There are many benefits of the NFL for college graduates. First of all, there is a great possibly of them being drafted by the National Football League to become professional football players. There is even more of a possibility of being recruited to play professionally if they played well while in college. If they were to get drafted, their career would be set; there would be no need to get a job or ever worry about money again. After signing that multi-million dollar contract, they would be established for life.
Another benefit of the NFL for college graduates is their degree. No matter what their degree may be in, it is often difficult to immediately find gainful employment following graduation. By being drafted into the NFL, these young people don’t have to worry about the stress of searching for employment. They can play professional football for approximately twelve-fifteen years, and then retire. At that time they’re still young enough to pursue a career in whatever industry they were interested before being recruited to play football. The career doesn’t even have to be in the same field that their degree is in, because they would have the option of doing whatever they wanted. But their degree would always be something that they could rely on if something were to happen and they could no longer play football. They wouldn’t be limited to finding a job, because first of all, they wouldn’t need to work. Why would someone with millions of dollars in the bank want to work for someone else? Secondly, they could use some of the money earned while playing football to start their own business, which is what a lot of retired players do anyway. Being that a lot of former pro football players aren’t even forty when they retire, they’re still young and full of energy; they need something to occupy their time since they’re so used to being kept busy.
Another benefit is that if recent graduates are drafted to play professional football, they get the opportunity to travel, meet new people, especially beautiful women, as well as become rich and famous. They will get to live in huge mansions, drive expensive sports cars, etc.
On the other hand, many recently retired football players may choose not to pursue a career outside of football. They may decide to become sports reporters, commentators, coaches, or some other sports-related official. If a college graduate can get noticed by the NFL, then they will have a great future ahead of them.
