Exclusive Interview with Alabama DL Dalvin Tomlinson

Written by Justin Melo on April 5, 2017

2017 NFL draft prospect Dalvin Tomlinson could have gone to Harvard based on his academics. Ultimately, he choose Alabama and football. Now looking like a lock to be a top 90 pick at the end of this month, Tomlinson made the right decision, but that doesn’t mean school isn’t important to him. In this exclusive interview, the 310-pound Georgia native offers some wise words of advice for his peers regarding their career outlook. Don’t worry, we also talked a whole lot of football. Loaded with defensive talent all around him, I asked Dalvin if he feels like he’s being slept on a little bit, what the culture is like around Nick Saban and that perennial winning locker room, and much, much more. Some video analysis of Tomlinson’s skill-set is also included. Enjoy.

2017 NFL Draft Prospect Interview: Blair Brown, LB Ohio

Written by Pete Smith on March 30, 2017

Blair Brown is one of the most interesting, least talked about linebackers in the 2017 NFL Draft. Brown was not really on many draft radars at all until he went to the combine and forced people to take notice.

I had the chance to talk to Brown and ask him about the draft process and be reminded exactly what he did in his college career, which hit close to home.

Pete Smith: I have a bone to pick with you. During your career, you played my alma mater, the University of Akron four times. You did not let them win once.
