Name: Ari Werts
School: East Tennessee State/Georgia State
Q: What goals did you accomplish heading into your final collegiate season?
I became a more physically blocker & got more knowledge of the game.
Q: What would your coaches say about the type of player you are?
They would say I’m the type of player that plays “fast and physically”.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?
When watching film I focus on the little details. The little detailed things in route running , catching & blocking. My receiver coach at East Tennessee State drilled in my head how important the little detailed things are and it has really improved my game.
Q: What separates you from the other players at your position?
My speed, Hands, athleticism & willingness to block.
Q: How will you train and prepare this offseason for the draft or other pro opportunities?
Focusing on running a great 40 yard dash and exceeding in my pro day and once that is accomplished I will just let God work.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
I feel like my personality and my energy would be a couple of strengths that i would bring to a team on & off the field.
Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
Honestly it would be hard finding a hybrid type of player as myself who could split out wide, be attached to the line of scrimmage, & lined up in the slot and just be a mismatch to all positions on the field. Not only that, but also a player who loves special teams and takes pride in what he does.
