College Football Players Headline Sports Agents

Catching Up With mgmt one’s 2012 NFL Draft Class

In July 2011, I wrote about a new agency named mgmt one and noted that it has quite a collection of superstars heading up its various divisions.  The company’s chairman and NFLPA Contract Advisor is James M. Gould, who was a founding member of the now defunct United State Football League.  Recently Gould and his company signed a few players who are eligible to be selected in the 2012 NFL Draft.  Those players are George Bryan, J.R. Sweezy, and Travaris Cadet.

George Bryan is a redshirt senior tight end from North Carolina State University. says that Bryan is the 8th best tight end that will be available in the 2012 NFL Draft, and projects him as a 6-7 round pick.  He received 2011 All-ACC Second Team honors after receiving first team honors the prior two years.

J.R. Sweezy is also a former redshirt senior from North Carolina State University.  The defensive tackle is 6’5 and hovers around 300lbs. lists 27 DTs ahead of him in his class and does not currently project him as being drafted.

Travaris Cadet is a senior running back from Appalachian State who is ranked by as the 33rd best running back in the 2012 class.  The Miami, Florida native has also played some backup quarterback, but will not get any looks from scouts based on his arm.
