Name: Aaron Terry
College: Cal U of PA
Position: Defensive Back
Q: If you could describe your style of play in 3 words, what would they be?
Aaron: Passionate, confident, competitor.
Q: How are you going to train/prepare this offseason in preparation for the draft or other pro opportunities?
Aaron: I have been training with my trainer Nate Blaze. He has helped prepared me for my pro day, working in the specific drills to make sure that I was prepared as possible. Getting me a lot stronger and more explosive. Along with that just focusing I the little things more so on the aspect of my technique. The little things make the big things happen, I am a firm believer in that.
Q: If you could compare yourself to one current or former NFL player who would it be and why?
Aaron: I would say that I compare my self to Tyrann Matthieu, this is because he plays with so much passion which is something that I bring as well, but not only that, it is how versatile he is. He is able to play safety and corner which is something that I am able to do as well. I am able to play all over the field instead of just in one position.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
Aaron: When I am looking at film, I am looking at tendencies for the most part, and body language. Try to study when a receiver is going to break or I would say his break indicators. Not only that, I look at how the QB plays as well, how long it takes him to throw, does he look off. Does he like a more quick game, things like that. This does nothing but help me play after against an opponent.
Q: What separates you from other players at your position?
Aaron: What separates me, is how versatile I am. I am a safety that can cover like a corner and tackles just as well as a safety. You are able to put me in many different places on the field, giving coaches an opportunity to be able to play games with me in different spots on the field. Not only that, I have very good ball skills, I used to play receiver as well. When the ball is in the air, my only focus is being the one coming down with it.
Q: What kind of abilities would you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
Aaron: Ability that I would bring is being a great vocal leader. I am all about doing things right regardless if it’s on the field or off the field. I am very good at motivating people, leading them into the right direction. Making everyone have the same goal and be on the same page to achieve it.
Q: What is your final pitch/sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
Aaron: If you were to give me a shot, you would not regret that decision. I am someone who works hard and will do whatever it takes to succeed. Football is much more than a game to me, it’s my passion and you can see it through how I play. This is something that I love and don’t take for granted.
