NFL Draft declaration tracker 2020: Full list of underclassmen leaving college football early

Sporting News — (Zac Al-Khateeb)

College football's bowl season is over, as is the period of time in which draft-eligible players must decide whether to forgo their remaining eligibility and leave early for the NFL Draft.

This year, 111 confirmed underclassmen announced their intent to leave school early, matching the record mark set for the 2019 NFL Draft (they have a three-day grace period before the league sends its approved list to all 32 teams). If that figure holds, it will continue for the fourth straight year the trend of at least 100 underclassmen declaring early (106 players declared in 2018, 103 in 2017 and 107 in 2016).

Sporting News tracked each of the top college football underclassmen who will forgo their final seasons of eligibility to leave for the NFL:
