On To The Next One: Leonard Hankerson

Leonard Hankerson has not even been afforded the opportunity to negotiate his first NFL contract yet, and he has already decided to switch agents since being drafted by the Washington Redskins in the 3rd round of the 2011 NFL Draft.  The receiver out of the University of Miami was formerly represented by Lagardere Unlimited, but recently decided to switch to Drew Rosenhaus of Rosenhaus Sports Representation.  I found it off that Rosenhaus missed on Hankerson in the first place with Hankerson being the most well known UM player in the draft and Rosenhaus basically having his pick at who he wants to represent from the school.

It is rather odd that a player would switch agents in a dead period.  With the NFL Lockout still in place, there is not much that an agent can be doing for his clients other than pay for their offseason training and stay in touch.  It is not like Hankerson will command any off-the-field deals prior to ever stepping foot on an NFL field.  Rosenhaus must have really worked his magic on this one.
