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.

WR.

At your position, what separates you from others?  

What separates me from others is my physicality, my press coverage in man to man or zone coverages, ball hawking ability and the fact that I can tackle as cornerback  is what separates me 

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

First I’m looking for the WR. stance and his alignment, what he does pre snap each play, his spacing if he is way outside or has a cut split inside, then I see what routes he likes to run and what routes he runs best as well as the speed of the receiver. And I like to know what kind of QB I’m playing against if he’s a lefty or right, if he’s a pocket QB or a scrambler or even both.  

Who was the toughest player you ever faced?

Tevin Jones

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

Darrelle Revis, I don’t mind playing man to man on the best WR. Also don’t mind being on a Island in man to man and I will play any side of the field or even in the slot or on a TE.

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

The loss of my brother in law it has been hard on my family and I but we keep him in our prayers and we know he’s shinning down on us watching over us every step of the way.

Music, Eat, Pray and Talk to myself.

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