ETL Associates Rounds Out 2014 NFL Draft Class

New York-based ETL Associates recently rounded out its 2014 NFL Draft Class. The boutique sports agency signed University of Cincinnati linebacker Greg Blair and Miles College cornerback, Antonio Marshall.  Both will be represented by NFLPA Certified Contract Advisor, Eugene Lee.

“We are pleased to represent players of the caliber of Greg Blair and Antonio Marshall,” Lee said.  “In addition to their on-field ability, both Greg and Antonio are high character young men of faith who will be assets to their teams and communities.”

This past season, Blair led the University of Cincinnati in tackles (96) and tied for 9th in the American Athletic Conference.  He also tallied 6.5 tackles for loss, a fumble recovery, a forced fumble, and one sack.  NFLDraftScout.com ranks the Pittsburgh, Penn. native as the No. 19 linebacker in this year’s draft.

“Greg Blair is a stout, downhill tackling machine who packs a wallop,” Lee said.  “He is an effective blitzer and plays faster than his 40 time.”

A former Indiana University cornerback, Antonio Marshall played the 2013 season at Miles College following a dismissal from the Hoosier program for a violation of team rules.  He finished with 30 tackles and one interception last year.

“Antonio Marshall is a strong tackler who loves to come up and support the run,” Lee said.  “He has excellent ball skills and position flexibility to move to nickel or free safety on passing downs.”

Blair is training at Bommarito Performance in Davie, Fla. while Marshall is outside Atlanta with a personal trainer who he has worked with since high school.
