107 Early Entrants For 2016 NFL Draft

A total of 96 underclassmen who met the NFL’s three-year eligibility rule and formally applied to enter the 2016 draft have been granted special eligibility, the league announced today in a press release. In addition to those 96, another 11 players who have graduated with college football eligibility remaining have also entered this year’s draft class.

This year’s total of 107 early entrants is a new record — in 2014, 98 underclassmen were granted special eligibility and four more were eligible after graduating early, for a total of 102. However, since the NFL doesn’t count players graduating early as underclassmen, 2014 will still officially hold the record, with 98 underclassmen to this year’s 96.
