On To The Next One: Jason Pinkston
Staying on the topic of Drew Rosenhaus and the 2011 NFL Draft, the man seems to be on a mission to sign players who were represented by another entity on the days of the Draft, even though he cannot negotiate the terms of their rookie contracts yet. Earlier today, I reported that Rosenhaus signed former University of Miami Hurricane Allen Bailey, who was formerly represented by Terry Watson. Rosenhaus also recently signed Jason Pinkston, the #160 overall pick, made by the Cleveland Browns. Pinkston is an offensive lineman from the University of Pittsburgh. He had been represented by Octagon. Rosenhaus also represents Dion Lewis, the player taken directly ahead of Pinkston, who also happens to be from the University of Pittsburgh.
If my count is correct, based on the Bailey and Pinkston signings, Rosenhaus now represents 15 players selected in the 2011 NFL Draft.
