Roger Walker: 2018 Draft Prospect Interview
Name: Roger Walker
Position: Running Back
Q: What were some of your goals heading into your final collegiate season?
Some of my goals were to do what I could do to have a winning record. Be the best player that I could be. Also to become an All-American again.
Q: If you could describe your style of play in 3 words, what would they be?
Hard nose runner.
Q: How will you train and prepare this offseason for the draft or other pro opportunities?
Due to the lack of funds and not having an agent. I have had help from a couple of trainers and their online programs. Also, my trainer back at home has helped me over Christmas break.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
I focus on how the defense lines up. How the Linebackers and Defensive Line play, their favorite moves, how the shed blocks, and play the cut.
Q: What separates you from the other players at your position?
I am always willing to get better and I watch film a lot to prepare for the game. I always go hard even in practice because I treat it like a game. I even go to the gym after practice or days we have off to get better for advance weeks. I am a versatile back. I can line up in the slot and catch out of the backfield.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
My character on and off the field. My skills on the field. I’m always giving back to the community. I am a team player, not a me player. I could care less if I score, as long as we win I’m totally fine. I love winning, but I know it comes with hard work and preparation, especially for the professional level.
Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
I believe with my skill level and my hard work on and off the field, I am a great pick up. Also, my accolades show as well that I work hard. You won’t be upset with your choice. I just need a chance to show myself. I know I went to a small school, but football is football and I believe that my skills and my body can still play the game of football at the professional level. I will continue to better myself and get stronger and faster just for when that time comes and my name is called, I’ll be ready.
