UCLA alum Maurice Jones-Drew, the second-leading rusher in the NFL, will be featured on the NFL Network's Sunday pre-game show, NFL GameDay Morning, which airs between 6:00-10:00 am PT.
Jones-Drew sat down with Michael Irvin for a one-on-one interview earlier this week which will air this Sunday.
Here are some quotes from the interview:
On critics doubting his ability to be effective given his small stature:
"That's what drives me. I think that and obviously being slighted in the draft because I was 5-7 was something that was going to continue to drive me every day. Every day I wake up and come out to be the best I can be. At the same time, how you prove people wrong is by winning."
On being a playmaker:
"You putting your body on the line, that's showing everybody else how much you care about winning. That's what makes you a playmaker."
On the Jaguars:
"We don't care about how many guys you put in the box. You could put 13, you can bring the fans out and put them in if they want to, but we're going to run the ball. That's just what we're going to do and you have to stop us."
