Today is the day that the NFL will officially release the names of the underclassmen who have entered the 2017 NFL Draft. Teams will make a tough decision as to whether those players should be selected over more tested individuals. Pro Days and the NFL Combine are coming and agents are busy preparing their new clients to put them in the best positions possible. Well, in today’s day and age, it is really about the agents paying for the expensive trainers located across the U.S. to get the players in tip-top shape for the aforesaid events, as well as All-Star type games like the Senior Bowl. It’s a tough industry where it is hard to compete without having resources ready to support recruits. Quick thanks to real money online casinos for keeping the lights on over here for another week.
