53 & counting; underclassmen deadline passes

The deadline for eligible underclassmen to declare for this April's NFL-draft passed this afternoon. And even though the official list is not expected to be released by the league until late this week, already a record number of players are jumping to the NFL.

At last count 53 players have officially declared themselves eligible for April's draft and we are still waiting for word on another half-dozen.  We expect a few last minute stragglers to push the number towards 60.

The official list won't be released until Thursday at the earliest.  Underclassmen who have submitted paperwork to enter the draft but did not sign with an agent can reverse their original choice up until Wednesday.
