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

I wanted to show scouts versatility with my game and I think I did that to some degree but not all with the defense we played when I was at Temple.

Q: How do you think you took advantage of the extra year of eligibility to increase your chances of going pro?

This allowed me to focus on my body more doing the extra things that I thought was a weakness in my game and change into something that could help me in the long run.

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

They probably would say I’m a quiet lead by example guy, just keep my head down and work in silence.

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

Honestly I focused on more of myself then anything. I look for ways I could have do certain things better. For example, if I would get off this block earlier and more violent I could have did this before that happened. Also, I look for the smallest things that can give me any clue of to get a jump on the snap count.

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

I think my football intelligence separates me from other prospects because I look for anything to give me a hint on the next play, the players stances their tendencies before the play, and the snap count as well. Just some things like that.

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

Just to stay strong and in shape. Train with some of my colleagues that’s already in the NFL.

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

The ability to stay calm in stressed situations and keeping a logical and cool mind at all times.

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

NFL are going to get a guy that’s willing to do anything, a keep his head down and work kind of guy, a guy that’s going to stay out of trouble off the field but also give 110% on the field.
