Hunter Rockwell: 2018 Draft Prospect Interview

Name: Hunter Rockwell
School: Tiffin University
Position: Running Back
Height: 5’11”
Weight: 200

Q: What were some of your goals heading into your final collegiate season?

Being a grad transfer, my goal was to contribute to the team and get on the field any way possible.

Q: If you could describe your style of play in 3 words, what would they be?

Playmaker, Dynamic, and Calm.

Q: How will you train and prepare this offseason for the draft or other pro opportunities?

There are a couple facilities I am looking to train at back in Sacramento that I trained with when I was playing at Sacramento State.

Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?

I like to see what fronts the team tends to run, how heavy of a blitz team they are, what downs they like to bring it on, the tendencies of the linebackers, and how active the secondary is in the run game.

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

What separates me from other Running Backs is that I am very dynamic. I would say my hands are even better than most receivers, so I can be used in more ways than most other Running Backs.

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

On the field, I am a leader by example, I am not one to follow the pack. I do what is asked of me without complaints and always look for the betterment of the team. Off the field, I bring maturity and people skills, so I would make an organization look good through my actions, whether that be at team events or community service events.

Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?

My final pitch would be that I am a very diverse back that can play in the slot and my speed allows me to stretch the field when coming out of the backfield. I have return capabilities that will help on Special Teams as well. I have never been in trouble with the law so there will be no need to worry about off the field issues.
