More Than Enough Players

There has been 96 underclassmen to declare for the NFL draft in 2014, and that is a new record. LSU alone had seven players alone declare.

To put in some perspective, if every underclassmen is drafted then 43-percent of the 2014 Draft will be underclassmen. That’s almost half, and no game to showcase half the talent in the class is not very efficient.

For these 96 kids an All-Star game could be the last time to show their God-given ability on the football field to scouts and themselves. Stocks rise and fall in these games, and I’m sure they would love the opportunity to make one or the other happen.
