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

A goal that I set this season and accomplished was to just give 100% on everything I did. l treated everyday like it was my last day playing the game of football. I also feel like perfecting my craft everyday and setting a good example on how to come ready to work everyday. The other personal goals I set just came with me being disciplined and staying consistent.

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

My coaches and teammates could say that I come to work everyday ready to compete and get better. I’m willing to get the extra reps on scout if the team needs me too even though I was starting. My teammates can say that I lead by example not really that vocal but when I see improvement then I give them advice on what they could do better and help improve their game in different ways. The coaches could say I am very competitive and humble.

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

When I study film, I focus on the small things that I could improve on and try to fix them. I think film sessions are very important. Watching film would help improve your knowledge of the game. Watching coverages on the opposing defense help me learn the different coverage and helped me read them easily when I’m on the field. I also use film as a way to learn my opponent, I watch every little detail of the opponent to get a good picture on how he would play me in a game situation.

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

Things that separate me from other pro prospects is my discipline, and work ethic. I’m very self driven about getting better everyday and very discipline in staying consistent on and off the field. I take pride in correcting my own mistakes by watching film and accepting constructive criticism from my coaching staff. I understand my role as a player and the role of the coach. I try to work harder than everyone else’s because talent will only take you so far you have an eat or be eaten type of mind set to be great.

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

My offseason will consist of me working on my footwork, speed, gaining more weight, and perfecting my routes. Also I would be working on mastering my route running, looking over different coverages correcting all the fundamentals errors and really putting my body in a position to be showcased.

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

Strengths and abilities that I will bring to my team on the field is my speed, exclusiveness getting yards after the catch and the ability to figure out and recognize different coverages that I’ve seen in a film session. Off the field, my relationships with teammates and coaches would be good because I’m a person that wants to build a relationship with the people that are working towards the same goals as me.

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

My final pitch to the NFL or any pro league is I am looking for an opportunity to display my talent on the field and play at the next level. I want to be apart of an organization that feels like family. My talent will speak for itself. I’m ready to contribute to the team in whatever capacity the coaching staff sees fit. I’m humble, coachable and totally dedicated to staying disciplined mental, physically, and spiritually on and off of the field.
