What makes you a top prospect at your position in the 2022 NFL Draft?

My versatility, being a RB at heart playing WR gives me and edge from a physicality standpoint, and in open field it’s less people to make miss.

At what age were you first interested in the sport of football?

I’ve been interested in football since about 2, I started playing football when I was 3 , I was always a fan of watching my older cousins Shea and Diamonte growing up they really paved the way since I can remember.

What is one thing that NFL teams should know about you?

NFL teams should know that wherever you put me I’m here to work , I have a fear of failure and mediocracy. I want to be the best and I understand that comes with work they should know I’m here to work.

If you could donate to one cause in the world, what would it be?

I would donate To the homeless , being homeless is not right and there’s to much money in the world for anyone to be left with no assistance. Everyone should have a place to stay and be comfortable at night.

What is the best advice you have ever received?

“Don’t give anyone any room to look at you different always present yourself with class”

Who was your childhood hero?

My mom never a day in my life has she given up on me through the darkest of days my NFL dream is really alive for her.

Who is the most underrated teammate in your locker room at your school?

Fayeson Carney, people say he only has speed but that boy is a dog for sure

What is your biggest pet peeve?

Lying , I despise lying just be truthful life will be easier.

Overcoming adversity is what defines character, what was the hardest moment in your life to overcome?

The hardest moment of my life was transferring back to AIC from Millersville, and the NCAA denying my waiver to play due to 3 miles. I was told my reason for transfer wasn’t valid enough to play the season , so I was forced to sit out, I went to every game home and away to support the team through it all, then the next season COVID hit so I’ve just been on my grind waiting for game day to show everyone I’m still HIM.

Tell me something about your school and why it is so special to you?

AIC is family the people I met at school teammates or classmates are second to none, although it’s a small school everyone is really family.

What is your favorite snack food?

Ice cream, I’m addicted to ice cream. Strawberry shortcake to be exact.

What is the funniest part of football?

The funniest part of football to me is scoring touchdowns there’s no feeling like it, when you cross that line you just feel invincible.

If you could sell yourself in one sentence what would you say?

I would say “ Hi my name is Kobe Miranda , I’m here to stay, because I will not be out worked “

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

Deebo Samuel, that RB transitioned to a WR, not scared to catch the ball over the middle, trying to score every-time I touch the ball, bringing physicality to second level defenders.

I feel like I most fit his roll. If you could have dinner with three people dead or alive, who would it be and why?

One person would be LeBron James I want to pick his mind on his mindset, I want to know how we prepares what he does to achieve that level of elite, I also want to tap in to his business side, and see how he moves around as well.
