NFL Draft Diamonds has been bringing our readers Prospect Interviews over the past 3 years and this year we mixed up the questions and added some fun questions for our readers. Our questions are designed to give our readers a little more insight on the player. We hope to bring you more than 350 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 to the right. Now let’s meet the prospect!!!!
What is your name?
What is your Height/Weight?
What is your position?
Where do you play college football?
Central Connecticut State
Football is about giving back, what is the coolest thing you have done off the field?
I volunteer at local soup kitchens and habitat for humanity projects.
What was the hardest college class you ever had to take?
Where are you from?
New London, CT
Who is your role model, and why?
My older brother is my role model because he was forced to grow up and be a father figure to me at a young age and he paved his own way to college with no guidance
Did you play any other sports growing up?
I played basketball, baseball, and ran track
Did you play any other positions in football?
I was a pretty good hs safety and receiver and I did returns as well.
At your position, what separates you from others?
I have next level speed and I tackle like a safety.
When you are breaking down film, what do you look for?
I look for tendencies and route combinations. For example I try to see what routes guys like to run vs press and off, and at what yardage they like to run them at.
Who was the toughest player you ever faced?
Chris King / Tyler Dube
If you could compare your play to one player in the NFL who would it be and why?
I like to see myself as a Tyrann Mathieu / Jason Verret kind of player because of their size and innate ability to make plays all over the field. They play with an extra chip on their shoulder just like myself
Do you have any pre-game rituals?
On the bus ride to the stadium i like to watch highlights and imagine myself making those plays and then once the bus stops, it’s straight to the tunes
As a small school football player what obstacles do you feel you have
All the obvious obstacles of being overlooked and underestimated because of the size and prestige of your school. I play my same game regardless of my opponent.
What is your biggest strength?
My speed and coverage skills
What is your biggest weakness?
My lack of size
If I were a GM and gave you a second to sell yourself, what would you say?
I’m not looking for a jersey or a roster spot.. I’m looking to make plays and contribute in every way possible. The size of the dogs heart is much more valuable than the size of the actual dog.
Who was your favorite player and/or NFL team growing up?
My favorite player growing up was Troy Polamalu and of course my favorite team is the Pittsburg Steelers.
If you could have dinner with three people dead or alive, who would you choose?
I would have dinner with my mother, my diseased uncle and DJ Khaled
With your first NFL paycheck what would you buy?
I would buy my mother and grandmother a family home
- Who will win the Super Bowl? Minnesota
