NCAA and the NFL Draft
Interesting news regarding one player...
There are so many directions this could turn...
Does the NCAA let kids go through the draft process and then if the kid is unhappy with the results go back to school? Does it allow only for the undrafted? What about the drafted kids? I would think a drafted player allowed to go back to college would piss off the nfl, especially someone drafted in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th rounds which are generally players earmarked for an immediate spot in the 2 deep. Does it evolve to a NHL type situation where NHL teams routinely draft 17 year old kids and then hold onto their rights while they play in minor leagues/college until they are proficient enough to become part of the highest league? I could see some serious benefits to all parties in a system like that like the athlete having a market he can advertise for while he is in college since that is now allowable under NCAA rules while being in college. The NCAA may be able to hold onto guys a little longer since kids would be getting more serious compensation and it wouldn't be so pressing for kids to go to the nfl. The nfl benefits by having more polished and ready prospects by the time they join up.
