A Look at the 56 Early Entries to the 2011 Draft

This year there will be a record number of underclassmen who have declared for the NFL draft. The CBA uncertainty probably contributed to the 56 early entries, as all of these young men must be aware that there will be a rookie pay scale in place in the coming years. It would take forever to breakdown all 56 prospects on this list, so I will simply post the list, and welcome any and all comments and evaluations.  Check out all of these intriguing prospects after the jump...

As you can see, there are some big time names here. One could even assume that seven or eight of the first 10 picks could be underclassmen.
