View Full Version : Draft question

Let's say a junior declares eligibility and then get drafted by some team let's say the Raiders. Are they able to refuse to sign with the team and return to school then next year. If they do could they pull a Bo Jackson and get drafted by a different team or would that team still have their rights?

Bump. I'm guessing no one has any idea.

Once you declare eligible and get drafted the team that drafted you retains your rights until the next draft if you don't sign. Then any team can draft you.

(like Bo Jackson)

I don't think a college or the NCAA will allow you to play out your final year of eligibility in that scenario, but either way it wouldn't affect your draft status with the NFL.

Once you declare for the draft, you can no longer play in NCAA.

I think this was an issue with that Crabtree guy on the 49ers...if they didn't sign him by a certain point he would be reentered in the next years draft.
