Dion Ray: 2020 Pro Prospect Interview
Name: Dion Ray
School: Nicholls State
Q: What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
I set a goal to win the conference championship and to be an impact player for my new team since I was a transfer coming in. I was the offensive newcomer of the year for the Colonels this past season.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
I would say my coaches and teammates say that I am a very smart player and a hard worker that would do whatever it takes for my team to win.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?
I’m a big film guy so when I’m studying film I look at the tendencies that certain players give away. I look at the main coverages a defense could play and the techniques of the corners so I could see how to exploit my matchups.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
What separates me from the other pro prospects at my position is that I have experience playing quarterback in college so I understand the coverages being thrown at me. Also my speed and explosiveness makes me a scoring threat anytime I touch the ball.
Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?
My offseason plan is to train at Opt South with Lance Lacoste and to get stronger and faster for my pro day.
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 the ability to stretch the defense out as a deep threat as a receiver and I could also be used on special teams as a kick or punt returner.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL or any other pro leagues?
You should take a chance on me because I am a very versatile football player that could be used anywhere on an offense . I am a hard worker and would do anything to land on a roster.
