Brandon Roe: 2018 Draft Prospect Interview
Name: Brandon Roe
School: Valdosta State University
Q: What were some of your goals heading into your final collegiate season?
Be a better player than I was last year, understand my opponent’s every move, and watch as much film as possible. Also, top my career high in INTS (5) and become a better tackler.
Q: If you could describe your style of play in 3 words, what would they be?
Playmaker, Smart, Ballhawk.
Q: How will you train and prepare this offseason for the draft or other pro opportunities?
I am currently training up in Atlanta. I Have a great trainer who focus’ on the little things.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
When I am watching film, I try to focus on things that the QB and WR does as soon he leaves the huddle. I look at the what types of formations that they run the most, which makes my job easier when trying to identify the play. Also, I look at how the WR runs their routes and how they come out of their breaks.
Q: What separates you from the other players at your position?
Every time that ball is in the air, it is mine. I am a Quarterback on the defensive side. To do that you have to stay in that film room, knowing where the offense wants to go with the ball will make you a better player.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
I lead be example. If I am going hard at practice and doing extra work in that film study, people are going to do the same. I like to compete, hate even the thought of loosing. Loosing is not an option.
Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
I am coming from a D2 school, which means most players will get over looked. All this does is make me grind even harder. If I am blessed enough to get picked up, I promise you will not regret it.
