Julius Wingate: 2019 Draft Prospect Interview

Name: Julius Wingate
School: Stony Brook
Position: WR
Height: 6’4″
Weight: 220

Q: What goals did you accomplish heading into your final collegiate season?

I helped my team win football games all the while proving I’m an NFL caliber player.

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

My past coaches would say I’m a talented receiver that worked hard on the field and in the weight room, with my better days still ahead of me.

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

When focusing on myself I tend to see where I made mistakes and look to see where I can fix them. When focusing on a defense I tend to look at tendencies that’ll tell me a story. The alignments and depths of the secondary as well as their leverage and body languages can help you out a lot as a receiver.

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

I’m a tall big body receiver that likes to be physical but can also run the entire route tree + double moves. I will high point the ball when given an opportunity. I like to consider myself the full package.

Q: How will you train and prepare this offseason for the draft or other pro opportunities?

I’ve trained and took care of my body for 3 months at Paroblic performance and rehab to have me prepared for my pro day. Since then I’ve been staying in shape by going to The Fit Factory in Englewood for workouts and cardio and meeting up with my receiver coach/ mentor Drew Lieberman (@TheSidelineHustle) for all football related work.

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

I’m as humble as they come with a great mindset and personality to back it up. I’ll bring a hard working attitude to an organization while only receiving good views and news off the field.

Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?

If you’re looking for a true needle in the haystack who is coachable, accountable, hard working, and low maintenance then look no further. A durable receiver that can block, run the route tree, create separation, catch the ball and make plays on offense while also willing to be a great special teams player as well.
