Many strong NFL prospects like Akron Insider Linebacker Kurt Mangum are overlooked because draft reports and charts do not provide a comprehensive look at all 102 college teams. Players Authority has announced that is launching UnCharted Territory which will provide NFL scouts a weekly report on Players who may be overlooked by NFL Teams.

NFL Veteran Toby Wright’s talent was spotted by a well-known sports analyst who got him a break to play in a Senior Bowl Game. Toby a Junior College transfer to Nebraska was then drafted second round by the Los Angeles Louis Rams in 2004. If it was not for his “Angel” spotting his talent and making it known that this is a player in UnCharted Territory, then Toby’s NFL career may have never been.

Kurt Mangum, Inside Linebacker for the Akron Zips, recruited by Coach Amato and Terry Bowden is averaging 12 tackles a game. NFL prospect Kurt Mangum’s stats are solid enough to be a NFL prospect if he gets a look at a NFL combine. Kurt is 6’1’’. Weighs 235 lbs. and runs a 4.54 forty yard dash. “Kurt is in the right organization. The coaching staff has a long history of placing players into the NFL. It is going to come down to a Sr. Bowl Game and a NFL agent who can close the best scenario for a good look,” says Richard Victor Mahee, UnCharted Territory, Mahvrick.

When Terry Bowden took the job at Salem in 1983 he became the nation's youngest head coach in college football at age 26. Terry Bowden became the first collegiate coach in 50 years to win his 100th career game by his 40th birthday. Kurt Mangum went to Akron for his last year of eligibility because he saw the opportunity to play for two very seasoned coaches who could give him a shot at being a 2nd 3rd Round Pick in the NFL. Chuck Amato the Assistant Head Coach, Defensive Coordinator and Linebacker Coach at Akron recruited Kurt Mangum ll, to captain his defense team at Akron. During Chuck Amato's tenure, he has 22 players drafted into the NFL, including five in the first round picks.

Kurt is up against a 1-5 season and low recognition in the scouting reports and national player rankings. With his stats he is performing week after week better than many charted players. Akron Plays Cleveland this week. Last week Kurt Mangum had 17 tackles and 11 unassisted.

Players Authority has announced the launch of UnCharter Territory for players who are not getting the look they deserve. Sports analyst and scouts are participating in the information network to give that undervalued players the opportunity to show their abilities in a SR. Bowl and prove just like Toby Wright did: that they are worthy of playing in the National Football League. "Toby Wright is now retired after 14 knee surgeries and 3 shoulder surgeries. His passion is mentoring players on life after the game," says Richard Victor Mahee
