Usually, I like to get the number of players with draftable grades in line with the number of draft picks, around 255. That’s going to be impossible this year. People talk about the depth of this year’s draft class. That depth has been created in large part due to the NCAA extending another year of eligibility to all players because of the 2020 COVID season. As a result, there are many more super seniors in this year’s class who had draftable grades in 2021 but bypassed the draft to spend another year on the college field. This phenomenon will likely occur through the 2024 NFL Draft.
