Ramon Patton: 2018 Draft Prospect Interview
Name: Ramon Patton
School: West Georgia
Q: What were some of your goals heading into your final collegiate season?
My goal was to help my team to national championship, but we fell short in the 2nd round of the playoffs and also to just go out and have fun playing the game I love.
Q: If you could describe your style of play in 3 words, what would they be?
I play physical, fast, and smart football.
Q: How will you train and prepare this offseason for the draft or other pro opportunities?
I’m training with Manny out here in Georgia at U48 he is an outstanding professional trainer who is helping me a lot.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
While studying film, I look for a lot of things to try to give me things I see from teams who are about to run or pass. I look at the Offensive Line and their stance because it’s different from when it’s a pass or run and also I focus on the Wide Out’s splits and who is on and off the ball. I spend a lot of time watching film and helps me play so much faster.
Q: What separates you from the other players at your position?
What separates me is that I can play every Safety position and I can also play slot corner. I’m a big body Safety who can cover really well and tackle. That’s something that elevates my game.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
I’ll bring flexibility to a team because I think they can play me anywhere and I’ll feel comfortable doing it. They’ll be getting a guy who never gives up, has a will to learn, and to only get better from the start. I’m very coachable and just an all around hard worker. Off the field, they’ll be getting a guy who will spend most of his time to learn the system and just a guy who loves spending his time with family.
Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
Any team who gives me that opportunity, you will get the most out of me and I will bring so much versatility to the team. I can grow to be a dominant player at the highest level, I just need a chance.
