Record Number of Underclassmen Expected for NFL Draft 2019

Declared Underclassmen for the NFL Draft 2019

Frank Coyle/ Head scout

The upcoming NFL Draft is attracting another strong group of underclassmen. Last year a record number of underclassmen decided to turn pro with well over a 100 prospects entering the NFL ranks. This year will probably surpass those numbers with only a few days before the Jan. 15th deadline. Expect many new additions here over the next few days with the end of the bowl season. This draft class will be a very heavy defensive talent group from both the underclassmen and senior classes.

Draft Insiders’ January Newslettter will be available next week – All Underclassmen, 2 Round MD, and new Top 100 Pro Prospects

In addition, to the large number of underclassmen entering the pro ranks, many players are opting out of their bowl game to prepare for the demanding NFL Draft postseason, both the All-star weeks and NFL Combine and pro day events. These players have increased in recent years and this is a disturbing recent development with key players ending their college careers with their team’s most important postseason game on the agenda.
