re: NFL Agent Howard Shatsky Answered Your Questions Here

Hagams asks:

"How do you keep a kid that has high first round hopes, but low third round talent calm prior to the draft? I imagine everyone thinks they should go higher in the draft. Do you feed their ego, or do you try to keep them grounded? Thanks."

Hagams, all agents do things differently but for me the best approach is honesty. I tell my clients what the teams are saying. I also always caution them that on draft day anything can happen. If a team tells you that if you are there at #20, we are taking you, dont necessarily count on that. What they really mean, but arent saying, is so long as no one we have rated in the top 5 picks falls to #20 than we are selecting you with that pick. One player falling that a team has rated very high or at a position they have an extreme need for can change their pick. And no one is calm on draft day!

mlmpetert asks:

"Has he read "The Things We Think and Do Not Say: The Future of Our Business" and if so does he agree with it?"


I enjoyed Jerry McGuire and I always Show My Clients The Money!

mlmpetert also asks:

"Not sure if he will answear these:
Whats his faviort teams to work with, what are the worst teams to work with. And to go along with that faviort position and least faviort position."


I dont have a favorite or least favorite team to work with. I have good relationships throughout the NFL and have great respect for the team negotiators, they are very good at what they do. There is not much difference in representing a player at different positions. One of my mentors and heros Bill Parcells told me a long time ago when I recruit I should miss big or miss fast and I have always followed that advice.

"Who is his faviort team?"

I grew up in NJ so I have always rooted for the Jets and Giants. Having said that Chico, my first client ever was Andre Collins and I live in Maryland, so I have a soft spot for the Skins!


Chico23231 also asks:

"Who is Ellis recieving the most interest from? Please answer Skins to both, thanks"

We have received a lot of interest from multiple teams.

SmootSmack asks:

"How do you balance finding the best opportunity for your clients with preparing them (financially/emotionally) with the very real possibility that they won't achieve their NFL dream?"

As I mentioned before, my approach is to always be honest with my clients. I have always remember what one of my clients said to me, there is so much BS that goes on in this business, I know the one place I can call and never get lied to is your office. That is important to me and the individuals I represent. Less than 1/2 of 1% of every person that ever played Division 1 college football will ever even step on an NFL field. Even for those who do reach the next level, the average career is less than 4 years. That is why it is important to graduate from college and also to begin working on a second career while you are playing in the NFL. People think that all NFL players are millionaires, that is far from the truth. I feel the guys I represent truly appreciate the unique opportunity they have to play in the NFL and the responsibility that comes with that.

Matty's locked me and the rest of the mods out of the Warpath facilities during this labor impasse. Major sticking point has been reserved parking spaces. He makes us take a shuttle from a satellite lot to the main WP offices.

Very cool, thanks. I think Ellis is a really nice sleeper at NT, wouldnt mind him at all in a Skins uniform.
