Q: If you could describe your style of play in 3 words, what would they be?
Three words to describe my style are energetic, reliable, and resilient.
Q: How will you train and prepare this offseason for the draft or other pro opportunities?
How I have been training so far is by working on my explosion, trying to get faster and working on how quickly I can transition in and out of my breaks at the top of my routes.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
When I watch film, I look for strengths and weakness of the defense. Then, I evaluate the secondary to see who’s the best player and who is the weakest player. I try to watch for their tendencies as to what coverage they are in, what gives away what coverage they are in, and I began to think what in their technique can I use against them to win.
Q: What separates you from the other players at your position?
I believe what separates me is my will to block for the run. I take pride into that because I know how important it is lay it on the line for your brothers.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
The strengths and abilities I would be able to bring to any team would be bringing a positive attitude into the atmosphere. I also look out for other guys as if we are family. I tend to be the hype man and I just enjoy bringing positive vibes to teams. I also like to do the jobs most people don’t like to do. I just want to play and help any team out anyway that I can.
Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
If I were to get picked up by any team, they would have a do whatever it takes to make the team successful type of guy. I’m not selfish, I’m selfless and willing to perform at a high level everyday for common goals that any team would have.
