Last January a record 74 underclassmen declared for the NFL Draft — or at least it was the record. When the dust cleared following Wednesday night’s 2014 deadline, there were 96 early entrant names submitted. That’s a nearly 30% increase from a record mark one short year ago.
Entrants by position: 19 wide receivers, 18 running backs, 11 tight ends, 8 defensive tackles, 7 cornerbacks, 7 safeties, 7 defensive ends, 6 linebackers, 4 quarterbacks, 4 offensive tackles, 3 guards and 2 centers.
