What makes you a top prospect at your position in the 2022 NFL Draft?
My versatility definitely sets me apart, I can impact the game in a multitude of ways. I have played every single position in the secondary so there is many ways defensive coordinators will be able to use me. With what offenses are trying to do in today’s game, I understand that there is high value in a multiple skillset like mine. Then I would also say that my football intelligence makes me top prospect because my understanding of offenses and how to operate within a scheme allow me to play faster than most. I know how to watch and dissect film and I dedicate myself to preparation in order to maximize my performances. Lastly I would say that the level of physicality and aggression I play with is something that stands out about my game.
At what age were you first interested in the sport of football?
Probably around 3 years old when I got a football for my birthday.
What is one thing that NFL teams should know about you?
I am as reliable as it gets, I lead by example, I do the right thing day in day out and that leads to great consistency in my play and leadership. I show up everyday ready to work and dedicate myself to my craft, which gives me unwavering confidence in what I will do on Sundays.
If you could donate to one cause in the world, what would it be?
As a proud Haitian, I know that there are many issues currently in Haiti. More than a third of the country’s population faces food insecurity and many children suffer from severe malnutrition. I plan on helping these families when I have the financial means.
What is the best advice you have ever received?
Always bet on yourself.
Who was your childhood hero?
My mother is my hero to this day, I will always look up to her. No matter the obstacles she has always provided for us and giving her the world is a priority for me.
Who is the most underrated teammate in your locker room at your school?
I think we have a lot of guys who are underrated so it’s hard to pinpoint one, I’m just excited to see them work in the fall.
What is your biggest pet peeve?
Lazy and unmotivated people
Overcoming adversity is what defines character, what was the hardest moment in your life to overcome?
Probably the situation with my father leaving my family when I was 13. The circumstances in the years prior and after definitely forced me to grow up way faster than most kids but it made me the man I am today because I had to step up and take care of my family, something I will never stop doing.
Tell me something about your school and why it is so special to you?
We have special people in that building and the relationships built are what makes the place and the game of football so special.
What is your favorite snack food?
What is the funnest part of football?
Making a big play at a crucial time for your team, that’s the moments I live for.
If you could sell yourself in one sentence what would you say?
I am a sure pick, there is no risk in picking me, I’m versatile, I’m a leader, I’m smart, I’m trustworthy, and my upside is limitless as I feel like I’m only taping into my potential.
If you could compare your play to one player in the NFL who would it be?
If you could have dinner with three people dead or alive, who would it be and why?
Kobe Bryant because I love the approach he had on life, obviously he left us too soon and there’s many things I would like to talk about with him. Ed Reed because he is the best safety to ever play the game in my opinion so I would love to pick his brain. And then Shannon Sharpe because he’s so entertaining and I just know we’d be in for some great laughs with him present.
