Stars of the Future Prepare For Relocation
In the words of the ancient Greek playwright Aristophanes, “A man’s homeland is wherever he prospers.” Now that the first round of the NFL Draft has concluded, thirty-two young men now have a new home in which to prosper.

Who are the winners and losers in the first round? Only time will tell which teams actually made wise picks and which draft choices will become the next superstars of the NFL, but one thing is for sure, that these thirty-two former college stars are now suddenly wealthy or will be shortly after signing contracts and are facing some major financial decisions.
Most of these young men are already in the city of their new team holding press conferences and meeting with coaches and general managers to discuss the immediate future. Life becomes rather hectic for these players now as they only have a couple months to find suitable housing for themselves as well as move their possessions to their new city and make financial decisions based on their new wealth. The excitement of being in the limelight during the draft will soon wear off and they will be faced with some very important decisions regarding their immediate future.
