I was able to come back and really try and perfect my craft and put out the best possible film I could while playing in the SEC.

My coaches and teammates would say I’m a team first type of player. I play with a lot of emotion and love competition.

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

While I watch film I watch every detail of the clip, I’m my own biggest critic. From pre-snap reads to the the time the whistle blows I try to find something I could improve on for the next opportunity. 

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

What separates me is my ability to communicate quickly and efficiently. Everyone who plays has a ton of god given ability. But what separates people at this level is their knowledge of the game and ability to communicate what they see in between the lines.

My off-season plan is to train down in Fort Myers Florida a a facility called X3.

The strengths that I will bring to a team on the field is my athletic ability, quick twitch, ability to sustain blocks down field, lastly my knowledge of the game as a whole. 
Off the field I’m going to bring a good person into the community, a grinder into the locker room a guy who loves the process of getting better in off the field ways too. I enjoy giving back through community service in my community as well. 

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

My final pitch is simple, I have a chip on my shoulder and want to prove that bringing me to your team is going to better everyone in the building. I love competition and that brings the best out of people.
