Early NFL Declarations for the Draft

Kyle Rudolph will have a lot of company (51 total) with those college men deciding to forego education and seek fame and $$$ in the NFL. He is the only early TE, although Michael Floyd would have joined a group of eight WRs.

Good Luck Kyle. Thanks for the memories.  God Speed.

Last season, 53 underclassmen entered the 2010 NFL Draft. That number tied a record for most underclassmen in the draft. In 2009, 46 declared. In 2008, there were those 53.

Here is the final tally. Those six listed in bold red would have faced the Irish in 2011.
