2024 NFL Draft Early Declaration Tracker: Running List of Declarations, Draft Declaration Deadline Info

NFL Draft Early Declaration Tracker Overview

As the 2024 NFL Draft draws near, our comprehensive NFL Draft Underclassmen Tracker is your go-to source for the latest information on prospects deciding whether to enter the draft. This year marks a departure from the previous uncertainty regarding the deadline for underclassmen to declare their intentions, providing a much more transparent framework.


Eligibility Landscape Post-COVID-19

The eligibility landscape has been complex following the NCAA's decision to grant an extra year of eligibility due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This resulted in a varied approach by educational institutions in listing their athletes' class years. Some schools advanced their players as per the usual progression, ignoring the extra year, while others retained athletes in their expected year of eligibility post-2021 season. As we move forward, the impact of these COVID-affected classes on eligibility is lessening.


Tracking Underclassmen Decisions

Our 2024 NFL Draft early declaration tracker aims to simplify this complexity. It includes decisions from players who have either accepted an All-Star game invitation post-season or have publicly declared their draft intentions or their decision to continue in school. To further clarify, we list these athletes based on their official class/year as per their school's roster page. This could result in scenarios like a "sophomore declaring for the draft" who is actually in their third year or a "redshirt senior" still having an additional year of eligibility.


2024 NFL Draft Declaration Deadline

The deadline for declaring for the 2024 NFL Draft is firmly set for January 15, 2024. This contrasts with 2022's special deadline and establishes a clear cut-off for underclassmen to apply for Special Eligibility with the NFL. Adding to the excitement, for the first time, underclassmen are eligible to participate in prestigious events like the 2024 East-West Shrine Game and the 2024 Reese's Senior Bowl. The list of all underclassmen approved for the 2024 NFL Draft will be distributed to all 32 NFL teams by January 20, 2024.
