More than 100 players from dozens of NCAA institutions have publicly forgone remaining eligibility and declared for the 2022 NFL Draft as the deadline to declare passed on Monday. The impressive list includes Doak Walker Award winner Kenneth Walker III, Butkus Award winner Nakobe Dean and Ray Guy Award winner Matt Araiza, among other award winners. 

Once again, underclassmen are projected to rank among the top targets in the 2022 NFL Draft. Nine of the top 10 players on the CBS Sports Prospect Rankings are underclassmen, along with 24 of the projected top 32. Alabama junior offensive tackle Evan Neal projects as the No. 1 overall pick in mock drafts by Chris Trapasso and Josh Edwards. 

Because of the NCAA-granted extra year of eligibility, declaring for the draft looks a little different. Players from as far back as the 2015 recruiting class leave school with eligibility remaining. Numerous on-track seniors also publicly declared for the draft since they could conceivably return for another year of eligibility. 

While this tracker includes players listed on their rosters as underclassmen who publicly declared for the draft, the official list put out by the NFL could look a little different. Some players will already be ruled eligible after graduating or playing four years without the need to apply for early eligibility. 

The first round of the 2022 NFL Draft is scheduled for April 29, 2022, at Allegiant Stadium in Paradise, Nevada. It will continue on through April 30 with 259 total selections over seven rounds.
