What makes you a top prospect at your position in the 2022 NFL Draft?
I am a top prospect at my position because I can play many positions at an Elite level. I have the speed, build, and range to play on either side of the ball as well as the mental capacity to hold multiple responsibilities on the field. I have the mentality to dominate at what I set my mind to. I also am capable of dominating where my team best sees me fit. I am not selfish and understand the roles played in order to bring the team great success.
At what age were you first interested in the sport of football?
I have been playing football since I was 5 years old. I guess I would say I have been interested since the day I was able to even carry a football. I think I first knew that I took great interest when I realized how far I could throw a football compared to my peers at such a young age.
What is one thing that NFL teams should know about you?
NFL teams should know that I am a straightforward person. I am able to take constructive criticism and apply it to my life and game. I am also a person who is very self-driven. I am my biggest critic. I hold myself to a standard higher than anyone else could because every detail matters.
If you could donate to one cause in the world, what would it be?
Right now in this day in age, I would love to help the people in Haiti because they have been suffering too long with the natural disasters and the recent loss of their president.
What is the best advice you have ever received?
The biggest piece of advice that I ever got is that just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not growing. Just like a tree, you don’t see the process until it’s finished.
Who was your childhood hero?
My mother. She’s the GOAT
Who is the most underrated teammate in your locker room at your school?
The most underrated teammate I have on my team would be Jermaine Wimpeye. He is physical and plays with intensity both in games and in practices. He is someone I know who trains and plays every down like it’s his last.
What is your biggest pet peeve?
My biggest pet peeve, Questioning my intelligence.
Overcoming adversity is what defines character, what was the hardest moment in your life to overcome?
I feel like I’ve felt at the top of the world before, I’ve also felt like I have been to the bottom of the ocean. I think the hardest thing I have had to overcome Was the entire year I transferred. I felt like I lost everything, no one would want me without film, I felt like my entire life had changed and I had to figure everything out. The entire year went downhill but it taught me how to pick myself up.
Tell me something about your school and why it is so special to you?
My school is a family. My team welcomed me here with open arms and has been nothing but supportive when it has come from my collegiate journey. I found a brotherhood when I first got here and it won’t change.
What is your favorite snack food?
Fruit and chocolate … Not together but either or
What is the best part of football?
I honestly think the best part of football is the physicality. It’s just as fun getting pancakes on the edge as it is scoring touchdowns. It sets a different tone of dominance for a team to remember how physical you were the last time you played them.
If you could sell yourself in one sentence what would you say?
It wouldn’t be a gamble betting on me.
If you could compare your play to one player in the NFL who would it be?
I honestly would not know who to compare my game too because I learn so much from everyone I don’t think my style of play has a particular style set. Maybe Muhammad Sanu Jr but I personally feel like NFL teams would enjoy using me like a Taysom Hill-type where I would be a threat all over the field.
If you could have dinner with three people dead or alive, who would it be and why?
Elijah Muhammad, Derrick Grace II, Chad Ochocinco. All men who have shaped me out to be who I am today.
