Declared Underclassmen for the NFL Draft 2019

Declared Underclassmen – NFL Draft 2019

The declaration date for underclassmen for the NFL Draft 2019 came at 4 pm Jan. 15th – Players have an additional three days to decide to either declare or change their minds with the Jan. 18th date final. No player rescinded their decision last year. The NFL office will announce the official Underclassmen list on Friday, Jan. 18th.

The usual high number of quality running backs, tight ends and wide receivers declared for this class and will have a strong impact on the early rounds. The defensive line will have a big impact from the underclassmen group with several potential first round prospects. The line and edge rushers will provide a high number of top selections with several blue-chip prospects at important positions. With the rookie salary cap reduced for the upcoming seasons, this class surpassed every group of third year players entering the pro ranks. Currently, they are over 130 underclassmen expected to enter the NFL Draft 2019.

In 2018, there were a record 106 players granted special early eligibility with the previous record for early entrants at 98 in the 2014 NFL Draft. Each of the players granted special eligibility has met the league’s three-year eligibility rule and each has submitted a written application in which he renounced his remaining college football eligibility.
