Behind every professional football player is an agent. Their clients make the plays on the field, but they run the game off the field. With exclusive access beginning in September 2014, this series chronicles the journey leading up to the 2015 draft. From contract negotiations, endorsement deals, recruiting, private clubs and training to meetings with scouts and veteran players in the NFL, viewers will get raw insight into these behind-the-scenes business dealings. The relentless ambition, ruthless pressure and high-stakes of the pursuit to securing that top pick are revealed. Some call it the hustle and grind but it's all about survival.
The cast of agents include Jeff Guerriero, Peter Schaffer, Sunny Shah and Ed Wasielewski.
