The Journey From High School To The NFL.

According to Ida Muorie, "The making of an 'elite athlete' is complex, and may be determined by a range of environmental, social, economic and behavior factors. Many believe that genetic disposition to athleticism may play a significant part in shaping the destiny of an athlete. Others think that genetics alone is not enough to determine what type of athlete a child will become. But, you can quantify it, and you can qualify it, but make no mistake about it, it takes a back-up system of conditioning coaches, trainers, nutritionist, advisers,a legal team and sheer determination to make it to the NFL. Pre-draft activity is a big business. It is estimated that Agent may invest somewheres between $10,000 - $25,000 on each prospect to get a competitive edge."
