Justin Sumpter: 2019 Draft Prospect Interview

Name: Justin Sumpter
School: Kennesaw State
Position: WR
Height: 6’2″
Weight: 225

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

Personally being first team all conference again even though I missed 3 games.

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

Very unselfish, hard working, does what it ever it takes for the team to win type player.

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

I like to go back and look at the mistakes I made, whether it was reading an assignment or running a route to the depth I was supposed to. It might come a time in a situation where something like that could be a turning point in a game.

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

I don’t need the ball in my hands to make an impact on the game. Making a key block that leads to a TD is just as big as catching one. 6 points is 6 points no matter how it gets up there and if that means me knocking down 2 people to lead to it, it’s pretty much the same as taking it in myself.

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

Right now I’m training at Boost performance in Nashville, Tennessee getting ready for my pro day. My 2 biggest focuses are my 40 and my route running ability.

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

Me being a block heavy guy, will for sure, it’s not something a lot of WR do but it helps the team out and that’s what I’m all about. I don’t need the stats I like the rings more. Im not being on talking so I try to lead by example so on the field trying to do things the right way and off the field just stay out of situations that would negatively reflect me or the team.

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

I’m a very quick learner, can adapt to any type of offense and willing to play TE too if need be. My film speaks for itself for big play ability and crunch time plays.
