A total of 84 players applied for early entry to the 2015 draft. More than half of them were selected in the first three rounds.
43 players were taken on Thursday and Friday, with 18 of them among the first 32 on Thursday night.
Some of the guys who gave up additional college eligibility may end up not being drafted, and the rules should allow them to return to college if they aren’t picked — as long as they haven’t hired an agent. But that would give colleges one less tool for persuading players to continue to play without fair compensation. If the colleges don’t want to give that up, the NFL definitely won’t push for it.
