Position: Tight End
Q: If you could describe your style of play in 3 words, what would they be?
Paul: Physical, technical, dominate.
Q: How are you going to train/prepare this offseason in preparation for the draft or other pro opportunities?
Paul: I trained with coach Taylor Scott in Tampa, Florida for two months in preparation for my pro day.
Q: If you could compare yourself to one current or former NFL player who would it be and why?
Paul: I’d compare myself to Rob Gronkowski, we are very similar in size, he is a complete tight end who can run and catch, as well as being a dominate run blocker.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
Paul: Defensive schemes and tendencies. I look to see what kind of coverage the defense is playing and what my assignment would be on certain plays we are scheming for.
Q: What separates you from other players at your position?
Paul: There’s not many prospects who have my size and length who can block in the trenches, but also extend the field like I can. I can make big catches and absorb big hits.
Q: What kind of abilities would you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
Paul: My work ethic will speak for itself. On and off the field I’ve committed myself to be the best I can be and I’m constantly working to perfect my craft.
Q: What is your final pitch/sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
Paul: Not a lot of people have had to go through what I’ve been through on and off the field. My ability to always keep my head up and keep fighting makes me special.
