Transcript - Jaguars Defensive Lineman Roy Robertson-Harris: June 3, 2021

(On working with Defensive Coordinator Joe Cullen) "He loves the game. He loves the game of football. I think we're getting a lot of energy from him and he's a good coach. Scheme is good. I think we're going to be very good this year."

(On the quality of the sports performance department) "They're trying to make sure everything is here for us, trying to make sure that we don't have to go all over the world to get everything done, which is a good thing. Having to travel 30 minutes up the road to get a massage or to get needling and all that stuff, he's trying to keep everything in-house. It's been great. I've been able to get everything I need done here at the building, so I don't have to travel, saves me time, saves me gas."

(On what he sees from rookie QB Trevor Lawrence) "I think Trevor [Lawrence]'s going to be great. Obviously, I don't know too much about what's going on on offense, but I think he's going to have a great career in Jacksonville. Playing for [Head Coach] Urban [Meyer], he's going to mold into the quarterback he needs to be. Obviously, I can't touch him or get near him, I'll be on the Greyhound bus back to Texas, so I try to stay away from him during practice. I see a guy that wants to win games. He's dedicated, he's bought in to the team philosophy. He wants to win and that's what we're here to do."

(On his relationship with DE/LB Josh Allen) "That's my guy. Josh [Allen] is my guy. We have great chemistry. We're always going at it at practice, competing against each other on get-offs. I beat him every time, but that's my guy though."

(On what stands out about Head Coach Urban Meyer) "He has great energy. You need that in a coach. He's very energetic at practice, in the meetings talking about what we're trying to accomplish this season, he isn't [monotone]. We're going to win some games. He's very energetic. He wants to win, and we all want to win and we're feeding off of that. We're feeding off his energy and that's what I love about Urban [Meyer]."

(On Coach Meyer's philosophy) "He talks about effort every day. Every single day it's all about effort. You put that little bit of extra effort in, that plus two mentality he talks about is real. It's real, so we see it in practice. Everybody seems to understand it, but it's just that extra effort that'll help us win games at the end of the day."

(On RB James Robinson) "I'm going to keep it 100 with you, I don't know too much about James [Robinson] playing tailback. But I'm more focused on the o-line, just going up against the o-line and the time we do go up against each other. James is a great player. I know James is going to go off this year. James is going to go off."

(On also coming to the NFL from a smaller school like RB James Robinson) "I feel like once you get to the league, whether you're undrafted or first round, you still have to prove yourself. I came in undrafted, I had to prove myself just like the first round or second rounder has to prove himself. [Me] being from a smaller school like UTEP and you say he went to Illinois State. He went crazy from what I understand a year ago, so he proved himself. Once you're at this level, it's the league, it's the NFL, so he did what he had to do to be a household name around here."

(On what makes him optimistic about this defense) "We have guys on the edge that can rush. We have guys in the middle that can stop the run. We have DBs that can cover them. We have linebackers that are fast, that can move good. We have a great all-around defense. As long as we communicate and we're giving that effort, I think we're going to be in a great spot."

(On working with Defensive Line Coach Tosh Lupoi) "Tosh [Lupoi] has been good. He's putting us through drills that are going to put us in good position in the game, that's pass and run. We've continued to stack great days with him, so I think Tosh is going to continue to help us improve each day and then once we get to camp and get passed on, he's going to continue to help us improve once we really get to play with the o-line."

(On his impressions of DE/LB K'Lavon Chaisson) "K['Lavon] loves to work. K's going to continue to grow as a player. He's really fast off the edge. He can work a lot of different moves. I think he's going to continue to grow as a player and play a long time in this league."
