Great article about the behind the scenes of an NFL Agent
Almost instantly we got some new clients, including troubled Ohio State running back Maurice Clarett (for whom we did some of our best work; a player no team should have touched got taken in the third round)
My favorite part of the article so far.

Is Shaun Hill a top 10 QB? Definitely not. Is he a top 20 one? Almost certainly.
If you were a good player at UCLA, I made a run at you. I tried to get can't-miss NFL left tackle prospect Jonathan Ogden as a client, but he wouldn't take my money. He did, however, go with me to a Janet Jackson concert. My girlfriend got two tickets, and I told her, "Sorry, I need those tickets for J.O. He's a big Janet Jackson fan." Instead of going to the concert with my girlfriend, I went with a 6'9" guy who weighed more than 300 pounds and who screamed "Janet!" the whole night like a teenage girl.
I tried to pay UCLA's J.J. Stokes and USC's Keyshawn Johnson, and they said, "No."
Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports that based upon a Sports Illustrated article which includes details of agent Gary Wichard and Mel Kiper Jr.'s releationship, ESPN is looking into those dealing for a potential conflict of interest.
Their relationship could present an ethical dilemma for the all-sports network.
"We just learned of the story today and are looking into it," ESPN said in a statement.
Agent Josh Luchs references Wichard allegedly having Kiper call during a meeting with Stanford defensive tackle Willie Howard.
"Gary and I were talking to Willie in Gary's office when Gary's phone rang, and he put it on speakerphone," Luchs wrote. "'Viper, how are you?' Gary said. That's what he called Mel, Viper or Vipe. 'Viper, I'm sitting here with the best defensive lineman in college football. Do you know who that is?' You must be with Willie Howard,' Mel said."
