NFL Draft 2012: Chris Polk Interview From Senior Bowl

Chris Polk continues to try and boost his stock down in Mobile, Alabama at the Senior Bowl this week and thus far there have been mixed reviews. I've seen tweets and articles saying he's looked great, and others saying they weren't impressed. Because scouting is so subjective, I wouldn't put a whole lot of stock in it and rather go off his record and career at the University of Washington, but it's interesting to keep an eye on nonetheless.

More of that later, but first I wanted to point out an interview with Chris, who sat down with New England Patriots Draft.com's writer Doug Kyed at Senior Bowl Media Night for a few minutes, and he had some interesting things to say.

As Bob Condotta, Husky beat writer for the Seattle Times notes -

His most interesting response (about 1:50 in) comes when he is asked about the fact that he was technically a senior this year, having never received a redshirt season for 2008 when he played just two games before being injured --- the school had always listed him as having received the year. That he didn't technically get the redshirt year has allowed him to be able to play in the Senior Bowl.

Polk says in the interview that it was always part of the plan not to receive the official redshirt.

"I knew I was leaving this year,'' Polk said. "I didn't want them to turn in the paper work.''

If he really was always planning to leave, Polk kept up a good front throughout the 2011 season, insisting in interviews up until two days prior to the Alamo Bowl that he hadn't decided and would have to sit down with UW coaches and family and make his decision.

Here is the interview, again, tip of the cap to NEPatriotsDraft.com.
