Q: What goals did you accomplish heading into your final collegiate season?

Being the leader that I know I am and just making sure I gave it my all every game with no regrets.

Q: What would your coaches say about the type of player you are?

They would say I am a hard working, passionate player about the game. They would say that I am competitive and coachable.

Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?

I look for the weakness in a defense or defenders that I know will be guarding me throughout the game. Knowing where the weak spots in a defense or defender will help me get open more in the passing game. I look for blitz and stunt keys or tendencies also because that is a big part of my blocking schemes.

Q: What separates you from the other players at your position?

My overall athletic ability. The way I can move for my size is God given. I run routes, get in and out of breaks and catch like a receiver. My jumping ability and body control is good too.

Q: How will you train and prepare this offseason for the draft or other pro opportunities?

I have been training hard with former NFL player Dreamius Smith working on position drills, toning up and improving my skills and athleticism for the testing drills.

Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?

My leadership, Im very Vocal and always willing to help. I’m always willing to put in work and learn new things.

Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?

If a team drafts or signs me they will be getting a player that will work harder than anyone especially at his position. They will get a versatile TE that can put his hand in the ground or flex out to any receiver position and be dominant at any spot. My speed, route running, hands, concentration, and ability to make big plays will help any team! They won’t make a mistake in adding me to their roster. I’m kind of like a modern day Vernon Davis.
