Name: Matthew Berry
Q: What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
I was able to improve my footwork and and overall versatility, which made me a better player for my team. I improved my film study, which greatly impacted how I viewed the game.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
They would say I am a smart, physical, hard-nosed type of player with a high motor that doesn’t stop.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?
I focus on my pre snap keys that can give any indication as to what might be happening. I focus on tendencies and the overall scheme that they have been showing to put myself in the best possible position.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
My hard work ethic and my football IQ is what separates me. There’s a chip on my shoulder every time I step on the field.
Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?
I am currently linked up with a trainer in Northwest Arkansas. I performed at the Ollin ASM pro day in Houston, TX and the pro day at Arkansas.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
I feel that my overall passion for the game will stand out both on and off the field. I pride myself on my work ethic, whether it’s practice, lifting weights and conditioning, watching film, or helping the community off the field. I can produce at receiver, defensive back, and special teams, which I believe can be a game changer.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL or any other pro leagues?
I believe that I can perform at the next level, and my play will back that up. My dedication to the game on and off the field will be a huge game changer. Just because my name doesn’t have the most hype coming out of last season doesn’t mean that I should be counted out. I’m a player that can excel in all three phases of the game. I am versatile and can help wherever I am needed. I believe that versatility goes a long way.
