A BSN pre-draft interview with intriguing Delaware Valley QB Aaron Wilmer. Aaron is participating in the 2015 BSN Showcase.
Thank you for taking the time out to speak with me today. Can you tell our readers a little more about yourself?
A: I’m happy to do this interview! About me, I’m was a quarterback at Delaware Valley College these past 4 years & currently going through the whole process of making it to the next level.
How are you preparing for the pre-draft process? Are you in training?
A: Yes! I am training g at Antonio Davis Premier Sports Academy. He works with a lot of guys heading into the combine to make sure they are well prepared for anything they ask me to do speed & agility wise.
How did you end up at Delaware Valley College?
A: Well, I started my career at West Chester Univ. Where I was offered a scholarship to play for head coach Bill Zwann. I decided to transfer towards the end of my red shirt freshman year and found a new home at Delaware Valley college
Who was the toughest opponent you faced over the course of your college career?
A: I wouldn’t say just one person , but a team I would say that gave me the most to prepare for during the week & game time adjustments would be Widener Univ. They really do a lot to confuse the quarterback.
What do you feel makes you so underrated or overlooked as an pro prospect?
A: Just the school I attended and my size is not the template for what NFL teams want. That being said, I am more than capable of making all the throws necessary in order to be successful at the pro level.
If you were able to sit down & pick the brain or have a dinner with any 3 people, living or deceased, who would they be?
A:Abraham Lincoln , Barack Obama, & Bill Walsh
Finally…supposing I were an NFL General Manager & gave you the chance to pitch yourself as a prospect, what would you say?
A: What you want in a quarterback is his leadership, ability to play from within the pocket and be successful but also if he needs to improvise can do so with his eyes always downfield, and finally a guy that will be in the film room before his head coach, showing that he is preparing and setting an example for the rest of the team.
Thanks so much for your time & best of luck moving forward!
