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.

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

For the past year I have worked part-time at Mid-Altantic youth service; as a youth supervisor and a mentor to the youth. A life changing job, and an eye opener to how much the youth need us to show them the way when they miss a step or two.

In high school I played LT, RT, TE, and DT of course.

My motor, the ability never give up on the play. Being able to take the ball away when meeting the ball carrier. Smart, coachable instinctual with violent hands.

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

I look at the whole offensive line, size and weight, than I look for running and passing tendencies, from there it’s weaknesses as a pass blocker and run blocker, the QB tendencies as far as hot routes and changing the plays. And finally where do they want to go to with the ball and how that person protects the ball.
