SD: What went into the decision to forego your senior year at Syracuse and enter the NFL Draft? JP: I wanted to step myself up to the next level. My body of work speaks for itself. I am one of the best offensive tackles in the country, and I know I’m ready for this. I was a 3 time All-Big East selection and I left everything I had on the field. This has been a dream of mine since I was a little kid. I knew I was ready for this challenge.
