Shortly after being selected in sixth round, offensive tackle Sam Tevi called Chargers.com to give his first interview as a member of the Los Angeles Chargers:
Chargers.com: After sitting through 189 selections, what was that moment like to get the call from the Chargers?
Chargers.com: Did you have any feeling that the team was interested in you?
Tevi: No. I didn’t talk with them at all. We had no contact. They just watched me at my Pro Day and the Combine. After that they didn’t call me at all.
Chargers.com: What does Sam Tevi bring to the table and what do you need to improve on?
Tevi: My quickness is my biggest strength. My footwork. I think I am pretty physical, too. At the same time, I think I need to finish blocks more. That is what I will work on improving.
Tevi: Yeah, we got to know each other really well at the Combine. To go through this with them is going to be great. I can’t wait to ride through the whole process with them. It couldn’t be any better. It’s going to be one hell of a ride.
Chargers.com: You played with Tenny Palepoi at Utah. How close are the two of you?
Tevi: Very. He and I are brothers. He texted me a lot during this whole process. Once he found out I was going to the Chargers he texted me a bunch and threw a lot of jokes at me.
Chargers.com: What are your thoughts on the offense you are joining?
Chargers.com: Finally, what do you want to tell all the Chargers fans out there?
Tevi: I am going to contribute as much as I can to put a smile on your face. I’m ready to go to work. Read
