Blake Conner: 2020 Pro Prospect Interview
Name: Blake Conner
School: Arkansas Pine Bluff
Q: What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
Far as outside of football I was able to graduate college in December of 2019 with a degree in Agriculture Business. Before my season my goal was to lead our team tackles and I did exactly that.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
I’m a good teammate and when it’s comes to open field tackling I’m great at it, and always willing to get it on the turf. And that I’m also good in coverage as well.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?
When I’m studying film I what focus on to improve my game is trying to stay low, play with good pad level. Also not to have wasted movement. And reading my keys of the opponent seeing what they like to do out of certain formations.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
What separates me from the other prospects is that I truly believe in myself and extremely confident. Also mentally I am strong. I feel like football is more mental than it is physical.
Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?
I’ve been training for about two months now and my pro day is in March. My goal is to continue to train and get better.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
On the field I’m going to be coachable but also be willing to impact the game by making plays. Off the field I’m going to be myself and lead by example.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL or any other pro leagues?
My final pitch is that all I need is one chance/opportunity from one professional team to show that I belong here. Whether it’s NFL, XFL, or CFL. I know I have the skill set and the abilities and qualities to play in the NFL. My plan is to keep God first and keep working.
