Q: If you could compare yourself to one current or former NFL player who would it be and why?

Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
David: Check the QB out, see if his arm is strong and can he make hard throws. Then, I like to look at how physical a WR is when they are not getting the ball. I look for hand signals between QBs & WRs, how high a WR is in and out of breaks, how they handle press vs off technique, and any tendencies an offense has based on the down and distance.

Q: What kind of abilities would you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
David: Off the field respectable, humble, and genuine person. No off field issues. On the field “you are going to get a dawg, that’s ready wherever you need em”
Q: What is your final pitch/sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
David: Looking for somebody that’s gonna put in work non stop and be consistent, then I’m your guy. Now Lets get this show on the road.
