Did you play any other positions in football? 

 

In high school I played Running back, Safety, and Outside linebacker.

 

At your position, what separates you from others? 

 

My route recognition separates me  from the rest of Defensive Backs because I know by alignment and the direction of the route mid-play where the Wide receiver is going. Also my technique and the consistency of my technique separates me from the rest, and as well as my make up speed.

 

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

 

I look for whether the wide receivers are scared of contact at the line of scrimmage and I also look for hand signals between the Quarterback and Wider receiver. I’m able to breakdown my opponent strength and weakness.

 

Who was the toughest player you ever faced? 

 

I haven’t found a player yet who I thought was tough for me to face.

 

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

 

I would have to say Jason Verrett from the San Diego Chargers, because he has quick feet and grate technique at the line of scrimmage in press. Also Tyrann Matthieu because of his passion for the game and as well as his tackling ability.

 

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

 

My biggest obstacle was my College football experience. I missed 2 season due to injury and eligibility issues which messed up my college career. But I overcame it by staying loyal to God and the grind to get to where I’m at today in the NFL Draft process.

 

Do you have any pre-game rituals? 

 

I normally watch a movie like 300 on the night before to get me in an war type mentality. Then on game day I eat an light healthy breakfast and play music like Tupac or Gucci mane in the locker room in my headphones.

 

What is your biggest strength? 

 

My biggest strength is my speed, football IQ, athleticism, sound technique, and unbelievably passion and love for the game of football.

 

What is your biggest weakness? 

 

My biggest weakness in others eyes would be my lack of size for a cornerback.

 

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

 

I would tell them that if they give me a chance to go against there best wide receiver one on one that I will make plays, and prove that I’m a lock down Defensive Back.

 

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

 

My favorite player is Tyrann Mathieu and my favorite team is the Washington Redskins.

 

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

 

Tupac, Biggie, and Deion Sanders

 

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

 

I would buy myself a home.
