Q & A with Coach Schuman and Dami Ayoola

Coach Schuman

#1 What do you think makes you a great NFL prospect ?

Dami Ayoola

What makes me a great NFL prospect is my ability to bring a sharp IQ, versatility and a work ethic that will help me excel for many years in this league. I’ve sponged up much information during my playing career and took great notes. Student of the game.

Coach Schuman

#2 What skills sets unique to your position differentiate you from other players at your position?

Dami Ayoola

At my position, there are many guys who do well when there’s a gaping hole. But more importantly to me are the “dirty work” plays which separates me. Making the tough hard nose runs without being the biggest guy statically. Having done film study and using the proper technique to stone a blitzing backer in protection. Being versatile is a huge part of my game as well in being able to start off every drive as returner. Whether i’m asked to block or take it to the house, both will be done with the same gritty approach.

#3 What are you doing right now to prepare for your pro day and what skills are you working on improving?

Dami Ayoola

In preparation for Pro Day, i’ve been leveling up my work capacity so far with lots of high intensity sprinting, lifting and sled work. It is paramount that I test well. To better myself, i’ve been focusing on stance, starts and transitions to produce and sustain speed. The proper diet and recovery also go hand in hand with the training.

#4 What do you think teams need to know about you that they may not already?

Dami Ayoola

What teams should know about me if they already don’t is the fact that I’m a consistent guy, looking to be the best any role given to me; a perfectionist learning from mistakes along the way. I take a tedious approach to the game with great attention to detail, day in & out. NFL teams should be at peace with giving chances considering the success stemming from undrafted athletes in recent years. Making a name for myself is what I pride myself on and this situation is no different.
