6 College Football Stars Who Shouldn't Have Entered 2014 NFL Draft

Oregon's De'Anthony Thomas could have used another season of college football.

This weekend shapes up as the biggest moment in a number of college football players’ young lives.

The NFL draft begins Thursday night, and over three days and seven rounds, 256 players will hear their names called as the NFL’s newest draftees.

The possibility of disappointment, however, looms over the entire process.

Ninety-five underclassmen declared for the draft, for a variety of reasons, and it is almost a certainty that not all of them will be selected in the three-day draft.

A year ago, 73 underclassmen declared, and 17 went undrafted. With this draft being hailed as one of the deepest in recent memory, it goes to figure that more underclassmen will be disappointed this weekend.

For every Jadeveon Clowney, Sammy Watkins or Johnny Manziel who validates his choice with a high selection, there will be a player scrambling for a late-round slot or signing a free-agent deal late Saturday night.

Here’s a look at some underclassmen who made a mistake by declaring early for the NFL draft.
