These are the interviews from Thursday....

Ben Wilkerson / C / LSU

- 6'3 3/4/300

- He will not work out here.

- He tore his left patella tendon this season and missed the last four games of the season. He had a wire placed in the knee but has since been taken out. The pro day date (3/9) could be a bit early for him to work out.

- Allowed two sacks last season and only one holding penalty.

Scott Young / OL / Brigham Young

- 6'3 1/2/312

- Set the record of 44 reps at 225 pounds and also had one deducted.

"It was a little under what I expected. The last few weeks I did 47 or 48."

He said his record is 53.

What's his secret?

"Holding your breath until you get to 30 (reps) then take a breath and see if you can get 10 more."

- Will do a full workout.

- He started at defensive end then moved to nose tackle before going to offense playing at guard which he has only played for 1 1/2 seasons.

- He didn't think the transition from playing defensive line to playing on the offensive was a tough one.

"I thought it was pretty fun. It put a little spice back in football (for me)."

- He feels that he's very coachable but has plenty of aggression which is needed on the offensive line.

Kay-Jay Harris / RB / West Virginia

- He was drafted in the ninth round by the Rangers (MLB).

- He said the experience of playing minor league baseball will help him because you had to prove yourself and he learned to play in front of small crowds and to give top effort.

- Will work out fully here and wants to prove that he's one of the best backs.

- He rushed for 337 yards in his first game of this past season then hurt his hamstring which he had to deal with all season. The hamstring is totally healed.

- Friend of Seattle wide receiver Darrell Jackson who told him to go back to college and play and then to play in the NFL.

Cedric Benson / RB / Texas

- Will not work out here but will do so at his Pro Day on 3/23.

- He said he has put his baseball career is behind him and will only play football.

- He has cut his hair to kind of change the image people have of him. He is in a sense trying to put his collegiate career behind him and to get a fresh start.

- He said he was close to coming out early for last year's NFL draft but he felt staying in school one more season would help him improve in a few areas.

Chris Spencer / C / Mississippi

- 6'0/309

- In regard to coming out early, Spencer said had already made the decision to leave early and then he received a second round grade in his evaluation from the NFL that made his decision easier.

- Will workout fully here.

- He said he never gave up a sack on the collegiate level or in high school.

- He has played both guard positions in college.

- He models himself after Green Bay center Mike Flanigan. Why? Because of the way he held the ball. He called himself as the best center in the SEC.

J.J. Arrington / RB / California

- Measured at 5'8 7/8/214

- He grew up an Eagles fan. He was a big Randall Cunningham an called him the "first Michael Vick".

- Most teams were looking for him to catch the ball more during Senior Bowl week.

- If he had the first pick in the draft he would select his teammate QB Aaron Rogers.

- He feels that his best attributes are his speed and great vision.

- He will work out fully here.

- His goal is to run a 4.4 here.

- The teams showing most interest have been the Bengals and Browns.

Ciatrick Fason / RB / Florida

- 6'0/207

- Will work out at his pro day on 3/7.

- Entered the draft to support his family (wife and child).

- He thinks he will be selected on the first day of the draft (second or third round).

- Only had 230 carries in college.

- Sees himself as Seattle running back Shaun Alexander. Calls himself a glider.

- People underestimate his speed because he's taller than the average back.

- Because of the number of running backs on the roster, he wanted more work and became somewhat impatient and came close to leaving to play at another school.

- Even though he grew up in Florida, he actually was a Walter Payton fan than an Emmitt Smith. He wore #4 in college but felt he wasn't worthy of wearing Payton's #34 in college. However, he may decide to wear that jersey in the NFL.

- He cited the Browns, Vikings, and Jaguars as all showing interest in him so far this week.

Chris Kemoeatu / G / Utah

- Measured in at 6'3/344

- Used to play on the defensive side of the ball. "Defense is a lot more fun. You find some little things on offense that make it fun."

- He was asked about his temper and he talked about an incident.

In his junior season, he got bent over a pile by a defensive player and he thought it was a cheap shot and he wound up kicking the player in the face.

"I over reacted in the heat of the battle. I think I have matured from that. You have to be a different person on the field."

- Calls QB Alex Smith a great motivator.

Elton Brown OL Virginia

- Measured in at 6.47/329
