Name: Davelle Fox
School: Bemidji State/Stephen F. Austin
Q: What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
My goal in my last collegiate season was to give D2 guys hope that they can make it to the NFL and leave the school better than I found it. Those guys really down play themselves and think they can’t make it to the NFL when its not true they have the talent to do so. I wanted to be a leader and leave a impact on my teammates. I also wanted to finish out college ball having played all 4 years.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
They would say Im a humble guy. Kind of like Kawhi Leonard. I let my game talk most of the time. My last school taught me to get out of my shell a little bit so Im a little bit more verbal now still working on it but they’ll tell you how determined to win I am and how unselfish I am.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?
I focus on those who came before me I study deandre hopkins julio jones odell beckham because those are great receivers. They know things that other receivers don’t know yet. I like to be ahead of the game I plan on guarding those guys one days so I focus on them. It made guarding the college guys what I call “Childs Play”.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
I will beat anybody at any position for their spot I am very versatile even if I don’t have the film to show it If they run through one brick wall I’ll run threw two. My competitive edge sets me apart.
Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?
I don’t have an offseason football is 24/7 for me!
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
I bring a story that can move any team at any level. I bring a story that if I told it all of my teammates will lay it all on the line for eachother because they would understand how blessed they are to play the game of football. I bring a story of a young kid who lived in chicago in one of the most dangerous times to live there and made it out. A story of a kid who slept in cars and on floors for his dream. I story of a guy who never quit and still hasnt. If you knew my story you would understand I never will. What do I bring to a team? I bring leadership, integrity, a winning mentality and a guy who will never quit on his team or his organization because he knows how much it means to everybody who supports. The game changes when Im on the field and off I am a game changer and its bigger than football.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL or any other pro leagues?
First of all, I will play anything in the league from holder to offensive line, you will get my full effort.
I have played and started in games all 4 years had at least 1 pass break up in every game I’ve started at cornerback. I have shown I can play against SEC talent which is a power house conference. I have held guys to 1 or no catches. My stats don’t tell what type of player I am. Watch a game. Once I am in I am able to take away the best wide receiver because I have studied enough to know where to get a receiver right where I want them. I have been first team all conference before. Ive won a conference championship before. You can’t find one injury report on me. I am durable. If I am picked you will have a guy who will do anything to win games. Lets eat!
