Miami-based agent Drew Rosenhaus has represented plenty of former University of Miami players over the years.  He now has added seven players who will be eligible for the 2012 NFL draft.

They are quarterback Jacory Harris (pictured), running back Lamar Miller, defensive end Oliver Vernon, receiver Tommy Streeter, offensive lineman Brandon Washington, linebacker Sean Spence, and defensive tackle Marcus Forston.

Miller, Vernon, Streeter, Forston, and Washington are underclassmen.

Miami, which finished the 2011 season at 6-6, opted not to accept a bowl invitation due to an ongoing investigation regarding compliance issues.

  1. Poor guys…. He’ll end up convincing them that they’re playing way above their contracts and they should pout and act like divas.
    He’s a scumbag…

  2. Wow I wonder if he’s prior contact with the U players? If any school deserves the death penalty it’s miami(fla).

  3. Pretty ridiculous to think that Olivier Vernon and his whopping 1.5 sacks and 3.5 tackles for loss on the season could think he could get drafted. Stay next year and get a degree!!! You’ve done nothing!!!

  4. I think you mean “six prospects AND Jacory Har ris” because he’s got only a little better shot of being drafted than I do.

  5. jacory Harris????? YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME!!!!! And I’m a fan of the “U”….GLAD HE’S GONE!!!!! With that arm,skinny frame & his decision making with throws down the field well what I’m saying is good “luck” on the next level..Which is Arena Ball or Coaching @ his old High School…

  6. Seriously?

    I get that America hates the U. What comes around… Whatever. But look at the talent that keeps flying off the shelves. While it’s an indictment on UM coaches for consistently having guys underprepared, look at a few recent guys like Colin McCarthy, Sam Shields, Leonard Hankerson, Orlando Franklin, etc. Most folks never heard of em, but they do now…

    Point is that talents not a problem. Miller, Forston and Streeter will make noise. Miller and Forston? Bigger news than PFT Planet thinks.

  7. Overall Rosenhaus has probably locked up 30 or 40 kids trying to get drafted, because he always does. Hate on him all you want, and he is a piece of work, but the man works 365 days a year non stop, any hour, all over the country to be where he is at. He watches tape, makes calls, flies to meet clients, fixes PR situations, talks to countless NFL hopefuls. He works multiple contract deals simultaneously and never seems to muck em up. Could any of you do that? Seriously, that job, well its something id never want to do.

  8. He paid them in college . Now they will pay him . Thats how it works . The U gets its monies worth im sure .

  9. 7-5 Miami team last year had 8 players drafted and 4 UDFAs.

    There is a pedigree that comes with playing at NFL U, no matter what the record of the team is.

    NFL coaches and scouts will always give considerations to guys from Miami because up or down they continue to produce solid NFL talent.

  10. I never understood people hating on Rosenhaus. How dare he negotiate aggressively and try to get a lot of money for his clients?!? Oh I forgot, everyone who says stuff like that “would play in the NFL for free” if they weren’t fat.

    People hate on agents, but they forget NFL teams have some pretty slimy people negotiating for them too – ever hear of AJ Smith?

  11. Seven holdouts, seven missed OTAs, seven partial training camps missed, half of them won’t last over two years in the NFL.
