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.

Yes DB in high school

At your position, what separates you from others? 

I’m elusive, versatile and I feel I can make a play anytime I touch the ball, and even though they say I’m small, their right, but I play BIG !

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

First I look at coverage, because that’s what we’re going to be playing against, then I do my own dissecting of the DB… does he get out of his breaks, do he have good hips, what arm does he throw in man coverage, stuff like that.

Who was the toughest player you ever faced? 

The toughest person I played against was De’Anthony Thomas and you see where he is now.

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

A lot people say Desean Jackson, I watched him a lot and seen what he did and said I can do that to and I just so happen to wear number 10 also.

Do you have any pre-game rituals? 

I pray and thank God for letting me play this game !!!

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

I feel as if I’m the underdog, due to the level of school I’m at and my height and size. I’m overlooked, but feel I have the ability to compete !

What is your biggest strength? 

I would say I’m a quick learner, I listen well. I can make plays with the ball in my hand and I work hard. I love the game!

What is your biggest weakness? 

My size difference compared to other players, but I don’t duck anything.

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

Vikings when Randy Moss was playing. I probably would have thrown it to him every play, up top.

God, Lauren London, Lil Wayne

Buy my Mom a house !
