Neil Stratton runs an excellent web site, InsideTheLeague.com. Daily, Neil discusses the latest agent/player rumors in the NFL. Also, right around NFL draft time, Neil provides solid information regarding what players are signed with which agencies. Recently, he put together a list of agencies ranked by how many of their clients were drafted in April. Leading the pack was Athletes First, with a total of 16 clients drafted in the 7 rounds. Athletes First had a good spread through the rounds.
In second was Octagon, followed by Priority Sports. Both agencies had a good spread. After those three came CAA, who was extremely top heavy, as I have noted in prior posts. Not a single one of CAA’s 11 clients drafted were picked later than the third round.
Neil also breaks down the agencies into 3 categories: Major, Mid-Major, and Boutique. Goalline Sports, National Sports, and PlayersRep led the Mid-Majors with 5 clients of each agency selected. The Boutique agency with the most success was Metro Sports, who had a 5th rounder and two 6th rounders.
