2012 NFL Draft: Official List of Declared Underclassmen

Written By Mark Scott

The deadline for underclassmen to declare for the draft has passed by and a total of 65 prospects have officially declared for the 2012 NFL Draft. The group is led by the ACC with 15 players, while the SEC has 12 draft eligible underclassmen. Of the record 65 prospects, 25 of them have first round grades and could really dominate the first two days of the draft. Players like Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, Matt Kalil, Morris Claiborne and Justin Blackmon headline the group. In the end there were some surprises like potential early first round selections Matt Barkley, Landry Jones and Manti Te’o deciding to return to school, while Darron Thomas, Brock Osweiler and a number of ACC players chose to enter the draft despite mostly unfavorable draft grades as of right now.
