I've been thinking about this. It would seem that all the hullabaloo about a "record" number of underclassmen declaring this year was much ado about nothing. But I have to wonder. Over 150 underclassmen petitioned the NFL for an estimate on their draft status. Now, if the NFL wanted, couldn't it lowball these kids with estimates for this year and give them a higher estimate for their senior year as a way to limit the number of underclassmen who come out? And, isn't it in the NFL's best interested to not have a "record" number of underclassmen (they were predicting 75-100) because it dilutes the future drafts AND the future drafts could have more limitations on the salary for the top 15 picks? Just seems to me that if the NFL is the one providing these kids with the info that its a conflict of interest.
