Early Entrants For 2015 NFL Draft

A year ago, a record 102 NCAA underclassmen gained eligibility for the 2014 NFL draft. 98 players were able to declare their intent to enter the draft because they were three years removed from graduating high school, while four others – including quarterback Teddy Bridgewater – were eligible because they graduated a year early.

The number of early entrants in the NFL draft has been on the rise for the last several years, so it wouldn’t be a surprise to see that number break the three-digit mark again for 2015. And with the college football season already over for many schools, players have begun to announce their decisions to forgo their senior seasons and pursue an NFL career.

We’ll use this post, which can be found anytime on our right-hand sidebar under “PFR Features,” to track those underclassmen who have confirmed their intent to enter 2015’s draft. Here’s the current list of early entrants for the draft, which will continue to be updated for the next several weeks. Players are listed in alphabetical order:

    Thanks for the list been looking for this. I think 100+ underclassmen will soon be the norm in a few years.

    I count 74. So unless a serious push in final day comes, should fall short of last year’s # (98 was it?)

      It does look like the final number will fall short of last year’s, though it’s also possible that there are a number of players who have filed the paperwork and just not publicly announced it. I believe the official list comes out on Monday, so we should know soon!
