Q: If you could compare yourself to one current or former NFL player who would it be and why?
Tosin: If I could compare myself to any NFL player it would be Khalil Mack because of the way he uses his length, speed, and power to rush the passer and stop the run.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
Tosin: When studying film the first thing I look at is tendencies from the offensive line in order to gain an advantage, whether it is jumping the snap count, run/pass keys, or figuring out which pass rush moves they have problems defending. I also look at formations in order to get an idea of which plays to expect.
Q: What separates you from other players at your position?
Tosin: What separates me from other players at my position is my hard working mentality, length, strength, speed, and playmaking ability. I can rush the passer, set the edge in the run, and drop into coverage.
Q: What kind of abilities would you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
Tosin: Some abilities I would bring to a team on and off the field are my leadership and hard working mentality. I was voted a team captain all 4 years at Mercer and I believe that leadership is a strong quality of mine. I also believe I am an extremely hard worker. When I came to Mercer I was 190 pounds, but worked hard in the weight room and on the field and gained over 50 pounds of muscle during my 5 years here.
Q: What is your final pitch/sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
Tosin: I’m a hard working player that is willing to do whatever it takes to help his team win. Besides my football abilities, I will bring high character and leadership to a team. Whether it is on defense or special teams, I will always give my all.
