Rosenhaus lands seven prospects from the “U”

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.

    Ahh more jailbirds.

    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…

    So, 7 special teams players…not impressed.

    I swear this man must be one filthy rich agent.

  5. goblue714 says: Dec 16, 2011 9:57 PM

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

    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!!!

    Rosenhaus probably had these guys signed up when they were freshmen. He is one smooth talker.

    Remarkably, Drew didn’t have to throw bail for any of them. Yet.

    Rosenhaus should be able to find Jacory Harris some work. He has a lot of ties in the CFL.

    Always nice to have Mr. Irrelevant and a bunch of UFA locked up early.

    I guess.

    Jacory Harris??? NFL??? BAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

  12. mvpolamalu says: Dec 16, 2011 11:33 PM

    I see pretty good potential in lamar miller

  13. trbowman says: Dec 16, 2011 11:55 PM

    It ain’t the U anymore.

    Miami has become a joke of a program.

  14. tomsd1 says: Dec 17, 2011 12:01 AM

    So besides outspoken Rosenbla – what are the other agents doing?

  15. thenmoveback says: Dec 17, 2011 12:31 AM

    Harris… Really

    In related news, 7 prospects from a 6-6 college team go undrafted

  17. brasho says: Dec 17, 2011 4:13 AM

    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.

  18. pats75 says: Dec 17, 2011 7:44 AM

    Hate on the u everybody but its still the u and always will be

  19. junebug42 says: Dec 17, 2011 8:41 AM

    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…

  20. coyotecane says: Dec 17, 2011 8:50 AM


    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.

  21. dcfan4life says: Dec 17, 2011 9:12 AM

    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.

  22. steeltownpride says: Dec 17, 2011 10:02 AM

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

  23. YouMadCauseImStylingOnYou says: Dec 17, 2011 11:33 AM

    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.

    I’d be perfectly happy to earn 10% of league minimum on 7 guys.

  25. Slim Charles says: Dec 17, 2011 12:38 PM

    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?

  26. footballhistorian says: Dec 17, 2011 1:26 PM

    Their graduation pictures are all down at the post office.

  27. dd393 says: Dec 17, 2011 5:54 PM

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

  28. briang123 says: Dec 17, 2011 10:40 PM

    I hope Rosenhaus hasn’t spent that Jacory Harris commission yet.
