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 position?
Where do you play college football?
University of West Alabama
Football is about giving back, what is the coolest thing you have done off the field?
Participating in a local community at a summer football camp, it felt good to be involved with the kids. Kids make the game even more fun with their free spirits.

I would have to say Kinesiology. Just because our teacher wrote the book and gave us too many assignments.
Where are you from?
I grew up in the small town of Sweet Water, Alabama.
Who is your role model, and why?
Tom Brady, because he is the greatest of all time and no one expected him to be! He is the best because of his fierce competitiveness and hard work.

As a kid I participated in TaeKwonDo until I was 12. Then I played baseball and basketball in high school.
Did you play any other positions in football?
In middle school I was a QB/DB, then I grew taller and slower so I played linebacker and tight end in high school. In college I was a tight end for 4 years.
At your position, what separates you from others?

When you are breaking down film, what do you look for?
When breaking down film I just assess the opponents habits, strengths, and weaknesses.
