NFL Draft Diamonds and our staff have been bringing our readers Prospect Interviews over the past 2 years and this year we mixed up the questions and added some fun questions for our readers. We have tons of NFL staff that read our interviews, and we actually received several of the questions from NFL scouts we speak too. This gives them a little bit more information regarding your character. We hope to bring you more than 300 interviews of NFL Draft Prospects this season. You will be able to track them all on the front page of our website in the banner.

What is your name?

Roman Namdar

What is your Height/Weight?

6’1 195

What is your position?

Wide Receiver

Where do you play college football?

University of Mount Union

Football is about giving back, what is the coolest thing you have done off the field?

This past season some of my teammates and I took part in a program called Raider Buddies where we would visit local elementary schools every Friday and hang out with the first and second graders throughout the day.

What was the hardest college class you ever had to take?

Corporate Finance

Where are you from?

I’m from Southlake Texas

Who is your role model, and why?

My dad is definitely my role model.  Seeing how hard he works and how much he has sacrificed in order to better off my sister and I is very inspiring.

Did you play any other sports growing up?

I played baseball and basketball when I was young. In high school I ran track.

Did you play any other positions in football?

I played quarterback up until my junior year here at Mount Union.

At your position, what separates you from others?

What separates me from others is my knowledge of the game. Playing quarterback so long has helped me understand the offense as a whole and it allows me to interpret my routes differently than others.

When you are breaking down film, what do you look for?

When breaking down film I look at how the defense lines up to certain formations and down and distance. Then I’ll look for certain tendencies and coverage’s that they run to certain formations. Then I’ll break down my individual match ups and see where some of their weaknesses are.

RomanWho was the toughest player you ever faced?

My teammate Tre Jones

If you could compare your play to one player in the NFL who would it be and why?

I would compare myself to Jordy Nelson.  We both are big play wide outs that also come up with key possession catches. Jordy also was a 400 runner in track just like myself.

What was the biggest obstacle in your life you had to overcome, and how did you overcome it?

The biggest obstacle I’ve overcome is missing most of my senior year of high school to an ankle injury. I only played a handful of games which was a huge letdown for me personally.  After the season my dad sent my JV film to a bunch of schools and luckily Mount Union was interested which is how I miraculously landed here.

Do you have any pre-game rituals?

I have a bunch of pre-game rituals but the most important one is that I say the same prayer before every game.

What is your biggest strength?

My biggest strength I would say is my speed and knowledge of the game.

What is your biggest weakness?

My biggest weakness would probably be my lack of experience at the position.  I’ve only played receiver for two seasons.

If I were a GM and gave you a second to sell yourself, what would you say?

I am a very smart player that is willing to do whatever it takes to make it on a team. There are not many players that have the same love and passion for the game as I do.

Who was your favorite player and/or NFL team growing up?

My favorite player growing up was Marion Barber III and I love the Dallas Cowboys.

If you could have dinner with three people dead or alive, who would you choose?

Kobe Bryant, Michael Jackson, and Bruce Lee

What will be the first big item you buy once you are in the NFL?

My first big item will be paying off my student loans.
