"If you're a good player, even second- and third-round draft choices are good football players. You've got to get through four years before you get to free agency and three years before you start to talk about a contract extension," agent Tom Condon said, noting he routinely urges players to think long and hard about staying in school. "So I think that is a motivating factor."
"With a player like Jadeveon in his second year, he was a tremendous player," says former NFL player Tom Condon, now a prominent agent. "And then he had to play his third year and you hear the questions about what kind of motor does he have. I watched him this year and I thought he was a fantastic player."
