Scott Porter: What will you be doing from now until draft time to better prepare yourself for the NFL? Any post games and where are you training?
Dezman Moses: Right now I am working out in Alabama with Andy McCloy. It has been very good to me as he is a young and energetic guy who really has helped me a lot. He has helped prepare me for the combine and my pro day that I have later on. He has worked with me on the most important things and has helped me focus on preparing myself for what is ahead. On February 4th, I will be playing in the All-Star classic in Little Rock, Arkansas. I am really looking forward to playing in that game. It will be a very exciting time for me to play against and with players outside my conference and in front of scouts.
Scott Porter: Is there an NFL player that you model your game after?
Dezman Moses: There are a few guys I like to watch and pick tips up from. DeMarcus Ware and Clay Matthews are to players I like to watch. Both of these players are technicians and students of the game. I like to consider myself similar to them in those terms and I watch a lot of film on those two and try to pick up things from them to enhance my overall game.
Scott Porter: What do you feel are our greatest strengths?
Dezman Moses: I think my biggest strengths are my anticipation and my feel for the game. I have been playing this game since I was 10 or 11 and I have become very comfortable playing and understanding the game. I feel I play a big asset to the game by being a student of the game.
Scott Porter: What are your goals for the NFL?
Dezman Moses: First I want to get on a 53 man roster and work my way into a starting position from there. After that I will set new goals for myself. I want to go in and contribute right away in anyway that I can to help whatever team I end up on.
Scott Porter: How would you describe your style of play?
Dezman Moses: I use my quickness to my advantage. I am an undersized DE but at the same time I am very versatile and can be used in many different ways. I am athletic, strong and I have big hands that help me out a lot. I love to hit. I like to play physical and change the game around. I try and set the tone early in a game with my skill set and my aggressive nature. I like to have fun playing the game and I usually always do.
Scott Porter: What type of player and person is an NFL team getting in Dezman Moses?
Dezman Moses: I would explain to them that they are getting a type of person who has matured a lot throughout my college career. I have appreciated every opportunity that I have gotten at both Iowa and Tulane. I grew into a man and I have learned so much and continue to learn and become a better player as I develop. I am a responsible person who will sacrifice for my loves ones. I am a family guy. I am a mamma’s boy. As a player they are getting a hard worker who will work day in and day out to help his team. My trainer actually told me to quit doing so many workouts because I can’t stop myself from working out so much to continue to improve. I love the game of football and I love watching film. I would be honored to play for anyone in the NFL and I will work my tail off to get there.
Scott Porter: What do you feel are your greatest accomplishments?
Dezman Moses: We struggled at bit at Tulane but being a starter and 2nd team all conference was a good accomplishment. I had 9.5 sacks in just my second year of playing the DE position. It was a real good experience at Tulane working with a great coaching staff behind John Hendricks. I worked really hard here on my pass rushing and my ability to cover and I feel I will continue to improve and build off of everything I have learned at Tulane.
Scott Porter: What will you be focusing on to improve your game and take it to the next level?
Dezman Moses: Obviously as important as a 40 is in today’s game I want to polish that up as well as possible. I have been working on being more explosive and becoming a quicker player. I want to get stronger. All of these things are stuff you can always work on improving. The more I work on these things the more it will help me become a better player. I want to learn whatever system I go to quickly so I can get in there and contribute.
Scott Porter: What hobbies do you have off the field?
Dezman Moses: I really don’t have many hobbies away from sports. I like watching basketball and football whenever I can. I am a big sports nut and I watch a lot of sports on TV. I have my TV on ESPN all day.
