Graham Bensinger: Getting invited to the NFL draft is obviously a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and you turned it down. Why?
Joe Thomas: I'm not going to define my career by where I'm drafted on Saturday. I'm going to define it by how I do … how many Super Bowls I win and how many Pro Bowls I go to. The NFL draft is pretty much a transition -- it's just a day where I find out where I'm going to be doing that.
Bensinger: How much consideration did you give to attending?
Thomas: Not much.
