I had the honor of sitting down with one of the best safeties in this seasons NFL draft, Georgia S Bacarri Rambo.
Scott Porter: You could have declared as Junior with a good draft grade. What factors led to your decision to return for your Senior season at Georgia?
Bacarri Rambo: One of the reason I came back was to get my degree. I understand that football will not last forever. I feel like I had a lot of talent and I could really help the team win and get better. There were a lot of team goals I wanted to achieve like winning the SEC championship and the National championship. Another year could only help me get better. I felt we have a lot of unfinished business. I felt that I left a lot of plays on the field last year that I could make up for this year. I wanted to go out with a bang. You only get to play college football once.
Scott Porter: What do you feel are your greatest strengths?
Bacarri Rambo: My ball skills and learning what to do. I also feel I am a very good tackler. I am a leader in the secondary and a leader in general.
