HOLLYWOOD, CA(Hollywood Daily Star) 2015/8/10 – “A draft projection is just that, a projection and a prediction,” says The Agent star and agent Jeff Guerriero. “There are many factors that play into these projections such as career statistics, strength of the player’s team’s opponents…conference/schedule, position depth in that particular year’s draft and how the player stacks up against his peers, scouting reports, game film, injury history and intangibles like their character and drive and leadership ability.”

During the season Guerriero’s team monitors closely each player on their list. “Our team watches hours of film and speaks with numerous collegiate and professional scouts about each player to get a sense of each player’s stock throughout the season,” says Guerriero. “When appropriate, we schedule meeting with the players and their coaches to explain what services and benefits come with becoming part of the ProSource family. We will scour the nation to find the training facilities that address the specific needs of each client and arrange for the athletes to attend that facility through the NFL Combine and their individual pro day workouts as well as private workouts with teams. During their stay at their respective training facilities, each athlete is provided with transportation, food, entertainment, per diem, and a member of the ProSource staff will remain at the facilities for the duration of their training to ensure that all of their needs are met.”

Senior players are accompanied to the East/West Shrine game, Senior Bowl, or NFLPA bowl to showcase their abilities in front of NFL coaches and scouts.

“Effective representation is a lot like a marriage,” says Guerriero. “One of the benefits of becoming a member of the ProSource Sports family is that when a player joins us, so do his family members. We take care of a variety of issues for our clients and their families such as setting up non-profit organizations, assisting with the creation and operation of their football camps, real estate purchases business ventures, endorsement deals, injury settlements, marriages…as well as our players’ online and social media presence. At ProSource, we are available to our clients and their families 24 by 7.”

“I feel that being an attorney greatly benefits my clients,” says Guerriero. “There isn’t a day that goes by that my law degree and legal background doesn’t play a role in the representation of my clients. From real estate purchases to marriages to endorsement deals, I am constantly assisting my players navigate the complex legal issues that present themselves.”
