Now that the deadline for underclassmen to declare has passed, we now know which of those prospects will be available for selection in the 2023 NFL draft.
The league released the full list of 69 players granted special eligibility for this year’s draft, headlined by some of this year’s top overall talents at every position.
Top quarterbacks like Alabama’s Bryce Young and Ohio State’s C.J. Stroud are among them, as well as elite defenders like Alabama’s Will Anderson and Georgia’s Jalen Carter.
That number is a slight drop from last year’s class, which saw 73 players granted special eligibility for the draft.
