Name: Dior Johnson
School: Murray State
Q: What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
Striving out to reach goals that I set for myself has always been important. Staying close with my faith & talking with the man above whether things went the way I wanted or not. Leading by example on & off the field not only for myself but also for my teammates and anyone who had their eyes on me. Last, I made it a priority to make sure I stood out on film and be consistent as possible.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
That I am a relentless hard worker, humble, coachable and someone who is not scared to take initiative to lead on the field.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?
Playing safety I always would focus on fixing the angles that I took to the ball, reading guard/tackle so I know where to be for run fits, the way I defeat blockers, and learning the tendencies of my opponent.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
That I’m the most versatile safety that can play down in the box, cover well whether it’s off or press man, consider myself to be a sure tackler, and a playmaker who doesn’t shy away from big moments.
Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?
My training will be done at Total Sports Performance in Michigan all the way up until my pro day which is on March 18th at Murray State.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
Versatility in different positions on the field, and someone who is about their business and taking each opportunity given as seriously as possible off the field.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL or any other pro leagues?
My collegiate journey has been a up and down and up again type experience. I’ve been faced with some obstacles in life in which I thought I wouldn’t be able to come back from. Getting that one opportunity to prove myself and prove others wrong has became something I’ve always prepared for. My film will speak for itself and people will vouch on the type of personality and characteristics I have. I just ask that one organization to evaluate me and let me prove myself.
