from nfl.com website:

Full name and position: Adam Steven Terry, offensive tackle
Date and location of birth: Sept. 1, 1982, Glens Falls, N.Y.
College and major: Syracuse University, History
1. What is the one thing you will miss the most about college?

Terry: The comraderie with my teammates. You're going to find friendships everywhere, but I have a couple of good friends that I met at Syracuse, I met my girlfriend at Syracuse. It's been a pretty good experience in that regard.

2. What is your favorite night-before-the-game meal?

Terry: I usually ate prime rib with a baked potato, usually served with a pasta as well.

3. Who is the toughest player you faced in college?

Terry: I practiced my first two years against Dwight Freeney. He's definitely at the top of the list.

4. What other position do you wish you could play?

Terry: Tight end. You still have the offensive lineman mentality but you also get to catch the ball and have a little glory behind you.

5. Who were your idols as a child?

Terry: Well, I'd say my parents and Walter Payton.

6. Whose throwback jersey do you most want (or already have) in your closet?

Terry: I'm not a jersey kind of guy, I usually wear button-down shirts and khakis, but if I had to wear one I'd get a USC Tony Boselli jersey. I don't think they make those, so it would have to be a special order.

Adam Terry is NFL ready thanks to years of practicing against Dwight Freeney.
7. What is your favorite thing to do in your spare time?

Terry: Lately I've been reading a lot, playing video games and I like music quite a bit. A good football book is Season of Life, that was a good book. I'm a Madden fan when it comes to video games, and I just got Brooks & Dunn's Greatest Hits Vol. II. A little country in there for you.

8. Finish this sentence: The first thing I will buy after signing an NFL contract will be ...

Terry: A suit. I'm a fan of clothes and like to dress well. I've already purchased two and I'll probably buy a couple more.

9. Name the most important thing you learned in college.

Terry: Perserverance. I didn't come in highly regarded and I don't consider myself leaving highly regarded, but just to come in every day and put your lunch pail down, grab your hard hat and keep going to work is important.

10. Pick one: Fame or fortune.

Terry: Fame. To be a household name when you finish your career, that's probably more important to me than having all the zeroes behind it.

11. Do you have any superstitions?

Terry: Nah. I'll usually pop in a CD and listen to a couple of songs before a game. Usually I'll watch Rocky IV before a game. That's about it.

12. Let's say you got to host NFL Total Access for one day. Who would your guests be?

Terry: I'd take my parents on, let them get their 15 minutes of fame. Bring my brother on as well, make it a good wholesome family show. I'd also like to bring on Jonathan Ogden and Tony Boselli. Granted, they get most of the exposure from offensive linemen, but they can deal with a little bit more.

13. Which NFL stadium are you most looking forward to playing in?

Terry: Newly-revamped Soldier Field. I'm a Bears fan, and just to be in that environment would be great. I would have liked to have played in the old Soldier Field, but you still get to see the columns as you walk in.

14. Name a question that you think would stump a fellow 2005 draft prospect.

Terry: What was the turning point of the Revolutionary War?

15. From Marlin Jackson's Pop Quiz: Explain the Pythagorean Theorem.

Terry: Oh, my high school teacher is going to kill me. The only thing I'm gathering is A-squared plus B-squared equals C-squared. (Editor's note: Terry is correct!)

16. It's 100 years from now. How are people going to remember you?

Terry: They'll know me on the field, but off the field I want to bring a lot to the community and be a household name in that regard. I know I'll be able to influence more than one kid's life, but to have them be successful would make my day. I think I'm doing that for a lot of people where I'm from due to the fact that we haven't really produced a lot of NFL players.

i think this shines a little more light on why 'the dominator' himself attended a syracuse workout. terry definately seems to pass the 'character filter' our front office has been so good at utilizing, not to mention he is freakin' man mountain (6-8, 330). sounds like a guy i would want to root for as a texan, here's to us finding a way to pick up adam terry:dancing:

actually adam terry projects to be draft in the top of the 2nd round

04-07-2005, 09:15 AM
he would definatly be our 2nd(#47) pick.. if he even fell to us there. He COULD go before Khalif Barnes.

i don't know about going before khalif barnes...some scouts have him ranked higher than alex barron...but i could definetly see him being equal to jammal brown...for some reason with all his athletic ability (brown) no one sees him being a potential LT...terry has the potential to be a LT in the pros which could get him looked at higher than expected
