5 Mistakes College Players Make Trying to get into the NFL

July 11, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

College football is one of the best sports know to man. Now, don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the NFL too but there is just something about the men on the field juggling their school work, practice, team meetings and just trying to be normal that I really enjoy. These guys have got it all together, well most of them do. I do hate to turn on the news and hear they have gotten into trouble either for drugs, guns, or some kind of violence. I realize they are human too but I think some of them let all the fame and hype go to their heads.

Moving up to the NFL by either being drafted or going as a free agent can have some issues behind it and their are 5 mistakes college players make trying to get into the NFL. The first would be doing it solely for the money. Don’t get me wrong I love money just like the next guy but don’t let it rule you. The second would be going just for the fame, if you are meant to be there you will be. The third reason is doing it just to see if you can make it, since there are guys that you could be taking their positions that actually want to be there. The fourth reason is to have somewhere to get away too. I believe the NFL is a good sport to be in but if you are having trouble at home don’t bring that to work with you. The fifth and final mistake would be trying to compete with a sibling, you will always be brothers and nothing will change that. If you are both able to make it to the NFL that is wonderful but don’t do it to compete.
