Full list of underclassmen who declared for 2021 NFL Draft

The 2021 NFL Draft process begins, and the deadline for underclassmen to declare is today. We break down who is in this year’s early entry class

The 2021 Sugar Bowl had two starting quarterbacks that are both early entry candidates, and might end up as the No. 1 and No. 2 picks in the 2021 NFL Draft. Trevor Lawrence of Clemson and Justin Fields of Ohio State are currently favored to be the first two picks in the draft, going to the Jacksonville Jaguars and New York Jets respectively.

The close of the college football season means we start to move forward in the draft evaluation process, where players can shore up their draft status or just get on the radar in the first place. But due to COVID-19, the NFL Combine is canceled.

In between, the NFL has announced the formal list of underclassmen that have declared for the 2021 NFL Draft. An individual has to be three years removed from high school before they can declare for the draft, so the underclassmen will include players who have completed their junior or redshirt sophomore season.

Below is the full list of players that have declared for the 2021 NFL Draft as underclassmen:
