When I study film, I look for Wide Receiver releases and how they block. I feel I can get a sense of what kind of man they are from those things.

A strength that I will bring to a team is leadership. Half way into my Junior year and through my senior year, I was pushed into the leadership role. Now, I’ve been doing it for so long, it’s like being a leader is embedded in me. That’s for both on and off the field.
Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
My final pitch would be that I am the next Tyrann Matthieu. I am not one to pass up on and I will make plays wherever I go.
