Name: Rodney Molette
Q: What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
The goals I set for the season was to gain 1,000 yards rec and being placed in the record book at my school. Leaving a legacy there and making a name for myself. I achieved that by finishing with 2,733 yards, 179 receptions, and 28 TDS placing me second in school history.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
My coaches would say and I quote “he’s a weird different guy, but we love him”. I bring a different presence onto the field and to the game. My teammates would say I’m the lighter to the fuse. Being able to start the game off with explosive plays that sets the tone for the offense switching the momentum to the defense.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?
When I’m watching film, first I watch both offense and defense just to get a feel for the whole team. Then I go back through and watch the secondary focusing on the cornerbacks’ alignment and feet movements and how the safety ball skills come into play. I focus on the way they tackle and if they give any subtle signals for coverage as in “tapping their helmets or hand signals”.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
I’ve been doing this for some time now. When it comes to the game of football I feel I’m already at the elite level from the way I prepare myself throughout the week wanting to go 100% catching during practices and critiquing myself. I accept criticism from anyone and learned to take it and build from it. I carry myself not just as a football player but as a man. I have the mindset that it’s not all about me, but my family and taking care of them is my number one priority.
Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?
Continue working out with my WR coach arena hall of fame Clarence Anderson. I plan to get involved with a few pro gym training companies also who are trained in the profession to assist athlete pursuing a career at the next level.
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 personality no one can deny as if I’ve been on the team for years. The capability to come in and make plays and showcase myself as one of the top players on any team. The ability to be in the community and continuing shedding light on real life situations. As I said, it’s bigger than football, I want to use my platform to change the lives of the less fortunate and kids struggling just like myself.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL or any other pro leagues?
Numbers don’t lie. And I’m a man of my word what I say I will and can accomplish. Everyone wants to be in the league, but I want more, I want to be someone you can come back and lookup years later and have schools and organizations built for the communities. Thank you for your time and the chance to get my name out there, God Bless.
