John Iii Franklin,
A compelling view--even if it did, at times, seem more like a promotional video for IMG than anything else.
I learned quite a bit about the draft process that college football players go through--and this is probably the most interesting thing about this film. Believe it or not, most of their college career turns out to count for very little and the process by which they are assessed does seem a bit like watching people buying cars! However, the film also seemed, at times, like a promotional film for the IMG Academy and their services.
The film centers on four NFL prospects who all worked with IMG to help them train and best present themselves in the upcoming draft. Travis Wilson, Clint Ingram, DonTrell Moore and Derek Hagen are not typical of the guys you usually associate with the draft. It's unlikely any of them will go in the first round but they are expected to be drafted in the mid to late rounds--and these sort of guys often get very little attention from the media. The film tracks their efforts and follows them through the draft days. And, by the film ends, you learn a tiny bit about their first forays into the NFL. However, since this came out on video shortly after the draft, you will need to read up on the guys to find out how well they eventually did.
