NFL announces list of underclassmen who declared for 2019 NFL Draft

This year’s group is strong in offensive tackles and tight ends.

On Friday, the NFL announced the list of underclassmen who declared for the 2019 NFL Draft. 106 athletes filled out the paperwork, continuing a recent trend of triple digits turning pro. This year’s underclassmen are especially talented at tight end, where the class is expected to be as good as it’s been in 10 or 20 years. They’re also shoring up talent deficiencies at positions that were otherwise weak, like at quarterback. Dwayne Haskins and Kyler Murray give teams hope that they could find a franchise quarterback, while Tyree Jackson and Daniel Jones are physically talented lottery tickets.

The underclass group is also talented at offensive tackle, where Jonah Williams, Juwaan Taylor, Cody Ford, and David Edwards each represent potential first round picks in April.
