Name: David Kroll
School: University of Delaware
What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
I wanted to become one of the best offensive linemen in the country and really dominate every snap of every game that I could. I think I did that but I could always be better.
Q: How do you think you took advantage of the extra year of eligibility to increase your chances of going pro?
I was just able to put more quality snaps on tape for pro scouts to see as well as earning more accolades like another All American and another all CAA honor.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
My teammates and coaches would definitely say I’m a little bit of trash talker. I always play with a chip on my shoulder but also try to keep it light at the same time.
Q: When you are studying film, what are the things you focus on to improve your game?
I try to see little nuances like how defensive linemen change their stance depending on down and distance or how linebackers align themselves when different blitzes are coming. Sometime teams safety rotations would also be huge clues into some of their blitzes as well.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
I think that I can continuously learn to improve myself, I am no where near my full potential. Every year of college I got better and I plan to continue to do the same.
Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?
I am going to train with X3 Performance down in Fort Myers.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
Like I said before I can continuously learn and improve on a daily basis and off the field I can be personable if I need to.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL and any other pro leagues?
Even though I’m from a smaller school at the D1 level, I firmly believe I can still compete with the best of the best. I will continue to master my position both mentally and physically to become the best football player I can be for any team.
