RUEBEN RANDLE: Relieved. Sitting back there with my family, I was just anxious to get an opportunity to get into the NFL.
Q. What was going through your mind when you were the last person back there?

Q. How does it feel to play for New York?
RUEBEN RANDLE: It's going to be a great opportunity for me coming in with a great quarterback like Eli, leading the league, great receiving corps with Victor Cruz. I’m just going to be glad to have the opportunity to come in and help those guys out.
Q. What do you see are your strengths as a wide receiver?
RUEBEN RANDLE: I just like to make plays. Whatever the coaches need me to do, I'd be willing to do that for them.
Q. Are you ready to go up against Morris Claiborne two times a year? RUEBEN RANDLE: Yes, we've had a lot of practice so I'm pretty sure it's going to be great for both of us to go against each other.
Q. Who wins?
RUEBEN RANDLE: I'd have to say myself. I'm not giving him the edge on that. It is a great opportunity to go against a great DB like that.
Q. Somebody told me I'm supposed to ask you about when Nick Saban was trying to recruit you at Alabama.
RUEBEN RANDLE: What you want me to say about it? Nick is a great coach, and it would have been a great opportunity for me to go up there and play for him, but decided to stay home.
Q. What was the process like with the Giants? Did you get a sense of how interested they were in you?
RUEBEN RANDLE: I had a sense knowing that they did have interest in me. I just didn't know when they were going to take me or when they'd have the opportunity. Now I'm thankful for the opportunity and I'm going to take advantage of it.
Q. Did you have a particular interest in playing for New York and is there a reason why?

RUEBEN RANDLE: I'm just thankful. I wasn't trying to worry myself with the whole situation, sitting back there talking with my family and just relaxing, grateful for the opportunity.
Q. Was there any frustration? Obviously when you come to New York you want to be a first-day pick. How do you process that part of it?
RUEBEN RANDLE: I knew coming in everything was out of my hands so I didn't have control over where I got picked or what round it may be. I just thank God for the opportunity to be here, just got to take advantage of the situation.
Q. Michael Strahan introduced you, and then it looked like you guys had a little bit of time so you talked to each other a little bit. What kind of advice did he give you?

Q. How did you like sitting back in that room with five Alabama guys?
RUEBEN RANDLE: Actually those are guys I've spent a lot of time with throughout this whole week. They put us in alphabetical order, so all the guys from Bama was kind of in my alphabet with the Rs. They're fun guys. We didn't have any disputes about the game or anything going on.
Q. What did the Giants say to you on the phone today because there are reports saying they wanted to pick you last night and they can't believe that you were there again tonight.
RUEBEN RANDLE: Was I ready to come in and compete and they were thankful to have me there and looking forward to me getting there.
Q. Who was the receiver you watched most growing up?
RUEBEN RANDLE: As a kid my favorite receiver was Randy Moss when he first came to the league with the Vikings. He was an exciting player to watch so I'm pretty sure that's why he got a lot of attention from future receivers like me as a kid.
Q. What about now?
RUEBEN RANDLE: Now I don't really have a favorite, I just watch all the guys, take a little bit from each and every one, try to build your game up a little bit.
Q. If there was one way to describe your play, what would it be?
RUEBEN RANDLE: I guess I'll just say fierce. Whenever I'm out there on the field, I don't want anybody to stop me. Whatever I'm out there doing, whether it's throwing, blocking or catching the ball, I know I want to be the best at that. That's how I keep my mindset out there playing.
Q. What was it like watching the Giants win the Super Bowl last year?
RUEBEN RANDLE: It was a fun game to watch. Not expecting to get picked by those guys, but now having the opportunity to go to the Super Bowl champions, I'm pretty sure it's going to be a great opportunity for me to be there.
