Name: Moses Marshall IV
School: Alabama State
Q: What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
One goal I set for myself was just to have fun each and everyday. A lot of times when we get so deep into collegiate sports we forgot the reason why we started playing. Yes we want the money, yea our family situations could change from playing this game, but if I’m not having fun there is no reason for me to be doing it any more.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
My coaches and teammates would say I’m unselfish. I didn’t catch as many passes as I would’ve liked to, but one thing that I always made sure I did was block my hardest every play because that comes with the job.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
The thing that separates me from other pro prospects is the fight and drive I had to have to make it this far. I went to 4 different colleges. A kid who had plenty D1 offers in high school and couldn’t go because of grades. To get through a non scholarship junior college, full of nights where I literally hadn’t ate a thing all day. It still made sure I got some work in. Turn all of that around, get a chance to play at my dream school Kansas, and then end my career at a schools down city full of history. Experiences that made me who I am today.
Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?
My plan is to focus more on my core strength. It’s not about being the biggest any more. It’s about being comfortable. And being as strong as you can be throughout your entire body. Shape myself back into that hybrid player I visioned myself being.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
I bring a matchup problem. I can lineup anywhere on the football field and be effective. My route running is second to none. It’s something that I always worked on because that’s one of the most under-appreciated abilities. Everyone wants speed everyone wants size. I don’t care how fast you are, if I can lineup and make you think I’m going a way I’m not going and get open, your speed size or strength is not valuable.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL or any other pro leagues?
My final pitch is not a pitch. It’s a statement. I’m the best man for the job and if you are looking for someone to come and help your football team it’s me. We are talking about a player who legit got everything out the mud. It’s no substitute for hardwork.
