At NC State when we beat Clemson in 2021.

Just to have a stable home with an NFL team and show them I am a competitor and play on special teams and I can work my way into the team.

If you could hang out with any football player past or present for a day who and why?

DeAndre Hopkins, he is one of my favorite players and I’ve always looked up to him. I would love to ask him about getting into the NFL and get some tips from him.

My mother, she raised me on her own and I’ve seen her go through a lot of adversity and she was able to get through it and that inspired me.

How do you handle challenges both in life and on the football field?

First I pray about it and if it’s a problem I can fix I will attack it and if I can’t fix it then I will pray about it. I feel I know how to adapt to challenges and can keep pushing.

What would a team get in a player like you?

A leader that is hungry and willing to do anything to help the team win.

Either the brotherhood that comes with it or from enjoying the game and having fun and that I love everything that comes with it as well.

Emeka Emezie, he was probably one of the hardest workers and he was a humble guy and his pro career didn’t end up like he would’ve liked it to.

Writer’s notes:

(Devin has the third longest wingspan of any WR in the draft.)

(Devin was also NOT 100% healthy when he at the Hula Bowl.)
