Scott Porter: What are your biggest strengths?
Devin McCourty: I think my knowledge of the game along with my speed and quickness allows me to be versatile and do many different things on the field.

Scott Porter: Your twin brother, Jason McCourty, was drafted by the Tennessee Titans last year, in what ways has that helped you in preparing yourself for the NFL and motivated you to make it to the next level like he did?
Devin McCourty: He's been my backbone through this whole process. I talk to him every day and I'm able to just talk to him and get feedback from him.

Scott Porter: What are your goals for the NFL?
Devin McCourty: My goal right now is to be in the NFL. I don't think you can formulate goals without first having the goal to get there.

Scott Porter: What drills at the Combine do you expect to excel at?
Devin McCourty: I want to excel at all the drills at the Combine, that's my goal.

Scott Porter: What player in the NFL reminds you of yourself the most?
Devin McCourty: I don't know who I'm most like but I do admire Darrelle Revis' game and Ronde Barber.

Scott Porter: What advice would you give a Freshman going into his first season as a college athlete?
Devin McCourty: To just work hard. My freshman year I was a redshirt while my brother played and I didn't worry about anything, I just put my head down and worked as hard as I could.

Scott Porter: What memory or accomplishments stick out the most in your mind during your college career?
Devin McCourty: This year, being named captain, and then not being able to finish the Bowl game -- but coming back to the field and seeing all the players say, �This win was for D-Mac.'

Scott Porter: What hobbies do you have off the field?
Devin McCourty: I love bowling. I secretly want to be a pro bowler.

Scott Porter: Who has been your biggest influence?
Devin McCourty: My mother and older brother. I admire their work ethic and the sacrifices they have made for others.

(September 21, -- Virginia Tech redshirt sophomore RB Ryan Williams is questionable at best for Saturday�s conference opener against Boston College after he injured a hamstring in last weekend�s win over East Carolina. The injury is not believed to be serious even though Williams had to be helped off the field and spent the second half on crutches, however, he has practiced on a limited basis this week.
