Washington Football team linebacker Keishawn Bierria joins teammate Azeem Victor as he takes his first step towards an NFL career by signing his agent
The Washington Football team will need to fill another set of big shoes this off-season. Following linebacker Azeem Victor, standout Keishawn Bierria now joins his teammate in aiming at an NFL career. And similar to Victor, Bierria has taken his first step towards an NFL career by signing up with Best Football Agency.
After all, it’s not surprising that an NFL hopeful and talented linebacker should commit to an agent as he prepares for the NFL Combine and 2018 NFL Draft. In fact, the outcome of these two events dictate a great deal about a football player’s future. As such, it’s wise for any athlete heading to events of this magnitude to seek a guide. In the end, the sports agents have been there, done that, before.
2018 NFL Combine
On March 1, 2018, Keishawn Bierria will join seven hopeful Washington Football players invited to the 2017 NFL Combine. And from our perspective, it’s hard to truly describe the intense pressure placed on each young man at the combine. This is a make-or-break moment for each athlete. And so, no true opportunities for a do-over.
From the moment each player arrives, they are subject to scoring of potential fit with each NFL football team. Height, weight, confidence, subject matter knowledge, perspective, and physical strength, speed, agility, endurance, and accuracy will all be graded. But most of all, it is validating the play on the field. In the end, the decisions happen in the video room. Then the combine confirms the decision.
So what do you see?
So what do you see when you watch videos of Keishawn Bierria? Most see a true NFL competitor, a young man who never quit on his defensive assignment. At 6-foot-2 and 223 pounds, he is the right size and weight to get to the ball-carrier quickly, and stop him in his tracks when he arrives.
He can deliver on special teams, as well as run an oustanding defense. The fact is that he paired up with a good teammate in Azeem Victor, and the pair compliments each other well, aids both in their quest for NFL attention. Here is a young man who plays the role of linebacker well. He knows his assignments, executes the play, and is aware of the football activity around him.
While most project Bierria as a 2018 NFL Draft day three prospect, do not rule out a couple teams falling in love with the blue-collar, high work ethic caliber player. The NFL has seen what comes out of Washington recently. That is a huge plus in the very competitive NFL.
