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.

What is your name? 

My name is Andrew Wysocki but everyone calls me Drew

What is your Height/Weight? 

Height is 6ft 2 inches and I weigh 240 lbs.

What is your position? 

My position is Tight end/Fullback.

Where do you play college football? 

I recently finished my college career at Stevenson University.

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

The coolest thing I did off of the field was working Special Olympics for the past couple years and visit Kennedy Krieger Children’s hospital in Baltimore.

What was the hardest college class you ever had to take?

The hardest college class I ever had was accounting.

Where are you from? 

I am originally from Southern California but my father is in the military. We have had to move around living in Memphis, Tennessee and Leonardtown, Maryland also.

Who is your role model, and why? 

My role model other than my parents would be Jordan Campbell. He’s a current NFL free agent but has been on a few different NFL teams. He also owns his own training facility in California. He is very motivating and shows you everyday what it means to truly work as hard as you possibly can towards your dreams. No matter what those dreams may be.

Did you play any other sports growing up? 

Other sports I played growing up were baseball and basketball

Did you play any other positions in football? 

I was recruited to Stevenson as a Quarterback. I played the position my entire life, once I came to Stevenson they switched me to tight end first day on campus.

At your position, what separates you from others? 

What separates me from others at my position is my versatility. I work hard at every aspect of the position. I can be used in the pass game as well as a lead blocker when needed.

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

When breaking down film I look for other players tendencies. I always look to see how they’ll play certain routes, run plays, how they’ll line up to our different formations or what the defense will do in different situations.

Who was the toughest player you ever faced? 

The toughest player I ever played against was a defensive end from Albright my sophomore year. I can’t recall his name but he was pretty good.

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

If I could compare myself to one player in the NFL it would be Charles Clay, because we are similar in size for the position. Also we are both able to line up in different spots on the field and run very similar routes.

stevenson 1What was the biggest obstacle in your life you had to overcome, and how did you overcome it? 

The biggest obstacle I had in my life was the passing of my grandmother. She was the most loving, caring and courageous person I ever knew. She battled with breast cancer for 22 years. I always remembered her having to wear wigs and how much joy that brought to her being able to still have hair because her treatment caused hair loss. So after her funeral my sophomore year I decided I wanted to grow my hair out until my college career was over and donate my hair to a wig foundation. This helped me cope with the loss of her knowing how proud she would be that I was growing my hair out for someone else going through a whole lot more.

Do you have any pre-game rituals? 

My pre game rituals would always be to get out on the field early and run through all my routes. Also always said a prayer before running out of our tunnel.

What is your biggest strength? 

My biggest strength is I am a smart player, I have great catching abilities, I can block and I feel I’m a very athletic player.

What is your biggest weakness? 

My biggest weakness I feel is I’m still somewhat new to the position and can always keep learning more about tight end.

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

If you were a GM I would sell myself by saying… I can play multiple positions on offense, I can contribute to the special teams if needed. I’m not an off the field liability. I can help this team win whatever way I am needed, if just given the chance. I love this game and would do everything in my power to make sure I played it with this organization for years to come.

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

My favorite team is the New York Giants and my favorite player currently for them is Will Tye.

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

If I could have dinner with three people it would be Marshawn Lynch, Derek Jeter and Michael Jordan.

What will be the first big item you buy once you are in the NFL?

The first big item I would buy once in the NFL will most definitely be something for my parents. To show them how much I appreciate all they have done for me and helping me get to this point.

Rapid Answers:
