Q: If you could compare yourself to one current or former NFL player who would it be and why?
Bobby: Current: HaHa Clinton-Dix, because he is Long, rangy, smart and can cover. He is also good open field tackler. Former: Ed Reed, because he is extremely intelligent and plays a ton of games with the Offense. He was also a commander of the defense that communicated great. Also, because he had fun while we was doing it all.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
Bobby: First, I will watch the scheme of the offense. Who they like to get the ball to, where the ball is most often ran and thrown, tempo, etc. Then, I will watch individuals, how they move, tendencies, feet/hands, temperament, routes and any other weaknesses I can find. I will also watch YouTube interviews, highlights, TV game copy, and even social media.
Q: What separates you from other players at your position?
Bobby: My ability to understand what an offense is trying to do, then orchestrate my defense to be in the right position. The way that I prepare and study the game is like NO OTHER player at my level and my work ethic will allow me to grow at the next level. I am very coachable, but also able to offer opinions in a respectful manner. Lastly, my character speaks for itself. I am not a guy with ANY off field issues that will have to be a concern.
Q: What kind of abilities would you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
Bobby: My ability to learn the defense very quickly and play fast. I play very long and can cover a ton of ground instantly. If I make a mistake, I’m mentally tough enough to move on to the next opportunity. I am a leader in everything I do on and off the field. I take my love for football serious and I am willing to do what ever it takes to be a dominate force in the NFL for years.
Q: What is your final pitch/sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
Bobby: If I am given the opportunity, I will be an asset to any team serious about winning Super Bowls. I will work harder then every one of my competitors and I will give relentless effort every chance or rep I get. You will never hear about me on the news unless I’m caught giving back to the community. My love for football is what drives me to work as hard as I do, but it’s not work when you love what you do.
