Did you play any other positions in football? 

I played Safety in High School

At your position, what separates you from others? 

I think my body control and catching ability are my greatest assets

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

I look for press techniques, tendencies in different coverages, and get an understanding of how my opponent will react to different routes

Who was the toughest player you ever faced? 

The best player I have faced was Ian Williams. He was the best all-around corner I played against in my college career.

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

I would compare myself to Jordy Nelson. He doesn’t have game-breaking speed, but he always ends up behind the defense. He also has great body control and awareness that makes him a great receiver in the NFL.

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

My biggest obstacle is my physical appearance. I am not the biggest, fastest or strongest receiver. I believe that I have the intangibles that other receivers don’t have.

Tyler DubeDo you have any pre-game rituals? 

I don’t have any pre-game rituals. I don’t really believe in that stuff.

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

The biggest obstacle is that there is a belief that the level of competition from FBS to FCS is so different. There can’t be a comparison between the two divisions, however, I believe that there are FCS players that could start for some FBS teams.

What is your biggest strength? 

My biggest strength is my football IQ.

What is your biggest weakness? 

My biggest weakness is my speed

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

I am a versatile player that can play any receiver position. I understand the concepts of entire plays instead of just memorizing them. I will be able to help this team win by putting me in any situation the team needs.

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

My favorite player growing up was Randy Moss

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

I would have dinner with my Grandfather, Steve Jobs, and Michael Jordan

With your first NFL paycheck what would you buy?

I would pay off as much of my student loans as I can.
