Trevante Long: 2018 Draft Prospect Interview
Name: Trevante Long
School: Shaw University
Position: Wide Receiver
Q: What were some of your goals heading into your final collegiate season?
I wanted to break the rest of the all time records at my school and be an All-American.
Q: If you could describe your style of play in 3 words, what would they be?
Physical, Consistent, Smooth.
Q: How will you train and prepare this offseason for the draft or other pro opportunities?
I have a great trainer, Wayne Hall, here at school so he will be helping me get ready for the draft.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
Mostly what a Defensive Back does, how fast he opens his hips, if he’s physical, if he’s better in man or zone, if he’s patient or fast to get out. Things of that nature when studying film.
Q: What separates you from the other players at your position?
I think what separates me is I have both size and quickness, which most big Receivers don’t have both of.
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 pure hands to the receiving core, hard work traits, and am a team guy. I put the team first before my own individual goals.
Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
To all the NFL and CFL teams, you’re getting a diamond in the rough who’s been underrated his whole life, so he’s always ready to work and prove people wrong.
