There will be a few Major Surprises in the 2012 NFL Draft!

February 29, 2012 Leap-Year Day

The 2012 NFL Draft is Coming-Up and there will be some Surprises. The 2007 All-American Bowl Game had one major Surprise and then that Surprise was a #1 Draft Choice in the 2010 NFL Draft.

The 2007 All-American Bowl Game Classic had an interesting player in it. Coach John Shuman of Fork Union Military Prep called me one day in December and said that he had a great cover cornerback by the name of Kareem Jackson. He went on to tell me that he was a great player from Georgia, but he could never get him on any of the recruiting lists. Coach Shuman asked me if I would take a Prep School player and I told him that I would.

All-American Cover Cornerback Kareem Jackson

So, In the 2007 Third Annual All-American Bowl Game Classic, Kareem Jackson came to our first Monday practice, without a single scholarship offer, but he was impressive all week and was the “buzz” of all of the practices. Then after he recorded two interceptions in the 2007 All-American Bowl Game Classic on Saturday, he was offered a scholarship by the University of Alabama. Jackson, formerly from Macon Westside, Georgia and Fork Union Military Prep, would then start at cornerback for Alabama in two SEC Championship Games and was also the starting cornerback on the 2010 BCS National Championship Team. Jackson decided to come out one year early and he became a #1 Draft Choice in the 2010 NFL Draft for the Houston Texans.

About maxemfingerrecruiting

My mission and goal is to search for that hidden high school football talent that has not been found yet. I then evaluate him and try to help him to get some publicity. In 2003, 2004, 2005. and 2006, I hosted my Annual 7on7 National Championship. My goal was to get great athletes to one area where I could evaluate them and then help them with college coaches. The only drawback was that college coaches wanted to see the hidden gems in a game-type highlight film and so the college coaches suggested to me that I host a real All-American Bowl Game so that they could view these talented players in a highlight film, playing against other talented players. It's noted that the NCAA doesn't allow the college coaches to attend All-American Games or practices and so the Game Film is a great tool for the college coaches. In 2005, I hosted my 1st Annual All-American Bowl Game. In nine games in nine years, my wife and I have helped 549 HS football players to get a scholarship that came to our first Bowl Game practice without a single scholarship offer. This also does not count over 1,000 players who we have helped that did not play in our game, including over 100 players in the 2010 Recruiting Season. My Super Elite Top Gun Camp idealogy, is of course, to get as many Top Football Players to a Top Gun Camp so that all of my coaches and I can evaluate them, rate them, rank them, and promote them. There will always be "Diamonds in the Rough" to be found. My First Annual Max Emfinger's Super Elite Top Gun Camp was in July of 2010. The Camp was amazing and loaded with unknown and known talent. Many of them were invited to play in our 2011 All-American Bowl Game Classic. In 2007, in my 3rd Annual All-American Bowl Game, a player by the name of Kareem Jackson came to our first Monday practice, without a single scholarship offer. Jackson decided to come out early and he became a #1 Draft Choice in the 2010 NFL Draft for the Houston Texans.
