Sports Management Worldwide’s (SMWW) Undrafted Free Agent Placements

While I covered the 2012 NFL Draft and posted all of the player/agent relationships of those individuals who were selected, I have yet to write much on undrafted free agents who signed with NFL teams.  One company – Sports Management Worldwide (SMWW) – failed to have a client drafted, but ended up having a record year with a total of 24 undrafted players either sign contracts or be invited to NFL teams’ minicamps.  Only 2 of those players have left to find alternative representation.

According to SMWW, 17 graduates of their Athlete Management Course were able to experience the 2012 NFL Draft as an Agent.  The following list displays those 24 SMWW players who have either signed contracts or were invited to minicamp.  The two players in red are no longer signed to SMWW agents.

This SMWW is a scam. SMWW may list its Athlete Management graduates but the fact of the matter is Lynn Lashbrook  is the puppeteer. Guy lets his “students” recruit clients gives them a share of the inital contract then steals the credit being the go to guy for everything. See Matt Moore. A student recruited him but youd never know it cause anytime Moore is mentioned in the media its lashbrook who stands up and take the limelight.
