    Michael Kranzler: Coming out of high school, Vanderbilt and Ole Miss were in a bit of a recruiting battle to win your services. What led you to sign with Vanderbilt?

    Lamar Divens: It was closest to home, plus my girlfriend was pregnant with my son at the time and I wanted to stay close to them.

    MK: What was it like playing with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who is the cousin of your new teammate, Antonio Cromartie?

    LD: It was fun. He was always just joking and laughing all the time.

    MK: Have any of the veterans started to mentor you on the field?

    LD: I think we’re a pretty close-knit bunch of guys. Everybody tries to help out everybody. I take pointers from what everybody has to say.

    MK: What do you feel is your biggest strength?

    LD: Stopping the run.

    MK: What do you need to improve upon most in order to have a good chance at making this team?

    LD: Just understanding the playbook and reading my keys.

    MK: What do you like to do in your free time?

    LD: I just like to hang out with friends. I just enjoy being around my friends.

    Every year AJ and company find a DL from UDFA ......

    DQ Scott, Jacques Cesaire, Derrick Robinson, Brandon McKinney, Louis Leonard, Lamar Divens ...

    I think this one has a good shot at a future with the team, but it might take a year on the practice squad. Roster spots are slim, and he's pretty raw. Hopefully, no one will poach him like St. Louis (contrary to some minor league writer's reports) did to Leonard last year.

    We need to find a replacement for Jamal. If Lamar is good we should give him a spot. We did have some spots open up, maybe make some room with Dobbins and one of the older players.

    I think the NFL needs to expand the Roster by a couple spots.
