How to Get Drafted into the NFL

on September 18, 2019

Over 73,000 students participate in college football every season. Of those 73,000+, around 16,000 are draft-eligible—and only 254 get drafted by NFL teams. That means only about 1.5 percent get to continue living the dream.

So, with the odds stacked against getting drafted, how does a player go about getting drafted into the NFL?

Some will say that it is just a matter of being the best at your position– like that is an easy thing to become. For some, that may be all that is necessary to get drafted into the NFL. But for most, it will take a little more—which is where Agency Athlete can come in handy.

Every player, whether he is a first-round pick or an undrafted free agent, will need to prove that he has a high football IQ and a great work ethic.  But how can you do that if you aren’t a household name or a finalist for some award?

What if you aren’t good around people, have trouble articulating your thoughts, or struggle with interviews?

Agency Athlete can provide players with management and consultant services that can help players put their best foot forward around NFL evaluators. They can assist in training (physical and mental), interviews, social media, draft preparation, and so much more.

With the right assistance (like what Agency Athlete offers), good college football players with the talent to play at the next level can increase their chances of getting drafted into the NFL.

Because when it comes to getting your shot, you don’t want to leave anything to chance.
