From Joseph Frank in Pennsylvania: What is it like to join the number one defense in the NFL?
Ziggy Hood: Awesome.

From Tom Stephenson in Ohio: How welcoming and helpful have the veteran defensive linemen been so far?
Ziggy Hood: They have gone above and beyond teaching me the ropes and not giving me a hard time because I am a rookie. It’s been a pleasure to work with these guys.

From Lou James in Texas: You worked at Sonic during high school. What lessons did you learn there about the values of hard work?
Ziggy Hood: if you want more, you will put more time and effort and hours into what you want to achieve. In order for me to make more money, I had to put more hours in.

From Jamie Coles in Ohio: I read that you skated when you worked at Sonic. How did a guy your size skate?
Ziggy Hood: I can rollerblade I can do that perfect. I did all right. It was my junior and senior year. I was about 225-230 then. I think I lost more weight than gained it working there.

From Dan Potts in Pennsylvania: Have you heard yet how passionate Steelers fans are about the team and are you looking forward to playing for a team with that kind of atmosphere?
Ziggy Hood: I have seen it myself. If you run into a fan that recognizes you, you can see the fire in their eyes. You see the passion they have for the football team and what they stand for.

From Harry Lowery in Florida: What is it going to be like for the first time to see your jersey hanging in your locker at Heinz Field?
Ziggy Hood: It’s going to be a sense of achievement, something I have been waiting for my whole life. It’s so motivating and makes me work harder.

Well, regardless of what happens on the field, this kid seems to have it upstairs.

Ziggy has it figured out. Hopefully his contract negotiation gets settled quickly. It shouldn't be that big of a deal because he was picked last in the first round. But you never know. As long as his AGENT isn't too greedy it should be fine. He seems to want to be a Steeler really bad.

The more I hear about him the more I like that we drafted him. He sounds like he wants to be a steeler.
