- Creative Artists Agency (Tom Condon and Ben Dogra) led all agencies with 5 players selected in the first round. Most impressive about that fact is that all 5 players were selected before pick 24. 4 of those players were selected before pick 12. In 2010, CAA represented 6 first round players on Day 1 of the Draft.
- Athletes First had the 2nd most picks with 4 players going in the first round. Their drafted players were also selected in the top portion of the first round. All 4 of their clients selected in the first round were taken before pick 18.
- SportsTrust Advisors, the new company created out of the merger of Pat Dye, Jr.’s ProFiles Sports Inc. and Jimmy Sexton’s Athletic Resource Management (ARM) had the 3rd most players drafted in the first round. Julio Jones, and especially Christian Ponder, went higher than many had expected.
- A lot of familiar names on the list. This year, the coming out party is for Patrick Lawlor of Galaxy Sports (representing Patrick Peterson). Last year, Joe Haden was selected two spots later than Patrick Peterson was drafted this year. Haden’s representative, Malik Hafeez Shareef, was also a brand new competitor for the large agencies to follow.
