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

I will bring my best effort every play to help my team succeed. I’m very smart and study film very well and can help my teammates pick up tendencies. I’m also a great leader on and off the field.
Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
Every goal of every NFL team is to win a Super Bowl, so I would tell them I will do my job day in and day out with 100% effort to help them achieve there goal.
