NFL Draft Diamonds and our staff have been bringing our readers Prospect Interviews over the past 2 years and this year we mixed up the questions and added some fun questions for our readers. We have tons of NFL staff that read our interviews, and we actually received several of the questions from NFL scouts we speak too. This gives them a little bit more information regarding your character. We hope to bring you more than 300 interviews of NFL Draft Prospects this season. You will be able to track them all on the front page of our website in the banner.

What is your name? 

Courtney Adeyemi Moshood

What is your Height/Weight? 

5-11 180

What is your position? 

WR, KOR, PR, GUNNER

Where do you play college football? 

University Of New Haven

Football is about giving back, what is the coolest thing you have done off the field? 

I’ve workout and mentor with the youth four times a week at Goulds Park in South Florida. Football down south is not a sport, it’s a lifestyle and younger kids look up to us for guidance. To do anything less then that would be a dishonor.

What was the hardest college class you ever had to take?

Scientific Methods in Criminal Justice.

Where are you from? 

Miami Florida

Who is your role model, and why? 

My role model is my parents because they’ve shown me what it means to preserve and be humble at all times.

Did you play any other sports growing up? 

Track and Lacrosse

Did you play any other positions in football? 

Yes. I have also played CB.

At your position, what separates you from others? 

What separates me from others would be my speed. It allows me to take the top off the coverage. I’m more than just a vertical threat. I possess big-time playmaking ability and I am also elusive in the open field.

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

I look for any tendencies in the secondary, such as tightness, lack of technique and impatient style of play.

Who was the toughest player you ever faced? 

It would be Al-Hajj Shabazz during my sophomore year of college.

If you could compare your play to one player in the NFL who would it be and why? 

John Brown because he is a speedy compact WR with big play capability from a D2 program like myself.

What was the biggest obstacle in your life you had to overcome, and how did you overcome it? 

Being a young father and having to balance responsibilities between being a student-athlete and a father to my son. The hardest part is raising him from a distance. I really haven’t overcome it. I know by graduating college I can lay down a firm foundation for his future.

Do you have any pre-game rituals?

Listen to Travis Scott and saying a prayer at the goal post.

As a small school football player what obstacles do you feel you have to overcome?

Just being able to show GMs that I am just as talented as other prospects, and if given the opportunity I can not only compete but also thrive against a higher level of competition.  

What is your biggest strength? 

My world class speed and big plays ability.

What is your biggest weakness? 

My search for perfection.

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

My name is Courtney Moshood from the University of New Haven. I love the game of football and would be honored to have the opportunity to be apart of your organization. I am a home run WR that can take the top off a defense for the big play and I can take the hitch the distance. I can also line up in the slot or outside. I love playing Gunner, KOR, PR, and any type of special teams. Football is very important to me and I take it serious. I believe that any man that wants more then an opportunity is ungrateful.

Who were your favorite player and/or NFL team growing up? 

Desean Jackson Miami Dolphins

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

Jesus, Malcolm X, Mansa Musa

With your first NFL paycheck what would you buy?

Put Money aside for my son’s college tuition and the rest is going into savings for a life after football.
