Name: Brian Ty Chisum
School: Texas A&M University-Kingsville
Position: WR/PR
Height: 6’4”
Weight: 220

What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?

Going into the season I established a goal of maintaining physical health. Football seasons are long and it’s hard to help the team win when you’re banged up and off to the side. I was able to play in every game with no issues. Another goal was to be an all conference Wr and that I accomplished as well.

Q: How do you think you took advantage of the extra year of eligibility to increase your chances of going pro?

The extra year gave me plenty of time to work and craft my skills, but it also gave my team more time to come together as one. I think both are crucial to success in the long run so the extra year was in our favor.

Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?

I think they’d say I’m a very focused and enthusiastic football player. I know what needs to be done and I enjoy doing it. What better place to be.

Q: When you are studying film, what are the things you focus on to improve your game?

When I watch film I try to pick up on coverage tendencies to anticipate what spots on the field are more likely going to be open. I also focus on the small details in route running. For example my steps during a route or how I’m coming off the line of scrimmage.

Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?

I believe what separates me from most athletes is my size, speed, and intelligence. Standing at 6’4 and weighing 220 pounds I’m still able to move like a smaller receiver. I think I can learn any playbook in a short time frame and understand different concepts.

Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?

For my off-season I plan on attending a training facility to sharpen my skills. For the most part I will be focusing on full speed route running.

Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?

Besides my play making ability I think the best attribute that I will bring to a team is the passion for the game. Both on and off the field my passion and energy for the game is always top tier which I believe will encourage others to work harder in turn creating more success for the organization.

Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL and any other pro leagues?

My final pitch to any organization out there is that I’m second to none when it comes to hard work. I’m no stranger to the grind and I want to win. I play to win.
