  1. Four regular rounds’ worth by my calculations. Lotta disappointment ahead for much of these folks unfortunately

  2. Crapshoot for most. Maybe a shot as an undrafted free agent. Makes for a long and difficult road.

  3. I don’t understand all these early entries. Someone is likely giving them some bad advice. Unless you’re a sure-fire first round pick why not return to school and spend another year developing (and maybe finish your degree) so you can get drafted higher next year? Once these guys leave school what are they going to do if they don’t make an NFL team?

  4. So Many of these guys don’t make NFL teams or get drafted. Should stay in school another season instead.

  5. Agree that alot wont get drafted. And many of the opt outs will go lower than projection based on they already quit on teammates once.
