Name: Chris Sanders-McCollum
College: Tennessee State
Position: Wide Receiver
Q: If you could describe your style of play in 3 words, what would they be?
Chris: Precise, unpredictable, and skillful.
Q: How are you going to train/prepare this offseason in preparation for the draft or other pro opportunities?
Chris: I’ve just been attacking every workout and being consistent with it because I have nothing to lose. I just been working on consistency on the field and just working on the things that I lack in my game, so when I get that opportunity I can show I’m a well rounded player.
Q: If you could compare yourself to one current or former NFL player who would it be and why?
Chris: I would probably say Calvin Johnson or Brandon Marshall. I feel like we have similar body types and I play similar to them. Calvin is a real laid back kind of guy and I am too. Brandon isn’t afraid to speak how he feels when it’s needed so I feel I can relate there. I just can see myself being the kind of player they are at the next level if or when I get that opportunity at the pro level.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
Chris: I really watch the technique of the corners, safeties, or linebackers that may be covering me. I watch for their favorite moves, see what they like to do, how aggressive they are, or how they are in they are when we are running the ball. I really just look for what I can expose and use to my advantage.
Q: What separates you from other players at your position?
Chris: I’d say my work ethic. I’m always trying to work on something or improve something even if others may think I’m good at it. Just consistently working so that nobody else can say I’m lacking or have a reason to doubt me.
Q: What kind of abilities would you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
Chris: Leadership. I just like to lead by example and not to let my brother/teammate settle for less. If I’m not doing my best at the time, I’m not going to stop leading. I’m going to continue to show those that are willing to follow the right way and help them progress because at the end of the day it’s a team effort and you can’t win being an individual.
Q: What is your final pitch/sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
Chris: If you’re reading this I want you to know if you decide to choose me to be apart of your organization, you’ll be getting a quality player that’s a competitor. I never really had much in life and just want that opportunity to showcase what I can bring to your team on and off the field.
