Around this time last year, it looked like Joe Flanagan and his DePere, Wisconsin based company, BTI Sports Advisors was going to be representing a #1 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. The player who was supposed to be taken high was Da’Quan Bowers, a defensive end from Clemson. By the time that the NFL Draft took place, Bowers’ draft stock slipped quite a bit and he was not selected until the Tampa Bay Buccaneers scooped him up with the #51 overall pick.
Once again, BTI Sports Advisors has a chance at representing a first round pick. The agency is hoping that their new client, Wisconsin center Peter Konz will improve his draft stock instead of go the way of Bowers from last year. Konz is already listed as the #1 player at his position and #21 player overall in the 2012 NFL Draft (according to NFLDraftScout.com).
