List of Early Entries Declaring for the 2009 Draft

This is a list of those declaring for the NFL Draft that should they not declare would still have at least one season of eligibility left. The rule's as they pertain to declaring for the NFL Draft states that a player must be a high school graduate for the duration of three college football seasons. Actual playing experience only matters when it comes to draft value. The complete list can be found here, but in the meantime I have choosen to list the more interesting prospects though truth be told it isn't really to long of a list at this point.

Underclassmen heading to NFL Draft - ESPN

On a personal note it feels kind of good to be gathering information on the draft again.

Declaring
Matthew Stafford - QB - Georgia
Knowshown Moreno - RB - Georgia
Chris Wells - RB - Ohio State
Darrius Heyward-Bey - WR - Maryland
Everette Brown - DE - Florida State
Josh Freeman - QB - Kansas State
Sen'Derrick Marks - DT - Auburn
Jeremy Maclin - WR - Mizou
Hakeem Nicks - WR - UNC
Andre Smith - OT - Alabama
Michael Crabtree - WR - Texs Tech
Percy Harvin - RB/WR - Florida (Unofficial but still likely)
LeSean McCoy - RB - Pitt

Returning
Sam Bradford - QB - Oklahoma
Gerald McCoy - DT - Oklahoma
Tim Tebow - QB - Florida (Undecided)
Colt McCoy - QB - Texas
Terrance Cody - DT - Alabama

Dumb move by Cody. He'll never be worth so much money.

As I understand it there aren't a whole lot of underclassment at those positions who would realistically be considered 1st or even 2nd rounders. The big fish, like Oher, Monroe and Mack, are all in their final year of eligibility, are they not??

I don't know to much about his pro prospects, but I got the feeling that he's either going to end up like either Big Ben or Byron Leftwich.

Re: List of Early Entries Declaring for the 2009 Draft

I think there will be a host of others from the game last night that will declare eligible for the draft.

Right now I'm really hoping to see Gerald McCoy, though he's projected to be a top 10 pick this year. However I'm having second thoughts about Duke Robinson, I mean our team already has enough problems staying disciplined that we really shouldn't be using a first round pick on a player that makes such stupid mental errors.

I don't know about that. Underclassmen/oversized DTs tend to get raped by the draft process. He might have ended up in the 3rd or 4th round for what the process might have done to him.

unless someone wants to use the wildcat offense, Tebow will probably end up more like Matt Jones

He looked ugly early but he settled down, and that lack of discipline is not the norm for him.

Any word on Taylor Mays (second coming of ST) safety from USC?

Re: List of Early Entries Declaring for the 2009 Draft

I don't get the Tebow projections. While I think he, more than anyone else but Bradford, really needs another year of college if he wants to play quarterback at the next level, I don't see anything inherent in his game that would make me think he can't be a professional quarterback.

Like most underclassmen, Tebow is probably unprepared right now for the trials and tribulations of an NFL quarterback, but if he ends up as a two time Heisman winner two time Nat'l Champ at Florida, a three year starter with considerable playing time as a Freshman, I don't see why he wouldn't be the great prospect he seems like he should be.

Same deal with Bradford. Stay in school, get a degree, refine your skills. If the reason for your success is because you are really talented and not because your team is really talented, you will continue to have tons of success in college.

Have you forgotten about the money? If a player is drafted high in the first round, then he will be an instant multi-millionaire. If either or both of them is projected to go high, then he needs to come out and take the money.

First of all, you can continue to play well in college and be a first rounder next year. Secondly, the second deal you get is the big money deal, so its more important to one's financial future to be good and successful at what they do then to be drafted high and not be as successful as they could be.

Finally, committing to the draft doesn't ensure you will be a high first round pick. It just ensures that you can't go back to college.
