04/30/12 - A two-time All-Colonial Athletic Association selection who transferred from West Virginia, Gradkowski ran the 40-yard dash in 5.25 seconds at his Pro Day workout and bench-pressed 225 pounds 29 times with a 28 1/2 inch vertical leap, an 8-7 broad jump, a 4.78 20-yard shuttle and a 7.75 three-cone drill. "I definitely take pride in being athletic," Gradkowski said. "I played basketball in high school. That's where I got my athleticism from. I'm good in space at blocking the secondary guys. I take a lot of pride in my ability to understand offenses and defenses. Mentally-wise, I bring a lot to the table." "It's good that I played all three inside positions at Delaware. My versatility, bouncing around the inside, obviously helps. Anybody that goes to the NFL wants to be a starter. That's my goal. If I need to be that swing man as a backup my first year, that's fine. I want to compete for a starting job." Gradkowski said he tries to emulate veteran NFL centers like Birk and Green Bay Packers center Jeff Saturday. "I'm just a hard-nosed guy, a hard worker," Gradkowski said. "I played at Delaware and we did a lot of pulling and stuff like that. So, I feel good in space and I feel like athleticism is one of my strong points. So, definitely versatility is also is my strong point." - The Sports Xchange
