Brandon Napoleon: 2018 Draft Prospect Interview
Name: Brandon Napoleon
School: Kansas Wesleyan
Q: What were some of your goals heading into your final collegiate season?
Some of my main goals were to play the ball better and get more interceptions. Also, to be a better tackler throughout the season.
Q: If you could describe your style of play in 3 words, what would they be?
Playmaker, Aggressive, and Smart.
Q: How will you train and prepare this offseason for the draft or other pro opportunities?
That right now is still up in the air until I go home in December. I still have one semester left to finish my degree and I’m definitely going to finish my degree. When I go home, my parents and I will sit down and discuss the options.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
I look for the wideout’s tendencies, his first step for when he does his outside releases, and his steps he takes to stem a Defensive Back. I also look at the formation and the plays the offense likes to run on certain downs, as well as their go to guys.
Q: What separates you from the other players at your position?
Football knowledge. Being an effective Quarterback in high school, I know the route concepts from watching film. I kind of know where the Quarterback wants to go with the ball. Also, I play the ball well when it’s in the air. I’m a pure lockdown corner who likes to stick his nose in and hit.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
I’m a leader who leads by example, I will go out and practice hard, work hard, and play hard, and others will follow through my actions. On the field, I’m a competitor, I do not like getting beat and I think that’s what drives me to make me want to be better.
Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
It may look like on the surface, coming from an NAIA school, that the competition is not the same and we all can’t compete, but we have the biggest chips on our shoulder. Any team willing to pick me up, God willing, is going to get a diamond in the rough.
