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.

The defense’s schemes and tendencies, in what situations (down and distance, offensive and defensive personnel, formation, ect.) will a team play a particular coverage/scheme, and the then the overall and individual details within those coverages and schemes, such as a team’s vulnerability away from their zone blitzes, or a safety that consistently gets overly aggressive on 1st down play action, as well as passing and running concepts that have or haven’t had success against that team in certain situations

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

The ability to instill the belief in my teammates that no matter the opponent, score, or time left on the clock, we will win the game

Overtraining, sometimes I have a really hard time just taking a day off and getting the proper rest and recovery needed, and will train so hard and long that at times it can become counterproductive
