Q: What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?

The only goal I had for this season was to win a national championship with my team. We fell short of that goal but it was a great experience competing for one with the group of guys that we had.

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

They would say that I am a great leader. I bring a great energy to every practice, workout, and game and it brings out the best in myself and my teammates. I believe that I will out work anybody and do whatever it takes to make a team better.

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

If I am preparing for an opponent, I focus on small tells in an offense like back depth and lineman stance to get a good read on what they are running so I can put myself and my teammates in the best possible position. I also watch a ton of film on NFL players to try and add their style and moves into my game to make me a better player.

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

I believe that my work ethic separates me from other prospects. I strive to be a better football player and athlete everyday to ensure that I separate myself from others.

Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?

I am going to be doing my pre-draft training with Kerry Neal at WIN Performance.

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

I will bring a tireless work ethic and great energy. I also have a high football IQ and I am able to play well in multiple positions on a defense.

Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL or any other pro leagues?

No matter what team I end up on, I am going to spend everyday making myself a better player and doing whatever it takes to make our team better.
