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.

Basketball, Baseball and Soccer
Did you play any other positions in football?
Defensive tackle/ nose guard in high school
At your position, what separates you from others?
I think the skill that separates me from others is my footwork, for an offensive lineman I have very fast footwork and also my pulls off the line are very good
When you are breaking down film, what do you look for?
Depends on what kind of defense is being played but generally speaking I look for giveaways such as linebackers or safeties cheating to indicate where pressure/blitz might be coming from to lineman stunts and shading
Who was the toughest player you ever faced?
#8 from Widener….very good player
If you could compare your play to one player in the NFL who would it be and why?
Marshall Yanda because he’s an athletic big man who can play virtually any position on the OL which I have had to do numerous times in my career and is as tough as they come

It was a rough year but it ultimately made me really appreciate not only football but life in general and I’m beyond thankful I was given the opportunity to play again

Getting noticed is difficult when you’re at a small school especially at the D3 level

Work ethic, footwork, the mindset I play with
What is your biggest weakness?
I’ll let my opponents decide that question for me

My favorite player was without question Ray Lewis and my favorite team is the Baltimore Ravens
If you could have dinner with three people dead or alive, who would you choose?
Kobe Bryant, Ray Lewis, Einstein
With your first NFL paycheck what would you buy?
Wouldn’t buy anything, I’d start trying to pay off my student debt I can play any position on the OL and will do whatever it takes to win and be successful
