Interview with Ra'Shede Hageman at 2014 Senior Bowl

By Charlie Campbell - @draftcampbell

One of the standouts at the Senior Bowl has been Minnesota defensive tackle Ra'Shede Hageman. The strong and fast Hageman has had a lot of success in Mobile and is doing his part to solidify a first-round grade.

Hageman broke out with an impressive 2012 season and was one of the better interior defensive linemen in the Big Ten. As a junior, he totaled 35 tackles, 7.5 tackles for a loss, two passes broken up, one forced fumble and six sacks. He then saw his share of double teams in 2013, as he recorded 38 tackles, 13 tackles for a loss, seven passes broken up, one interception and two sacks.

WalterFootball.com caught up with Hageman after practice for a quick interview.

What have been some of the coaching points you've been given by the Falcons staff?

"Coming here at first, I was a little rusty. Obviously I got back into it. The coaches were talking to me about staying consistent. I need to practice consistency and do the same thing over and over again."




You helped make Minnesota football relevant again in the Big 10. Was building the program one of the reasons why you decided to come back for your senior year?

"Yeah and at the same time I wanted to graduate and I did that in December. That was part of it, but I wanted to get my degree."

Did you talk to the advisory board or did you know you were coming back?

"I knew I was coming back. I wanted to finish school. That was the most important thing, with football. At the end of the day, football is not a long-term job so I had to plan for the long-term and graduate."

Who are some of the teams that you have met with?

"The Texans and the 49ers, a lot of them really. It is hard to keep track of them. I'm just trying to do my best out here and when I meet with them."




Both of those teams play a 3-4. You played in a 4-3, but you also lined up at times as a zero technique over the center and at end. Do you feel comfortable with any technique on the inside or playing 3-4 end?

"I told the coaches I'm down for whatever and I'm able to do whatever they want."

Which spot or spots do like the most?

"I like everything. In college I was able to play anywhere from the zero technique to the seven, so I think that's a real advantage."
