View Full Version : Merged: Record-tying 53 underclassmen declare for draft

All-American defensive backs Eric Berry of Tennessee and Joe Haden of Florida are part of a record-tying 53 non-seniors eligible for this year's NFL Draft.

The 53 players match the previous high in 2008 but is a lower number than many projections. With the NFL and the players union in negotiations for a new collective bargaining agreement and the potential for a rookie wage scale being implemented, more juniors were expected to declare for this year's draft.

But it didn't really happen, even though the total is as high as it has ever been. Last year, 46 players declared early.


NFL Draft consultant Gil Brandt, who helped build the Dallas Cowboys in the 1960s, '70s and '80s, often advises the non-seniors that staying in school suits them best.

"I tell a lot of them that it's short-term gain for long-term loss if you come out early," Brandt said. "I look at so many of these guys who stay and then wind up like Brian Cushing and Michael Oher, and look at the great rookie years they had."
