    NFL Draft: 2019 / Round: 1 / Pick: 6 for the New York Giants

    Favorite Football Team growing up: Carolina Panthers

    How excited are you to be playing in the NFL for the New York Giants? Very excited. Playing for the Giants & playing in New York has always been a dream of mine. New York is the biggest stage. I’m looking forward to the opportunity.

    Growing up who was your boyhood idol? Definitely my father. He always put me and my siblings first in anything he did.

    Are you excited about playing and learning with a New York legend Eli Manning? I certainly look forward to learning from Eli, I think there’ll a whole lot to learn there, but I’m also gonna be who I am and be confident in that.

    Describe your quarterbacking style. I’m very confident in myself and who I am. I think I’m a guy who plays from the pocket and a guy who can make all the throws. I see accuracy as a strength of my game, but I think I’m athletic enough to be able to extend plays, to move around the pocket and make things happen.

    What are you looking forward to most about playing this year for the Giants? I’m looking forward to learning a lot! I’m focused on being the best player I can be, be the best teammate I can be, and whenever my time comes, on winning football games.
