2017 NFL Draft: more than 100 underclassmen declare for selection

New, comments

The Bills won’t shy away from underclassmen.

The 2017 NFL Draft take place in Philadelphia from April 27 to 29 and with three months to go we have the official list of underclassmen who have declared. The deadline too submit an application was earlier this month.

With the Buffalo Bills’ first pick in each of the last three drafts being underclassmen, it’s proof general manager Doug Whaley won’t shy away from these players. (Even if the team doesn’t begin scouting them until after they declare for some reason.) Buffalo selected three underclassmen in 2016; edge rusher Shaq Lawson in the first round, quarterback Cardale Jones in the fourth, and running back Jonathan Williams in the fifth.
