2013 NFL Draft: League officially accepts record 73 underclassmen

2013 NFL Draft: League officially accepts record 73 underclassmen

By Rob Rang | The Sports Xchange/CBSSports.com

The NFL officially recognized a record 73 underclassmen as having been granted special eligibility into the 2013 draft, releasing the list on Saturday morning.

The list includes all of the big names NFLDraftScout.com has noted will ultimately dominate the draft like Texas A&M offensive tackle Luke Joeckel, the top-rated prospect. It also includes a few surprises, including Purdue linebacker Dwayne Beckford, Ohio State wide receiver Duron Carter and Central Florida's behemoth defensive tackle, Jose Jose.

Players willing to give up their collegiate eligibility to enter the draft had to contact the league with their wishes by last Tuesday. Players are given a few days to reconsider (assuming they haven't signed with an agent), which is why the list wasn't released by the league until Saturday.

For information on virtually all of the players listed below as part of the league's official release, simply check out NFLDraftScout.com's Underclassmen Tracker or NFLDraftScout.com's overall player and position rankings.
