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.

My relentless Effort, desire to be great and never being satisfied is what separates me from other.
When you are breaking down film, what do you look for?
I examine the defense as a whole, then look at the coverage. From there I take notice in the safeties and corners tendencies, alignment, stance how they play in certain coverages. I see if they are aggressive, patient, heavy run fitters, ball hawks and if they can tackle in open space.
Who was the toughest player you ever faced?

Face timing my children Annaley & Beckham, also looking at their pictures
As a small school football player what obstacles do you feel you have to overcome?
The obstacles I have to overcome is proving to everyone that I am good enough to play in the league. I know for a fact that I can do it, but because we do not face the level of competition other guys at bigger schools do, we are constantly overlooked and have to push ourselves even harder to get where we want to be.
What is your biggest strength?
What is your biggest weakness?
Understanding the game in terms of the next level. It is a completely different ball game in the NFL. There is nothing that can prepare you for it until you experience it for yourself
If I were a GM and gave you a second to sell yourself, what would you say?
I may not be the biggest, fastest nor the strongest player but my willingness to do what others will not is what separates me from the pack.

If you were to invest in me, you would get everything I had each and every day.
