Found May 27, 2013 on NFL Draft Zone:

Andy Mulumba of Eastern Michigan is an intriguing MAC product. A 6’4 260+ pound physical marvel that displays a knack for getting around the tackle, Mulumba notched 73 tackles and 7 tackles for loss. Although the Eagles struggled through a tough season, the Quebec, Canada-native Mulumba still had a fine year and is one of the more athletic linebackers.  Andy was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Green Bay Packers. It was my pleasure to interview Andy for NFL Draft Zone. Shaun DePasquale of NFL Draft Zone: Thank you for taking the time to speak with me today Andy. Can you tell me where you’re training for the NFL Draft? Andy Mulumba: I am training with Jim Kielbaso at Total performance in Wixom, Michigan SD: What do you feel are your strengths and things you may need to work on? AM: I am a very versatile player, and my strengths are mostly in playing the run and understanding defensive coverages. The one thing I need to work on is consistently put pressure on the quarterback by coming around the edge. SD: How do you feel your time at Eastern Michigan helped you prepare for the NFL? AM: the coaching staff was great, they have a lot of experience and knowledge about the game of football and they prepared me well as far as learning football on multiple levels. I basically had to learn a lot of offensive schemes in order to play and adjust against them. Plus, my physical abilities got better because of the strength program there. SD: What do you feel you bring to an NFL defense? AM: I can definitely be a rush end and stand up LB in the NFL. My abilities to learn the game and adjust fast will help me be factor to an NFL defense. Also, being a consistent player by doing my assignment could help as well. SD: What active NFL player do you compare your skillset to? AM: I like Terrell Suggs because of his athleticism, and I feel like I can bring the same thing on the table with my abilities to play the run, rush the QB and drop in coverage. SD: What has been your greatest accomplishment, athletically or personally ? AM: just being able to play 4 years of college football and getting my degree in April. SD: If you could have dinner with any 3 people, living or otherwise, who would they be and why? AM: Nelson Mandela : because of his tenacity and courage. Michael Jordan: talk about his competitive mindset. Steve Jobs: knowledge and innovative mind. SD: Give me the name of a teammate that doesn’t get nearly enough recognition. AM: Matthew Boyd SD: Last question, what would be your first purchase with an NFL paycheck? AM: Take care of my Mom and Dad and pay some of the loans I’ve taken few years ago. SD: Thank you so much for your time Andy. Good luck in Green Bay! AM:Thanks for the interest. Really appreciated.
