Sonny Harris:
 
Are you happy with where you went [in the draft]?
 
I'm happy I got picked. I'm happy, but I'm not satisfied. I'm ready to play. I'm very excited. This is the second-best day of my life.
 
What was the best day?
 
Having my little girl.
 
Congratulations. How old is she?
 
She's two. She just turned two last Sunday as a matter of fact.
 
Did they talk to you about playing inside or outside here?
 
I talked to Coach Mitch[ell] and Coach Mitch said he would like me to play out. He thinks I can play outside with my ability. But I just want to play.
 
Have you ever played in a 3-4?
 
I've never played a 3-4. I feel like I can do it. I want to do. I'm so excited.
 
Had you had any contact with any other teams during the last two days?
 
I had contacts with Jacksonville. I had contacts with St. Louis earlier in the day. My agent was hearing things. I just got off the phone with my agent not too long ago and he said he thought Jacksonville was going to take me with the next [pick]. The Steelers beat them to it. I'm happy.
