Q: If you could describe your style of play in 3 words, what would they be?

Josh: Speedy, physical, passionate.

Q: How are you going to train/prepare this offseason in preparation for the draft or other pro opportunities?

Josh: This off season to prepare for any pro opportunity, I will put myself in the best position such as staying in shape, working on my weakness in certain areas, and do the best that I can and what I am capable of.

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

Josh: Lawrence Simmons because we both are fast and physical and I love his style of play.

Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?

Josh: When I am watching film I look for things such as certain formations that teams run certain plays in, Olineman’s stance to tell if its a run or pass.

Q: What separates you from other players at your position?

Josh: What separates me from others is my ability to be physical no matter if I am on the edge or on the inside. I am physical and I will strike first and have control to set myself up to make a play. I ran a 4.8 40 on pro day, but on the film it’s like I am running a 4.4. Me running a 40 and tackling someone or making a play is totally different than you playing smash mouth football.

Q: What kind of abilities would you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?

Josh: My abilities of being a play maker for a team will stand out more and not just on defense. I want to play special teams, I love special teams. Most guys come in and want to be the man, I just want to set myself up for success to contribute on a team so we can win. I am a role model off the field and make sure that me and everyone else is safe, so me as a player and others will not cause a distraction for the team.

Q: What is your final pitch/sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?

Josh: I have the abilities and the dedication to sell myself to a pro team. At any means I will make sure I get the job done no matter what it is. All I need is an opportunity and I will not disappoint.
