honesty that will prepare me for the challenges that lie ahead in my path to the NFL. I could not have asked for a better person in my corner.
