The motto of today’s sports world is to strike while the iron is hot, and you can see that reflected in the largest number of early entries the NFL Draft has seen EVER. At least 94 underclassmen have made their declarations known for the 2014 NFL Draft, and will be skipping whatever eligibility of college football they had left to make the transition to the pros.
That means this is going to be a very deep draft, and teams picking at the bottom of the first round could be the biggest benefactors because there’s no real superstar at the top like Andrew Luck was, except for South Carolina Jadeveon Clowney and possibly some other wild card candidates.
Perhaps the best player in this year’s draft offensively is Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, just a redshirt sophomore who had one of the greatest two year stretches anyone has seen in college football history. We’ll do a full analysis of underclassmen declared, but here’s the list for those of you looking out, listed in alphabetical order.
