Name: Jean Constant
School: Stony Brook
Q: What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
My goal this season was to prove that I am capable of returning punts as well as being a more polished receiver. I believe that was two of the things that scouts would question me the most about so going into the season I made sure I focused on that part of my game.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
I believe they would say I’m a guy that really loves and has a passion for football. A guy that’s willing to sacrifice and block out any distractions in order to become a better student of the game. And last my work ethic, which I believe is my best trait. I’m always trying to find ways to get better whether that’s staying after practice for extra reps or watching game/practice film.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?
As a WR, when I’m watching film I mainly focus on my three dribbles which is (alignment/ assignment/and how do I fit into the play).
First, I’m always looking to see if I put myself in the best position to help teammates and myself get open. Second, did I execute my rep. And last, did I stay into the fundamental foundation of that particular play or did I step outside of what we were trying to accomplish as an offense. I use the same three dribble strategy on special-teams.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
During the course of a football game, there are five to six plays that changes or determines the outcome of a football game.
I’m capable of making one of these plays each time I touch the rock whether it’s at WR or especially back deep on special teams.
Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?
For the pass six weeks, I’ve been working out at FTX and Ronnie Lane Fitness getting ready for my pro day. Working on the 40 yard dash which is very key for an opportunity along with other drills like pro agility and getting stronger in the weight room.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
The strengths and abilities I carry would be my return ability which can help a team win games. Another strength would be my overall maturity.
Playing five years of collegiate football, having three different head coaches, three different offensive systems and still being able to have the career I had speaks to the level of understanding of the game as well as the business side of football.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL or any other pro leagues?
If you’re in the market for a return specialist don’t look anywhere else I’m your guy. 2x All-America kick returner five career returns can instantly help a team improve on teams. I am ready for an opportunity to showcase my talent at the next level. Take the chance!
