Name: Tobias Cook
School: McKendree University
Position: Defensive End/Outside Linebacker/Tight End
Q: What were some of your goals heading into your final collegiate season?
I wanted to be known as a playmaker. Make this hard on every quarterback I play. Play whatever position I need to play for us to get the victory. Become a better leader.
Q: If you could describe your style of play in 3 words, what would they be?
Aggressive, Passion, Playmaker.
Q: How will you train and prepare this offseason for the draft or other pro opportunities?
I will really work on increasing my speed.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
First, I’ll watch the whole game to see what type of offense the opposing team runs. Then, I look at tendencies of the Offensive Lineman that will give up the play. I look at down and distance. Certain teams only run certain type of plays on each down.
Q: What separates you from the other players at your position?
My passion I play with and my play making ability.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
Like I have been saying, playing with passion is what got me here and that has created opportunities for me to make plays. I will bring this passion and leadership with me where I go.
Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
I will play whatever you need, I just need an opportunity to prove myself. I know coming from a Division 2 school will get me overlooked and that what makes me grind harder. I have always been the underdog.
