Draft Diamonds Prospect Interview: Jay Wisner, WR, Auburn University
How many teams were recruiting you out of high school?
(1) Boise State
Where did you choose and why?
Saddleback Jr College. I was a late bloomer physically and was told if I took the JC route I had the talent for Div 1. Ended up getting offers from 3 SEC schools. Auburn university.
What were your goals for your senior year?
Do whatever I could to help the team and coach Malzahn get to a BCS bowl game.
Start every game, stay healthy, and finish the season as strong as I started.
Have any scouts met with you, and if so what are they saying?
Yes, I have the speed and explosiveness to play both the slot and outside WR positions at the next level.
At your position, what separates you from the others?
Experience of playing in the SEC and Speed.
Tell us what you look for when breaking down film?
Alignment, assignment, and my own individual effort.
Who was the toughest player you have ever faced?
Eric Reid, LSU.
If you could compare your play to one person in the NFL who would it be?
Hines Ward/ Victor Cruz
What was the biggest obstacle in your life you had to overcome, and how did you overcome it?
Being from the state Montana and being physically a “late bloomer.” Sought out great coaches/ teachers and worked harder than everyone else/ every day.
What system fits your style of play the best?
Playing in the slot, option routes.
What is your biggest strength?
Being able to play both in the slot and outside. WR savvy.
What is your biggest weakness?
Special teams experience with tackling.
If I were a GM and gave you a second to sell yourself, what would you say?
The WR position is what I was made to do, no one will compete, work harder or more at their craft than myself.
Growing up, who was your role model?
Probably my grandmother
Who was your favorite team and player in the NFL and why?
49ers, Jerry Rice and Michael Irvin. Because I heard stories of Rice’s work ethic of him catching bricks and runnings hills. And Irvin’s competitiveness on and off the field. And how they each transferred that to playing on Sundays.
What was the most tragic event that ever happened in your life and how did you overcome it?
My dad committed suicide when I was 14. Found a little faith and a big work ethic and haven’t turned back since.
If you were to have dinner with three people dead or alive who would it be?
Steve Largent, Malcolm Gladwell, and Eminem.
With your first paycheck what would you buy?
