Eau Claire (WQOW) — Jordan Hagedorn is paying close attention to the NFL Draft, as he returns to his hometown to speak to students at North High School and DeLong Middle School, two schools he attended while growing up in Eau Claire.
Hagedorn, who is an NFL agent, had success with his first client, kicker Harrison Butker, who was selected by the Carolina Panthers in the 2017 NFL Draft. Butker was then released, but signed as a free agent with the Kansas City Chiefs. Butker kicked game-winning field goals in his Chiefs debut, as well as in the final regular season game, and was selected to the NFL All-Rookie team last season.
Hagedorn is hoping to get more clients onto pro rosters this season.
"I personally have five clients that I work with at BTI Sports," Hagedorn says, so we have five going into this draft, we have two that could be drafted, we have a couple guys who could go undrafted and there are some other prospects that need a little work and could get there in a year, but I get a smile on my face every day to be able to do what I love and work on football-related endeavors."
Hagedorn’s clients include Georgia Tech wide receiver Ricky Jeune, a college teammate of Butker’s, along with Temple offensive lineman Cole Boozer.
