About

Hello! My name is Daniel Contreras. I chose to do my research project on sports analytics. I chosen to work on this project because I have always had a passion for sports and love learning about the statistics and data within them. After my project, I hope to study business or law and become a sports agent.

What does it take to be an NFL agent, and how do you get there?

Started May 23, 2023

Abstract or project description

Agents in the NFL play a crucial role in the careers of their clients, ensuring fair assessment of their value, negotiating playing and endorsement contracts on their behalf, and easing their transition from college to the NFL. The purpose of this research is to gain a deeper understanding of what it takes to become a successful sports agent. To gain this understanding, I will research the best practices employed by NFL agents in supporting their clients, while highlighting both strong and weak examples from recent NFL history. By doing this research, I will better understand the tools I need to pursue a career as a sports agent.
