College Football's Biggest Winners and Losers from NFL Draft Declarations

The loss of Blake Bortles (left) and Storm Johnson will be hard for Central Florida to overcome.

The door has closed on another year of early entries into the NFL draft, and boy was it a long list.

A record 96 underclassmen tossed out their remaining collegiate eligibility, according to the list compiled by Sports Illustrated. The position breakdown is as follows:

  • 4 quarterbacks
  • 18 running backs
  • 19 wide receivers
  • 11 tight ends
  • 9 offensive linemen
  • 15 defensive linemen
  • 6 linebackers
  • 7 cornerbacks
  • 7 safeties

While most of the names aren't surprises, considering how great a year they had in 2013, there were some (anyone here heard of California running back Brendan Bigelow? Anyone?) that seemed odd.

With this annual talent exodus over and done with, it's now time to take inventory and see which college football teams fared the best and worst from the lure of pro contracts.
