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

I set goals of over 1k yards and 15 TD but tore the UCL in my thumb during camp so my goals shifted to helping others. I wanted to leave my young guys off with a solid foundation to build off once I left.

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

I’m not sure what my coaches would say but I know my teammates would say I am a competitor, hard worker, and a good friend/teammate.

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

When I am watching film, I look for the things I struggled with on a particular day so I can focus on tuning it up before I’m back on the field. During camp and spring ball I’d always write 2-3 things I struggled with during a practice and make up a word for the day to help me emphasize a particular aspect whether it be physicality, effort, releases, breaks etc. then make sure I work it in pre practice. This helped me become a complete player because I never focused on just my strengths or weaknesses.

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

What separates me from other prospects at my position is that I’ve studied the position more than anyone and my attention to detail. I’ve watched film on every receiver with a similar play style and studied everything from body language, to foot placement in break, shin angle, how they set up routes, etc.

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

I am currently training for my pro day at Landow Performance in Centennial, CO and will likely continue to train their until minicamp.

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

I feel that I can bring a lot to a team. My biggest skill is my versatility and problem solving skills. I am elite at route running and catching the ball but also do all the little things well like blocking and getting others open. I have played inside and out from 190lbs-215lbs and I believe I am good and coachable enough that a team can mold me into whatever they need.

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

I’d say don’t let stats/accolades or competition sway you from a guy like me because all of those were going to be present without injury my final 2 years, watch the film. My mindset sets me apart and I truly believe my skillset is more geared to the NFL and I will thrive having a system with more spacing, a better QB and NFL caliber coaching, not to mention DBs can’t grab/hold the entire route like in college, so they’re going to have to match me out of the break which I find hard to believe will happen.
