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.

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

Where are you from?
Lynbrook, New York

My role model I would have to say is my father. He is one of the hardest working people I know and has always put my family’s lives as a priority before himself.
Did you play any other sports growing up?
Lacrosse and Wrestling
Did you play any other positions in football?
At your position, what separates you from others?
My Motor, and relentlessness in the pass rush.
When you are breaking down film, what do you look for?
Formation tendencies, and offensive linemen faults such as if he leans or sits in his heals in the pass. I also look for the running-back’s depth sometimes giving away run/pass.

Having my first injury ever tearing my bicep my sophomore season after having a good freshmen year playing. I overcame that by shortening my recovery period through my work ethic and teammates support giving me the ability to return for playoff’s. Which was never expected from doctors and coaches.
Do you have any pre-game rituals?
Listen to music, and take a hot shower.
What is your biggest strength?
My biggest strength is that I am a competitor, and have a high-motor.

I will give everything I have everyday on and off the field to benefit your organization and will do whatever is asked of me on and off the field.
