86 underclassmen applied for thr 2015 NFL Draft

The official numbers are out today, and 86 underclassmen applied for the NFL Draft. Well according to Pro Football Talk, 33 players were told they were not a top 3 round player but they entered anyway.

The number of underclassmen requesting an official NFL pre-draft evaluation fell from 214 in 2013 to 149 in 2014. While some may see this as players making more informed decisions about their futures, others could interpret the decline as fewer players choosing to factor the NFL’s assessment into their final decision.

According to the source, there were six official first-round evaluations this year, and all six players declared. Of 20 second-round evaluations, 14 entered the draft.

Of the 149 underclassmen who were evaluated, 123 of them were advised to stay in school (which apparently is the advice given to players not pegged for rounds one or two). Thirty-three of them ignored the advice.
