The NFL Combine is scheduled from February 22-28. The Pro Day schedule will start only four days later when Missouri University will hold the first on campus workout for NFL prospects.

Pro Day workouts are held on campus at school facilities. The interview and medical testing components are addressed at the NFL Combine. The athletic drills, 40-yard dash, vertical leap, broad jump, bench press, 3-cone drill, etc. can take place at either event. It has become a chance for athletes not invited to the NFL Combine to show their talent in front of NFL personnel decision-makers.

Interestingly, the Pro Day dates for Stanford and Baylor are both scheduled for March 22nd with the top passers Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III both expected to perform. They are the top two QBs with Luck most likely the top overall selection and Griffin probably going in the top four or five overall choices. National champion Alabama's Pro Day was announced yesterday, as well.

The 65 underclassmen set a new record for young players entering the NFL Draft. Each of the 65 players has met the league's three-year eligibility rule, and each has submitted a written application in which he renounced his remaining college football eligibility. The deadline for receiving applications was Jan. 15.

Last January, a record 56 underclassmen declared for the NFL Draft 2011. For the NFL Draft 2010, 53 underclassmen decided to turn pro early. Prior years had 53 in 2009 draft, 40 in 2008, 48 in 2007, 49 in 2006, 43 in 2005, 54 in 2004, 43 in 2003, 54 in 2002 and 31 in 2001.

Richardson, Randle, Kirkpatrick & Claiborne Join NFL Draft

Ranked by value

Today is the final declaration date for the NFL Draft 2012. The ranks of the underclassmen added many blue chip prospects with players from the national champion title game with Alabama’s Trent Richardson, Dre Kirkpatrick and Donta Hightower and LSU’s Morris Claiborne, Reuben Randle and Michael Brockers all opted to declare for the NFL Draft 2012. Richardson is coming off an outstanding performance where he was the workhorse for the Tide ground game.

Kirkpatrick, Hightower, Claiborne and Bookers all strengthen a talented defensive group that should dominate the early rounds of the draft. Kirkpatrick and Claiborne are the top two cornerbacks and figure in the top of the first round. There postseason performances will determine who emerges as the top overall corner prospect. LB Hightower was a key defender in the dominant Tide defense and is expected to be among the top linebackers and possible 1st round selection with a strong postseason. DT Brockers was a surprising addition to this class. He has excellent physical skills that will warrant an early selection despite raw talent at this point of his career. He has enormous upside potential as an interior defender.

The BCS national title game will produce several blue chip underclassmen that will have a huge impact on the early rounds of the NFL Draft 2012. The national title game has produced 5 top prospects for the NFL Draft 2012 with most players already having made their decisions about turning pro.

We will have daily updates to the list this week with an extensive underclassmen report in our January 2012 Newsletter out next week. Players have three days after the January 15th deadline to rescind their decision and return to the college ranks. LSU wideout Russell Shepard has already changed his mind and returned to the college ranks for his final season in college.

Baylor's QB Robert Griffin Enters NFL Draft 2012

TE Orson Charles Declares for the NFL Draft
Top Underclassmen - Pro Prospects 2012 - Updated Jan. 11th

Photo - QB Robert Griffin - Baylor

With the declaration date of January 15th fast approaching for the NFL Draft 2012, the ranks of the underclassmen continued to increase as Baylor QB Robert Griffin stated his intentions to enter the pro game. Griffin is coming off a Heisman Trophy winning season where he made a huge difference weekly for the resurgent Baylor program.

With the college season completed after Alabama shutout #1 LSU for the BCS national title, a number of blue chip underclassmen from those teams can have a huge impact on the early rounds of the NFL Draft 2012. I expect at least 6 top prospects from the BCS title game to enter the NFL Draft 2012.

We will have daily updates to the list this week with an extensive underclassmen report in our January 2012 Newsletter out next week.
