NFL will limit the number of underclassmen who can leave their school early

The NFL will limit the number of underclassmen who can receive evaluations for the draft to five from a single school, although special exceptions will be allowed.

Concerned about the record 107 underclassmen who applied for this year’s draft, and with 37 of them not selected, the league’s College Advisory Committee developed new guidelines for players considering forfeiting their final years of eligibility.

Only two schools, LSU and California, had more than five underclassmen in this year’s draft. Six of LSU’s seven players were chosen, while only two of the six from Cal were drafted.

This is not good news for players that attend schools such as Alabama, and LSU who are stacked with NFL talent. This could affect recruiting as well as well for players, but something needed to happen.  This is great news for the NFL and NCAA schools.
