Draft Diamonds Free Agent Interview: Byron Edwards, Defensive Back

Byron Edwards
Free Agent defensive bck Byron Edwards recently sat down with Justin Berendzen of NFL Draft Diamonds.

Hello, I am @jrberendzen on Twitter and this is one of my free agent interviews where I ask very deserving free agents questions about the players themselves and about what a team would get in these players. All of these players should get picked up by NFL and CFL teams and get a shot at being a career football player. So I hope you all read this interview and follow his journey. Check out his Twitter @clutch_x

1.If you could hang out with any football player past or present for a day who and why?
  • Champ Bailey, growing up before I even started playing defense, he was my favorite player. His style of play. His dominance. I liked that. 

2.What have been your favorite moments from your football life? 

My favorites would have to be:

  1. Upsetting UAPB during my time at Panhandle State
  2. My first blocked kick in High School
  3. Of course my first college INT

3.What is your mindset when you are on the football field?

  • When I am on the field I look to DOMINATE. I want to make sure that whoever lines up in front of me has a long day. 

4.What is your favorite snack? 

  • Sour Patch Watermelon 

5.What do you do for fun? 

  • Most of the time you can find me playing Warzone or Somewhere looking for shoes 

6.What do you hope to accomplish if you make it into the NFL? 

  • I hope to accomplish my goal. I’ve always dreamed of playing in the NFL and once I get there I want to leave a mark. 

7.If your life was a tv show what would you call it and why?

  • Unfamiliarly Random. In my life, I feel like the most random things happen to me lol. You never know what to expect. 

8.What made you decide you wanted to be a football player? 

  • The first day I went to peewee practice. We scrimmaged and I made my first tackle. From that point on, I knew this was for me. 

9.If you were on an island and could only have three things which three things would you have? 

  • My Xbox, TV and wings lol

10.What would a team get in a player like you?

  • A team would get a true blue-collar worker. There’s beauty in the grind and my work ethic translates to the field. I can handle any task in any phase of the game. 

11.If you were an animal which animal would you be and why? 

  • A white tiger, they’re exotic. They put fear in the heart of their prey. 

12.If you could live anywhere in the world where and why?

  • Honestly, I would love to move to Toronto. I feel like the vibe there would mesh well with my personality.
