NFL DraftProspect Interviews

Interview with a small school hero: Jordon Gandy, WR, Murray State

NFL loves tall receivers. Guys who are not afraid of going across the middle, and guys who are big targets in the red zone.  Well Jordon Gandy is that guy.  The Murray State wide receiver stands at 6’4, and towers over the cornerbacks in the Ohio Valley Conference.

Last year, Gandy dominated the OVC scoring 11 touchdowns, and I expect him to ball out this year in Casey Brockman’s offense for the Racers.

What is your main goal going into your final season?

My main goal going into my final season is to overall stay healthy and injury free and as far as my play on the field, to stay consistent at what I’m doing and keep working hard.

As a small schooler, how are you planning to separate yourself from the other big school players?

To separate myself from other big school players I feel I need to have great numbers through every game and try to stay as consistent as possible showing up every game.

Who is the toughest player on the opposite side of the ball you have to face in practice?

The toughest player for me to go against would be D’Montre Wade, one of our best corners. We go at it everyday to help each other get better because he is one of the top corners in the conference and I feel one of the top on the nation.

Who is the most underrated player on your team?

The most underrated player on our team would be our linebacker Lamont Crittendon.

What’s your best memory of college so far?

My best college memory would be when we flew to play at Western Michigan.

What is the most memorable play so far in your career?

My most memorable play would be when I scored my first college touchdown my freshman year against Tennessee State.

Why did you pick your current number?

I picked my current number is bc it has always been an alternative to my original number which is 24. So my backup number has always been 4 then the list continues.

If an NFL GM was reading this (Which they do), how would you sell yourself in a couple sentences? 

I would sell myself by saying although I am a small school guy that doesn’t take anything away from the talent I have because I could also be at a big school possibly doing the same thing. Also I love being coached so if I was to do something wrong, I take coaching in a positive way.
