NFL to limit evaluations of underclassmen for draft

The NFL is making new restrictions on the number of underclassmen who can receive evaluations for the draft, allowing just five from a single school.

The league’s College Advisory Committee made this ruling in response to the record 107 underclassmen who applied for this year’s draft, and the 37 who weren’t selected.

Troy Vincent, the league’s head of football operations, said underclassmen will be advised based on their potential to be picked in the first two rounds, or be advised to stay in school.
