For a pro prospect to meet the NFL’s eligibility requirement, he must be three years removed from high school and submit a written application to renounce his remaining college football eligibility. This includes redshirt sophomores, true juniors and fourth year juniors. The deadline for underclassmen to declare is Jan. 15, 2014. Afterwards, there is a three day period to rescind that and regain their college eligibility if they have not signed with an agent.

Michael Sam Heads Five Finalists For 2013 Bronko Nagurski Trophy

DALLAS (FWAA) – Five finalists for the 2013 Bronko Nagurski Trophy were announced this week by the Football Writers Association of America and the Charlotte Touchdown Club.
Vying for the honor of National Defensive Player of the Year are, in alphabetical order: Michigan Ste cornerback Darqueze Dennard, Pittsburgh tackle Aaron Donald, Florida St cornerback Lamarcus Joyner, Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley and Missouri end Michael Sam.

The winner will be announced on Dec. 9 and presented the Bronko Nagurski Trophy at a gala banquet at the Westin Hotel in Charlotte, N.C. Florida Coach Will Muschamp will give the keynote address.

In addition, the FWAA and Charlotte Touchdown Club will hand out the Bronko Nagurski Legends Award presented by Florida East Coast Railway. This year's winner is Georgia Tech defensive back Randy Rhino, a member of the FWAA's 1972 FWAA All-America team.
The FWAA award is named after Nagurski, who dominated college football at Minnesota as a bruising fullback and defensive tackle from 1927-29. He could have been an All-American at any position and was the best player wherever the coaches put him.

The FWAA has named a National Defensive Player of the Year since the 1993 season. One of the schools represented by the five finalists will win the award for the first time, although this is the third straight season Alabama has had a Nagurski finalist and Florida State has one for a second straight year. Pittsburgh and Michigan State have secured their initial Bronko Nagurski finalists. Alabama has had four previous finalists, Florida State three and Missouri one. But none of those schools have had a player win the award.

The Five 2013 Bronko Nagurski Trophy Finalists
Selected by the FWAA All-America Committee:

Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State (5-11, 197, Sr., Dry Branch, Ga.): A shutdown corner who has dominated Big Ten offenses this season for the Spartans, who rank tops in the country in total defense. He has made 38 tackles (19 unassisted) and two for losses of four yards. His 2013 resume includes three interceptions (38 return yards), seven pass breakups, four quarterback hurries and one forced fumble.

Aaron Donald, T, Pittsburgh (6-0, 285, Sr., Pittsburgh, Pa.): Probably the most productive defensive tackle in college football. Offensive coordinators stay up at night scheming to keep him away from the ball. The agile tackle leads the country in tackles for loss (22.5 for 112 yards in losses) by a whopping 4.5 tackles. Of those tackles for loss, 10 have been sacks. He also has forced four fumbles, broken up two passes and hurried the quarterback 14 times.

Lamarcus Joyner, CB, Florida State (5-8, 190, Sr., Fort Lauderdale, Fla.): Another top cornerback who can impress for the nation's second-ranked team. He has 51 tackles (36 unassisted), 6.5 tackles for 54 yards in losses, one interception (15 yards returned). In addition he has three forced fumbles, three passes broken up and two quarterback hurries. He played his best in Florida State's 51-14 defeat of ACC power Clemson when he made eight tackles (one sack), collected an interception and forced two fumbles.

C.J. Mosley, LB, Alabama (6-2, 232, Sr., Mobile, Ala.): The leader of top-ranked Alabama's defense that has held eight of 10 opponents to 10 or fewer points this season. He has 79 tackles (42 unassisted), seven of those for 15 yards in losses. In addition, he has five pass breakups, four quarterback hurries and one forced fumble. Alabama ranks fifth in the country in total defense, allowing just 272.8 yards a game.

Michael Sam, E, Missouri (6-2, 255, Sr., Hitchcock, Texas): A flashy end who has the penchant for making the big play in the big game. In Missouri's upset victory at Georgia, he returned a fumble 21 yards for a score. In three games this season, against Arkansas State, at Vanderbilt, and against Florida, he has registered three sacks. Sam ranks tied for fifth nationally in tackles for loss per game (1.6) and is tied for sixth in sacks on the season.

The Charlotte Touchdown Club is a non-profit organization founded in 1990 for the purpose of promoting high school, collegiate, and professional football in the Charlotte, N.C., region. The club's activities and services focus community attention on the outstanding citizenship, scholarship, sportsmanship, and leadership of area athletes and coaches. The official website of the Charlotte Touchdown Club is www.touchdownclub.com.

The membership includes journalists, broadcasters and publicists, as well as key executives in all the areas that involve the game. The FWAA works to govern areas that include gameday operations, major awards and its annual All-America team.

The Bronko Nagurski Trophy is a member of the National College Football Awards Association. The NCFAA encompasses the most prestigious awards in college football. The 21 awards boast 678 years of tradition-selection excellence. Visit ncfaa.org to learn more about our story.

NFL Supplemental Draft 2013 - July 11, 2013
Pro Prospects Supplemental Preview -
Free Issue for Full Subscribers - Available now

Prospects for NFL Supplemental Draft 2013
The NFL will conduct the Supplemental Draft 2013 on Thursday, July 11th for players who rescind their remaining college eligibility. This draft has been a short process annually that considers special situations for players that are at least three years removed from high school. All 32 teams will participate in the weighted process that is divided into three tiers with six prospects entered for this year’s selection draft. Teams with six wins or less from last season will make up the first group, followed by a second group of non-playoff teams and finally a third group of the twelve 2012 playoff teams. Each team submits the name of the players via email that they want to draft with the round they would like to select them. The club with the highest selection will be awarded the player. In the case of two teams drafting the same player in a round, the club with the worse record last season will win the prospect.
Any team that uses a selection in the Supplemental Draft will forfeit their choice in the corresponding round of the NFL Draft 2014. The new draft prospects will be considered part of the rookie salary pool along with the players from the NFL Draft 2013 and they must fit under the current contract structure and overall salary cap. Last summer, the Browns used their #2nd round pick on wideout Josh Gordon, the only overall selection chosen in the process.

Though most prospects in a Supplemental class provides little initial impact because of the late signing while missing all of the mini camp practices, several players have played key roles on their clubs. The Brown’s Josh Gordon flashed big play ability last fall when he scored 5 TDs with an impressive 16.1 yard average. He has the skill set to give them a true #1 receiver with an offseason behind him. The Raiders chose QB Terrelle Pryor in the 3rd round two years ago and he will compete for the starting job this summer in training camp.

Prospects for NFL Supplemental Draft 2013
These players are eligible for the supplemental draft as they were also eligible, but did not declare for entry in the NFL Draft 2013 and have lost their eligibility for the upcoming college season.
