What is your name?

Kenneth Bibbins Jr.

Where do you play college football?

University of Houston/Houston Baptist University

How many teams were recruiting you out of high school?

5

How did you choose your school?

I wanted to stay close to home.

Where are you from?

I was born in New Orleans but grew up in Houston.

Who is your role model, and why?

My mother is my role model because she is one of the hardest working individuals I know.

Have any scouts met with you yet, and if so what are they saying?

Not to many scouts know about me, but a Rams scout did come to one of my practices.

Did you play any other sports growing up?

Growing up I also played basketball until I got to college.

Did you play any other positions in football?

I played some WR

At your position, what separates you from others?

What separates me from others is that I can line up anywhere on the field and run any routes effectively. I also believe I’m a huge threat after the catch.

When you are breaking down film, what do you look for?

When breaking down film I look for tendencies at every level of the defense. Are the DE’s straight up the field or are they just sitting back and reading the play as it develops? Are the backers better downhill players or better going from sideline to sideline? Do the secondary give up there coverage pre-snap and are the safeties flat footed at the snap?

Who was the toughest player you ever faced?

I don’t really remember going against a standout “tough” player, but the best player I have ever went against was probably DJ Hayden, we went at each other a couple times at practice before.

I would compare my play to two players: Jermichael Finley & Vernon Davis. Because of their versatility and the ability to stretch the field.

When I transferred it really hit me hard mentally, but it turned out to be a blessing in disguise because it humbled me.

Do you have any pre-game rituals?

I just like to listen to my music and relax.

What is your biggest strength?

My biggest strength is catching the ball, put it anywhere and I’m going to go get it.

What is your biggest weakness?

My biggest weakness is playing to high sometimes, when I don’t have a good pad level, it allows the defender to get leverage on me.

If I were a GM and gave you a second to sell yourself, what would you say?

If you want a player that’s gonna be a match up problem to a defense, and a player that’s gonna cause problems after the catch, I’m right here.

Who was your favorite player and NFL team growing up?

My favorite player was Jermichael Finley and my favorite team was the Saints.

If you could have dinner with three people dead or alive, who would you choose?

Shaq, Achilles, Katy Perry
