Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
When studying film, I look for the D-line and Linebackers to see what kind of fronts and tendencies they like to do when they play run and pass. Also, their physicality to see if they are downhill players or sit and react players.
Q: What separates you from the other players at your position?
What separates me from others is my versatility to be able to get in the slot and run routes or returns and home-run ability to where I can take it the distance when I get daylight. My physicality because I’m not the biggest guy, but I’m psychical at the point of attack and my ability to make people miss.

The strengths I would bring to a team is my passion for the game and my playmaking ability to make big plays to give the team a lot of energy.
