I was able to talk to BJ Baylor after the game, and along with other reporters, and spoke to him regarding the draft. Baylor played 4 years at Oregon State and posted career highs in yards and touchdowns as the main back this past season.

What was your first NFLPA Bowl experience like?

It was a good experience just being around a lot that are in the draft and the hall of fame coaches being there on our side, it was just a good experience for me

What would you do to improve your performance moving forward?

Just watch a lot of tape on NFL players that have already been through the struggle, just watch their tape, that’ll help me a lot

Speaking of NFL players, who’s your favorite NFL player that you model your game after?

Alvin Kamara and Christian McCaffrey

How do you think this bowl will impact your career?

Just being on NFL Network, that’s a dream come true. Being from where I’m from, a lot of people don’t get this opportunity, so I just took what I can do and showcased my skills, so I feel like it’s going to help me a lot.

I watched you in the LA Bowl, what have you done since then to improve your game?

I’ve been with the Denver Broncos trainer, so he’s been training me and helping me get me speed going, so that’s what I’ve been working on

What’s the biggest thing you’ve learned from the coaches this week?

You don’t get that many opportunities so when you do, showcase your skills and you gotta chance

Baylor finished the game with 3 carries for 12 yards and added on 1 reception for 12 yards. He also had a pass attempt on a RB option play that ultimately fell incomplete. Baylor will now look forward to the NFL draft after playing in his second bowl game this year.
