I have recently received word that former University of Miami wide receivers Travis Benjamin and Laron Byrd have selected their agents. Both receivers just completed their Senior seasons with the Miami Hurricanes. Neither player signed with the popular Drew Rosenhaus. Rosenhaus has already locked up a total of seven former Hurricanes who have declared for the 2012 NFL Draft, including five who have declared as early entrants, leaving their student-athlete eligibility behind.
Travis Benjamin has signed with Mitch Frankel’s Impact Sports of Boca Raton, Florida. NFLDraftScout.com currently ranks Benjamin as the 28th best wide receiver out of a total of 334 wideouts who are eligible to be drafted in 2012. Benjamin was the second-leading receiver on the Hurricanes this past season.
Laron Byrd signed with Zeke Sandhu of Morgan Advisory Group (MAG). Ryan Morgan (President of MAG) and Wynn Silberman (Senior Vice President of MAG) may also be involved in the representation of Byrd. NFLDraftScout.com does not have much faith in Byrd, listing him as the 46th best wide receiver eligible to be taken in the 2012 NFL Draft. The receiver from Louisiana picked an agency that is not based in Miami…and does not have an office in the State of Florida. MAG is based in California and Arizona.
