The 2020 NFL Draft has finally concluded as the NFL hits that dead period that it typically hits this time of year. This year is especially rough with everything revolving around COVID-19 and all the restrictions with that. To give you all some content and such to kill the time, I am starting a new video series for the site where I sit down with a Colts’ player for an interview or film session to pick their brain and really dive into their game.
Today I was joined by Colts DE Kemoko Turay. Turay is a player who was well on his way to a monster season before breaking his leg in week 5 against the Chiefs. Before that injury though, he logged 1.5 sacks (another sack was erased due to a penalty) and was one of the most productive pass rushers in the NFL according to Pro Football Focus.
In this Film Session interview, Turay and I talk about many topics such as:
- His improvements from 2018 to 2019
- His work with Robert Mathis and how that has helped his overall game
- His work to improve his hands, plan of attack, and strengthen his core
- Turay walks me through his plan and 2-3 main moves on every rush
- Why defensive ends have to make every rush look the same
- The chess game that goes on between the offensive tackle and defensive end
- His thoughts on the additions of DT DeForest Buckner and Coach Brian Baker
