Alex Khvatov:  Tell us about your first day of practice here at the Senior Bowl. 
Aaron Donald:  It was a pretty good day.  It was good to put on the pads again, go out there and compete.  I am just going to try to build on what I did today.  Hopefully, I will be even better tomorrow.   
Alex Khvatov:  You had a dominant performance during Monday’s practice especially in the one-on-one’s, what was the difference for you out there?   
Aaron Donald:  I was going out there and competing.  I was doing the same thing that I have done throughout my career in college.  I was playing fast and physical.  I was trying to make plays.
Alex Khvatov:  You won every possible award during your senior season, what do those individual accolades mean to you? 
Aaron Donald:  It was an honor and a blessing.  I became a part of history.  It was amazing.  I am blessed to play the game of football and I got rewarded for it.  It was great to play with all of my teammates and learn from my coaches. 
Alex Khvatov:  What is the highlight of your career? 
Aaron Donald:  The whole college experience.  I loved being around my teammates.  I had three different coaching staffs, but I had the chance to work with Coach Chryst.  I built a great relationship with him during the last two years. 
Alex Khvatov:  What are you trying to show scouts this week?
Aaron Donald:  I will just keep going out there and competing.  That is all I can do. 
Alex Khvatov:  What are your strengths on the football field? 
Aaron Donald:  I am an all-around player.  I am a solid football player.  I can stop the run and the pass. 
Alex Khvatov:  Finish the sentence, Aaron Donald is…. 
Aaron Donald:  Someone that will go out there every single play and give it all he got.  Someone that likes to relax with his family.  In my free time, I like to play a little bit of ping-pong.
