Congrats. I hope Rulon impresses teams and is in the NFL next year. A couple questions for his agents: who is officially his agent (can you represent him Darren without being NFLPA certified)? Do most agents pay for the costs of the athlete training, housing, nutritional meals, etc. for pre-draft expenses? How did Dynasty go about identifying Rulon as an ideal client (I read up about him and he sounds like an outstanding person)? How did Dynasty recruit him (e.g., did you just send him or his coaches info about your agency)? Did you have to meet with Rulon and make a presentation? Lets say Rulon is a 3rd or 4th round pick, what is the typical contract for such a player and what is the agent fee? Thanks a lot in advance for your responses.

I’ll hold off on answering these questions for the time being because there has been a small update to the situation. Check back in a day or so once things get a little more settled.

I can answer a few questions at this point, though. I cannot represent a player without being NFLPA certified. Matthew Watkins, employed by Dynasty and NFLPA certified, can represent an NFL prospect. If we are going to take on an NFL prospect, we are going to pay for costs of training, housing, meals, travel, etc. We liked Rulon because of his tremendous upside and fabulous character. His father contacted us in his agent search and we continued to correspond back and forth. Matt flew out to the Emerald Bowl to follow up.

garrett those are good questions you ask, do you have an email address i can reach you at? it doesnt have to be your primary one just a way i can ask you a couple questions
