2013 NFL Draftees and their Sports Agents

sports agentThe 2013 NFL draft has come and gone.

Eric Fisher was selected first overall by the Kansas City Chiefs out of Central Michigan, as the Chiefs hope to re-invigorate a devoted fanbase who watched the team fail miserably last season with a record of 2-14.

Fisher is projected to make close to $22 million with the Chiefs and his huge payday will be in thanks to his agent Joel Segal of Lagardère Unlimited.

Lagardère Unlimited represents three clients who were selected in the first round: Fisher, Tavon Austin and Jarvis Jones. To say that the agency has their hands on three potential superstars would be an understatement.

Have you ever wondered who brings in the dollars and cents for NFL players?
