58 underclassmen granted special eligibility for 2024 NFL draft

The NFL draft will be in a little more than three months away.  It will include as many as 58 underclassmen.

The league announced that 54 players were granted special eligibility for the draft. They met the three-year rule (of being past high school) and have renounced their college football eligibility by submitting written notification to the league office on or before the Jan. 15 deadline.

Another four “underclassmen” were eligible because they completed their degree requirements in three years and notified the NFL.

Each of those players, grouped by position is listed below.
