Julian Vandervelde Conference Call

On whether he has a scouting report on Greg Castillo, son of Eagles defensive coordinator Juan Castillo: "I mean Greg, we call him "missile" [because] he's so fast and he loves to hit people. I was at our spring game this year and kind of got to see that from a different perspective and he looked really good, looked really impressive and had a couple of interceptions. He's really developed as a heckuva player and hopefully we'll even see him at this level in a couple years as well."

On how he knows Eagles offensive line coach Howard Mudd: "Our coaching staff, obviously, is a big time offensive line staff. Coach [Kirk] Ferentz gets a lot of credit for being one of the best offensive line coaches in the country and I agree with that. And one of the people that they're constantly making references to is Howard Mudd. So just to have the chance to play for him; I met him when I took a visit to Philadelphia earlier this year, and the guy that he is and the kind of players that he's had success with, I mean, there's really nobody that I could possibly be more excited to work with."
