College Football Players Headline Sports Agents

Drew Rosenhaus Signs Oregon QB Darron Thomas

Drew Rosenhaus is now representing two players at the quarterback position who hope to be selected in the 2012 NFL Draft.  I have already reported that Rosenhaus represents former University of Miami quarterback Jacory Harris.  Rosenhaus also recently signed up former Oregon quarterback Darron Thomas.

Thomas is leaving a year of eligibility on the table by declaring for the NFL Draft this year.  However, he certainly proved himself at Oregon, throwing for 2,761 yards and 33 touchdowns in 2011 alone.  Thomas has already earned his degree and understands that he may not be picked until later in the draft, and that he runs the risk of not being drafted at all.  However, if he excels in his workouts, he is the type of player who could see his draft stock rise quite a bit.

It will be interesting to watch how Rosenhaus, an agent not known for representing many QBs, manages representing both Jacory Harris and Darron Thomas leading up to the 2012 NFL Draft, and whether Rosenhaus signs any more QBs prior to the start of the draft.

Rosenhaus is a well renowned name I’m sure exploring in other positions is not going to frighting him however, he will excel at it.
