Exclusive First Interview with Marion Grice

Posted May 10, 2014

Marion Grice called Chargers.com mere minutes after being selected in the sixth round.

The San Diego Chargers added another versatile weapon when they drafted Arizona State running back Marion Grice with the 201st overall selection.  Shortly after being drafted, the sixth round pick called Chargers.com to give his first interview as a member of the Bolts.

Chargers.com: So what are your emotions like right now?

Grice:  I feel great.  I feel like the Chargers had a high level of interest in me all along.  I’d spoken with them and had an informal interview with them at the Combine.  So I know their interest in me has been pretty high.

Chargers.com:  You suffered a leg injury toward the end of your time at Arizona State. How do you feel right now?

Grice:  I’m 100%. I’m ready to go!

Chargers.com: How would you define your game?

Grice:  I can run it but also come out of the backfield and catch passes. I can make a lot of plays and break a lot of tackles.  And I am secure with the ball. But most importantly I’m an end zone guy.  I find ways to get the ball into the end zone.

Chargers.com: How about special teams?  You’ve had a lot of success as a returner in college.

Grice:  I take a lot of pride in that.  Special teams wins ballgames.  Punt returns.  Kick returns.  I can do both.

Chargers.com: The Chargers have some real good running backs on the roster in Ryan Mathews, Danny Woodhead and Donald Brown.  What are your thoughts on joining those talented veterans?

Grice:  I’m very excited to meet those guys and compete with them every day.  I want to pick their brains and learn.

Chargers.com: How about taking handoffs and running routes for a Pro Bowler in Philip Rivers?

Grice:  He’s one of the great quarterbacks in the game.  I’m looking forward to that and catching balls from him too.

Chargers.com: Sometimes it is hard for a rookie to make an immediate impact.  In what ways do you think you can make one in 2014?

Grice:  I want to complement the guys we have and come off the bench to give them a breather.  I can come in on third downs and make catches.  I’m a playmaker.  And I can help on special teams too as a returner.

Chargers.com: Lastly, what would you like to tell all the Chargers fans out there?

Grice:  I plan on coming in and producing.
