    Looking at the measureables between you and the first overall pick Mario Williams by the Houston Texans you seem to have all the same tools he does.

    How would you compare yourself to him?

    Jason Hatcher, it is reported that you are the next great Leon Lett or Richard Seymour by comparision to players in NFL.
    My question is this, what are your true size dimensions, I have read that your anywhere from 6-5 to 6-6, speed in the 40 ranging from 4.84. to 4.92, with weight size of 288 to 280, and that your losing weight because your not eating the right kind of foods.

    So, what are your true size dimensions and speed.
    I as a Dallas Cowboy fan since 1966, I am really excited to have you aboard, and hope you help make our defensive line the greatest, even better than Doomsday ! or Doomsday !! with such players like George Andrie, Bob Lily, Jethro Pugh, or Ed Too Tall Jones, Randy White, John Dutton, & Harvey Martin.

    Finally, what do you think are your best assets being a defensive linemen, your run blocking or your pass rushing?

    I've heard (read) that you're pretty good on passing rushing, but not as strong in run defense. What are some of the things the coaches have you working to improve?

    Jason, Congratulations on a great preseason. I found myself watching your pass rush every time you were on the field. Great Job. My question is, What current or former NFL player do you think you are most like now, and who do you try to emulate?

    Would you be opposed to playing some Linebacker if the situation arose and how do you think you would handle that position?

    Hello Jason. Do you feel the Cowboys defense is an aggressive, attacking defense, and why? Is a lot of the defense still under wraps? We've seen some great individual efforts, like yours, but overall I can't get a handle on how agressive Mr. Zimmer wants to be.

    Jason, this question isn't about you necessarily, but about one of your teammates. When Greg Ellis was making the switch to OLB at the beginning of Training Camp, it seemed like everyone was really rooting for him. His being elected defensive captain. Would you care to shed some light on the situation.

    How much weight and strength do you lose over the course of a season.

    You get hazed at all during training camp?

    Who do you see as the leader of the defensive line?

    What vet has helped you the most making the transition from Grambling to the Dallas Cowboys?

    Don't care for the LSU part but I did the La Tech love.

    I would have answered that it's one of few schools where the parking lot has plates from all 50 states, couldn't believe how far people drove to attend school there.

    For some odd reason your post just took me back to the movie "Airplane". Did you ever see a grown man naked, Billy? :D

    how does it feel to know that you made it from a smaller university into the NFL? Also what was the first thing you bought with your first paycheck?

    You can practice all sorts of moves, train your speed and power, but when you're in a game situation, what one aspect is most likely to let you beat your man and get to the QB?
