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 coolest thing that I’ve ever done was helping out and volunteering at the local Children’s Hospital, giving out toys to the children and playing tons of fun games.

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

Statistics

Where are you from? 

Atlanta, Georgia

Who is your role model, and why? 

My family, the reason being is because they’re my biggest support system. They motivate me to keep pushing even at my hardest times and help me to become a better man. I live and push through life every day because of them, and by the grace of God.

Did you play any other sports growing up? 

Baseball

Did you play any other positions in football? 

Quarterback and Linebacker

At your position, what separates you from others? 

I am a big back with great explosiveness, speed and agility who can take it the distance. I am a great downhill runner who also has some wiggle. My patience, vision skills and my catching ability are also key factors that separates me from others.

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

When I watch and breakdown film I look for the front of the defensive line, to see if they’re in the under, over, 30 stack, or bear front. I am also looking for the linebacker to see what gaps they’re in to see what blitz they’re running. I also look for the second level to see if they roll, or if they’re on the has or the outside of the hash.

Who was the toughest player you ever faced? 

Myself

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

If I could compare myself to any player it would have to be Marshawn Lynch. I say Marshawn Lynch because he is all about football. That’s it. He’s not too big on social media or interviews. He does his job, which is play football. He shows up and performs.

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

In life we are all faced with obstacles. Some that break you and some that shape you into the person you’re destined to be. My life has been bursting with various obstacles that I’ve had to overcome, that I couldn’t just pick one. However, I would say my biggest challenge would be how hard I am on myself now and again. As well as learning from my mistakes.

Do you have any pre-game rituals? 

Listening to Future and Rich Homie Quan

What is your biggest strength? 

Power, patience, agility, blocking, catching and my vision.

What is your biggest weakness? 

Myself

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

I will have to say that I am the next “Beast Mode”. I take constructive criticism well. I am willing to grow as a football player. I am eager to learn. I am determined to do whatever it takes to become one of the best players. I am hardworking, humbled, and level headed man. I am also willing to play special teams as well as any other position.

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

Marshawn Lynch, Eddie George, and Jerome Bettis, the New England Patriots

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