    I know that early round prospects get loans from their agents to live on, but what about late round prospects/UDFA, how do they get by? they receive a $5,000 - $10,000 signing bonus when drafted/signed, with no guarantee that they'll make a team, do agents still lend them money?

    If anyone of you has some insight I'd love to know about it

    These men are amateurs, student-athlete scholars of the highest order. LOL. Okay but seriously...

    They don't need to get any money. The school pays for their workout facilities, training and housing as long as they are still enrolled. Teams pay for the players to fly out to meet with and/or work out for team executives at the team facilities. Guys only need money if they want to make expensive purchases that most draft-eligible players shouldn't be making.
