UCLA placekicker Justin Medlock was the first player in the room, sitting down with several media types — including the Dallas Morning News‘ Rick Gosselin, ESPN’s John Clayton, The (Colorado Springs) Gazette‘s Frank Schwab, and one Kyle Sonneman from this here site. The topic? Medlock’s winning performance in a postseason all-star skills competition held at the Orange Bowl.
Colorado placekicker Mason Crosby — easily the most notable product of the Centennial State’s universities here among the rookies-to-be — is at one of the lecterns now.
When Crosby was asked if he had a preference on where he’d like to end up, his reply was succinct: “Whoever needs a kicker.”
He also told media that he uses golf to help him work on his kicking motion, as there are some commonalities between the swing of a golf club and that of a kicking leg, something that Broncos kicker Jason Elam has noted over the years.
Crosby also checked in with a height of 6-foot-1 and 3/8 and a weight of 212 pounds.
