Now celebrating nine years serving the top agencies in pro football and their representatives, ITL Services brings its clients the very best in education and counseling on all aspects of NFL Scouting Combine interview preparation. NFL draft prospects at all levels and geographical regions have benefited from ITL Services to enhance their market standing and draft status.
On the playing field, it’s almost impossible to win without knowing an opponent’s game plan as well as having one of your own. The same is true of the interview room. At ITL Services, we relate the strategies used by NFL teams in one-on-one information-gathering sessions to our clients, using experts who’ve conducted the interviews themselves. Our extensive system of collecting information from previous NFL Combine invitees gives us a rich palate of ‘do’s and don’ts’ to provide to our clients. We do not rest until we know our clients are confident, self-assured, and ready for Indianapolis.
The ITL Services team includes:
Stratton launched Inside the League in 2002. In the nine years since, ITL has become the leader in providing services and information to NFL clients and counts essentially every major NFL contract representation firm and financial planning service as a client. Stratton has spoken at several schools (Illinois, Rice, James Madison University among them) and counts several more as advisees, and has an extensive background in all-star game management. He took a brief hiatus from Inside the League to accept a position as Executive Director of the 2008 Cornerstone Hula Bowl; he will also work with a game in January in the lead-up to the 2011 NFL Draft. While in college, Stratton played linebacker briefly at the U.S. Naval Academy.
