Bill Belichick, Matthew Slater, Telvin Smith. I would love to sit and talk with Belichick to pick his brain a little. He has and eye for talent and knows how to develop athletes. I’m pretty sure I could convince him for a workout. Matthew Slater because he’s in a position I envision myself in the future. He’s a special teamer who is just a baller and I want to learn from him. Telvin Smith simply because he’s just my favorite player and his energy was contagious, I would love a dinner with him.
