Kobe Miranda: 2022 Pro Prospect Interview
Name: Kobe Miranda
School: American International College
What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
I wanted to be dominant at a new position, after 20 years of playing RB, I wanted to showcase I was versatile and could bring more to the game.
Q: How do you think you took advantage of the extra year of eligibility to increase your chances of going pro?
The extra year allowed me to focus more on becoming an actual wideout and not just a playmaker, the work at becoming an elite wideout showed.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
I believe my coaches and teammates would say I’m a very emotional leader, they would say I’m a savage and will do anything to get the team what it needs. Ultimately I believe they would say more about my character than my style of play.
Q: When you are studying film, what are the things you focus on to improve your game?
While studying film, I watch my footwork, patience within routes and the overall execution. I like to watch each play more than once to really dissect and take all that I can from it.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
What separates me from the rest of the WR in my draft class is, I’m not just a WR, I’m a RB when the ball gets in my hands, I embrace contact and catching in traffic. When it comes to me I like to tell people given the chance I will make a play , and I try to always make the smartest play while doing so.
Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?
My off-season plan is to return to ATL and continue training with Route King (Hilton Alexander) and Will lee at dash performance also at Zilla Training in Suwannee. Each of these individuals will have a very crucial part in my preparation.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
What I will bring to any team is from day one a team player, natural born leader and a playmaker, someone who truly loves the game and loves the grind even more, each and everyday whatever team I land with they’ll get the same person everyday.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL and any other pro leagues?
To whatever team takes a shot on me I can play multiple positions on the offense, I will never have to bad plays in a row and will capitalize on any opportunity given to me no matter what the role or position. I just hope they take a chance on a small school guy that has the ability to make some big time plays I will always do whatever the team needs.
