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?
What is your Height/Weight?
What is your position?
Where do you play college football?
College of William and Mary
Football is about giving back, what is the coolest thing you have done off the field?
Two mission trips during spring break in Nicaragua in 2013 and 2014
What was the hardest college class you ever had to take?
The Origin of Adam and Eve
Where are you from?
Who is your role model, and why?
My dad. Every time he had the odds stacked against him as a youth and young man in football and off the field, he overcame those obstacles. He got me into football and coached me growing up. He has always been there for me and pushed me to work hard and try to reach my full potential as a student and athlete.
Did you play any other sports growing up?
Basketball, baseball, and track
Did you play any other positions in football?
I came into college as a quarterback. Also played some strong safety in high school
At your position, what separates you from others?
My vision, patience, and intelligence. I’m pretty versatile. I can run, block, and catch.
When you are breaking down film, what do you look for?
Defensive tendencies to identify blitzes, player weaknesses, defensive front slides, how linebacker and defensive backs fill, tackling techniques.
Who was the toughest player you ever faced?
Vellano, defensive tackle from Maryland who currently plays for the New England Patriots or Stephon Robertson, linebacker from JMU
If you could compare your play to one player in the NFL who would it be and why?
Alfred Morris. He’s not the fastest, biggest, or strongest back but he has gray vision and patience. He is more quick then fast like myself and he can run, block, and catch passes out of the backfield.
What was the biggest obstacle in your life you had to overcome, and how did you overcome it?
My dad being diagnosed with cancer or my parents getting divorced. I just trusted in God that everything was happening for a reason and that He was in control. I had to pray a lot and just out my trust in Him.
Go out on the field early and run through the plays by myself, get a 20 minute plyo ethics workout in, listen to gospel music, and relax.
As a small school football player what obstacles do you feel you have to overcome?
Being overlooked because of the competition I face. Also, not having as many nationally revel used games to gain exposure.
What is your biggest strength?
My mind. Football is a very mental game. I always feel that I’m the smartest football player in the room. I put more time into film study than most players.
What is your biggest weakness?
Not being extremely fast or strong. I think I have pretty good speed and size, but not great. Speed is something I will train to improve more after the season.
If I were a GM and gave you a second to sell yourself, what would you say?
I am a humble man of integrity and intelligence. I will work harder than anyone else and always improve my weaknesses. I am willing to help your team in anyway possible to earn a roster spot.
Who was your favorite player and/or NFL team growing up?
Michael Vick and the Atlanta Falcons
If you could have dinner with three people dead or alive, who would you choose?
Not sure. Couldn’t just pick three. I would just say Jesus and all my family and friends.
With your first NFL paycheck what would you buy?
Probably wouldn’t spend it honestly. Maybe just a really nice tailored suit and some small gifts (under 500 a piece) for my parents, grandparents, brother, and girlfriend
