2016 NFL Draft Underclassmen Tracker


Last year, we saw the five year trend of new record number of underclassmen declaring end, seeing 80 players leave college early compared to 100 for the 2014 NFL Draft.

While we’re hoping the trend of declaring early continues downwards and we DON’T hit 100 declarees, it wouldn’t surprise at all.

Track here for which players declare, by position, our grades on them as they declare, and our article catalog of each player in our 2016 NFL Draft Underclassmen Tracker.
