Q: If you could describe your style of play in 3 words, what would they be?
My style of my is intelligent, communicative, and versatile.
Q: How will you train and prepare this offseason for the draft or other pro opportunities?
I’ve been working all offseason to improve on my weakness physically and put myself in the best position to move forward.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
When I watch film, I look for tendencies in offensive schemes and the players. I like to understand what the offense likes to do philosophy first. Then I look for whatever keys I can find in the players. It could be alignments, stances, formations, and so on. Every team is different, I just try to find out as much as I can from the film.
Q: What separates you from the other players at your position?
I believe my intelligence, versatility, and playmaking separates me from others. I’ve always been a smart player who pays attention to every detail and I have experience playing 4 different positions in the secondary.
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 lot to a team. Everywhere I’ve gone, I’ve been a quick learner, picking up on different schemes. I’ve made plays at every level on the football field. I’ve shown range playing the center field and half field safety as well as in the box. Being consistent is something I pride myself on.
Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
My sell would be that I’m a consistent hard worker on and off the field that has always improved with experience. I’m an experienced player that has played multiple positions.
