NFL Draft Diamonds Prospect Interview: Tyrell Green, DB, Southeastern University
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?
What is your Height/Weight?
What is your position?
Where do you play college football?
Southeastern University (FL)
Football is about giving back, what is the coolest thing you have done off the field?
Coolest thing I’ve done was help put on a flag football tournament for a local middle school that was a lot of fun.
What was the hardest college class you ever had to take?
Where are you from?
Who is your role model, and why?
My grandfather Robert Rainge. He’s such a hard worker and does whatever he can to take care of his family
Did you play any other sports growing up?
I played Football, Soccer, and Basketball growing up
Did you play any other positions in football?
I played Running Back, Wide Receiver, and DB
At your position, what separates you from others?
What separates me from others is that I’m a natural play-maker and have a great ability to create turnovers. When I’m on the field you can always expect me to make a big play at some point during the game.
When you are breaking down film, what do you look for?
When breaking down film I look for the best player on the opposite side of the ball so that I know who I’m shutting down this week.
Who was the toughest player you ever faced?
Toughest player I’ve ever faced I would have to say was Marcus Harris wide receiver for the NY Giants
If you could compare your play to one player in the NFL who would it be and why?
I’d compare my play to Tyrann Mathieu. This is because when you watch him play hes just always out there trying to make a big play as myself.
What was the biggest obstacle in your life you had to overcome, and how did you overcome it?
My biggest obstacle was the fact that I’ve played for 4 different colleges going through this journey. My main key to overcoming this was keeping faith in god that everything would work out and staying focused on what the end goal would be and not worrying about everything that was happening in between.
Do you have any pre-game rituals?
Pre-Game ritual is to find a secluded area and pray by myself for protection and to have a great game. Something my mom had me do ever since I’ve been playing little league.
What is your biggest strength?
Biggest strength is that I have a real good nose for the football
What is your biggest weakness?
Biggest weakness I would say is I’m pretty raw technique wise and rely a lot on just natural athletic ability
If I were a GM and gave you a second to sell yourself, what would you say?
What I would say is “Tyrell Green belongs in the NFL and you won’t find another player like him”
Who was your favorite player and/or NFL team growing up?
My favorite team growing up has always been the New England Patriots. My favorite player was Sean Taylor.
If you could have dinner with three people dead or alive, who would you choose?
Martin Luther King Jr, Dale Carnegie, Steve Jobs
