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.

Jeremy Johnson

What is your Height/Weight?

6″1 205

What is your position?


Where do you play college football?

University of Charleston

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

All of my psychology classes lol

Silsbee, Texas

Who is your role model, and why?

My Father because he sacrificed so much to take care of my family and never complained about anything. During the process of being a father he managed to carry a positive image as a man no matter what problem came his way. I will forever work to set an example for my kids like my father did for my family.

Did you play any other sports growing up?

Basketball and track

Did you play any other positions in football?

WR, RB ,CB, PR, and KR

At your position, what separates you from others?

I make other players better and when the game is on the line I’ll make a play with my legs or arm like its second nature. I’m just built like that and I’ll do anything it takes to win.

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

Defensive coverages versus different offensive formations and most of all their tendencies. I’m watching what they like to run in certain situations and mismatches.

Who was the toughest player you ever faced?

Bruce Irvin my freshman year at WVU in practice . He is fast off the edge. He was the first player that actually made hit the turbo button on a scramble lol.

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

I would say my talent is similar to Michael Vick .

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

Adjusting to the real world when I stopped playing football two years ago. I got closer to God and humbled myself. Once I started to be thankful for the little things then I started to appreciate the job hunting process and just having enough health to go back and forth to interviews. Some people don’t get an opportunity to have an interview.

Do you have any pre-game rituals?

Yea, you will have to see it when I’m on TV, lol

Jeremy JohnsonWhat is your biggest strength?

My poise and athletic ability

What is your biggest weakness?

That’s up to you to find out.

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

I will bring a winning mentality to the team that will be contagious throughout the whole program. I will give maximum effort to keep my job as a leader and a QB so I can help give my team a greater chance of winning the Super Bowl every year….because that is all I care about.

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

Sean Taylor, Washington Redskins

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

My grandfather Billy Mac that I never got a chance to meet, my aunt Nene that died before I started playing regulation sports, and my cousin Pooky that passed so I can see his face when I’m playing against him with myself on Madden. Lol

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

Honestly, recovery equipment to keep my body healthy. Can’t recover can’t practice, can’t practice can’t play, can’t play can’t win and that’s all I want to do is win.
