Derrick Rose Out For Playoffs – Torn ACL

The Chicago Bulls took a 1-0 series lead over the Philadelphia 76ers today but may have lost even more. Their star point guard, Derrick Rose, tore his ACL, towards the and of the game and will be out for the rest of the playoffs. The Bulls won the game 103-91, but as Rose went to the lane he landed bad in where he tore his ACL in his knee. The Bulls will really miss Rose’s presence on the floor, especially as they look to make a playoff push.

2012 NFL Draft 1st Round Recap

The 1st Round of the NFL Draft is in the books! Picks 1 and 2 were already set and after was full of trades and interesting moves.

1. Indianapolis (2-14) – Andrew Luck (QB – Stanford) – Agent: Will Wilson (Wasserman Media Group) – Earlier this year, Wasserman Media Group hired Andrew Luck’s uncle and NFLPA-certified advisor Will Wilson. Luck is the first NFL player that the company has ever represented for the purpose of negotiating team contracts.

2. Washington – from St. Louis (2-14) – Robert Griffin III (QB – Baylor) – Agent: Ben Dogra (Creative Artists Agency) – RG III and his family did their due diligence when it came to selecting an agency. Reports stated that they met with at least five agencies and involved Baylor’s compliance department in the process.

3. Cleveland – from Minnesota (4-12) – Trent Richardson (RB – Alabama) – Agent: Jimmy Sexton (Creative Artists Agency) – Jimmy Sexton also represents Richardson’s college coach, Nick Saban.

4. Minnesota – from Cleveland (3-13) – Matt Kalil (OT – USC) – Agent: Creative Artists Agency – CAA represents 3 of the first 4 picks in this Draft. Quite an accomplishment for a company that dominates the Draft year after year.

5. Jacksonville – from Tampa Bay (5-11) – Justin Blackmon (WR – Oklahoma State) – Agent: Todd France – Blackmon signed with France shortly after France’s Atlanta-based France AllPro Athlete Management was purchased by Buffalo Sabres owner Terry Pegula.

6. Dallas – from St. Louis – from Washington (8-8) – Morris Claiborne (CB – LSU) – Agent: Bus Cook – Representing athletes from the southeast is nothing new for Cook. Last year, his name was on the Standard Representation Agreement for six players selected in the Draft (four from Mississippi State, one from Ole Miss, and Cam Newton – #1 overall pick from Auburn).

7. Tampa Bay – from Jacksonville (4-12) – Mark Barron (S – Alabama) – Agent: Creative Artists Agency – CAA with 4 players selected in the first 7 picks.

8. Miami (6-10) – Ryan Tannehill (QB – Texas A&M) – Agent: Pat Dye, Jr. – Dye was formerly teamed up with Jimmy Sexton (who is now with Creative Artists Agency). Dye continues to operate SportsTrust Advisors.

9. Carolina (6-10) – Luke Kuechly (ILB – Boston College) – Agent: Creative Artists Agency – 5 of first 9 picks for CAA. Enough said.

10. Buffalo (6-10) – Stephon Gilmore (CB – South Carolina) – Agent: SportStars

11. Kansas City (7-9) – Dontari Poe (DT – Memphis) – Agent: Jimmy Sexton (Creative Artists Agency) – 6 of first 11 picks for CAA. Quick plug for Collegiate Sports Advisors, which set up Memphis’ Professional Sports Counseling Panel in 2012 and informed Poe and his family about the NFL’s College Advisory Committee.

12. Philadelphia – from Seattle (8-8) – Fletcher Cox (DT – Mississippi State) – Agent: Todd France/Brian Ayrault – Ayrault recently teamed up with France when Terry Pegula purchased France’s company.

15. Seattle – from Philadelphia (7-9) – Bruce Irvin (OLD – West Virginia) – Agent: Joel Segal (Lagardere Unlimited) – Many people surprised that Irvin was such a high pick. Segal certainly earned his money on this one.

Their highest drafted client was Curtis Brown, who was selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers with the #95 overall pick at the end of the third round.
