NFL players backgrounds…
1.The rich kids who pay there way through college, pay there way through scouting camp, and pay there way into the nfl.
2.The farmers. They do there chores, get scholarships to a halfway good school, and because of there size, get a good career in the nfl.
- The good ones. They are usualy not poor, but not rich either. They lift everyday, go to sites like this for tips, and practice every off season day.
There are few like number 3, but they are usualy the walter paytons and emmitt smiths. [/quote]
wow you must think getting into the NFL is easy! I do not agree with a single one of these. maybe it was like this 40 years ago but now a days there are so many high school football players out there now colleges can pick and chose the ones with real talent, these kids get the scholarships which means they play in the game. Now if these kids have the fundimental skills AND the athletic ability AND are able to get up the weight they get picked for the NFL.
having money has nothing to do with it, if anything your only at a school because daddy paid for it and you make the team as a walk on that counts against you! Walk on’s are obviously not going to catch the eye of the coaches to make 1st string (they wouldnt be walk ons if they could catch the coaches eye)
Being big isnt going to get you into NFL now a days, every college has a big group of 300 pounders.
The good ones are just as varied as the bad. Some lift every day, some drink beer and sleep with cheerleaders. Some come from poor inner city schools some were born with silver spoons in their mouths. They just some how came up with the right mind set and god given skills to be the best at what they do.
The NFL is made up of a very diverse group of people. At least where I’m from its fair to say as many rich kids as poor make it to the pro’s, in my area you never know what school is going to have the stand out.
And if it means anything I personally know 2 people who were in last years 1st round draft, both from completly different back grounds and different states for that matter!
