Favorite emoji?

Nauta: You take the cattails, put the eyes, and then another cattail so you're kind of looking through the weeds.

Favorite meal?

Nauta: I love a good steak so probably a good filet mignon.

What would your entrance music be?

Nauta: Put On by Young Jeezy.

Any hidden talents?

Nauta: Honestly, no. Anything I'm talented in, I probably put it out there. I'm good at snowboarding, which a lot of people might not know, so that could be a hidden talent.

If you weren't playing football, what would you be doing?

Nauta: I love remodeling houses, so flipping houses.

If you could have any super power, what would it be?

Nauta: Time travel.

If you could play any other NFL position, what would you play?

Nauta: Quarterback. I have a good arm and I think besides the quarterback, the tight end has to know the most. I think if I were to transition to another position, that one might be the easiest.

Favorite place to travel?

Nauta: The Bahamas. The water is just perfect over there.

One person you'd like to meet?

Nauta: I want to meet Leonardo DiCaprio.

Favorite athlete of all time?

Nauta: Kobe.

Favorite thing about Detroit so far?

Nauta: Downtown. It's just really clean and nice. It's a nice spot to go ride around or walk around.
