With the college football season transitioning from the regular season to the postseason, we’ve tracked the underclassmen from teams in the west who have decided to forgo their remaining eligibility and declare for the 2023 NFL Draft.

Underclassmen must be out of high school for at least three years before they can request the NFL’s approval for special draft eligibility.

They had until Jan. 16 to renounce their college football eligibility by submitting written notification to the league office.

(Note: While some upperclassmen who have played three or more years also have remaining eligibility—and a decision to make—they did not need to declare as they are already preapproved to enter the Draft.)

The 88th NFL draft is scheduled to be held April 27-29, 2023 in Kansas City, Missouri, which will host the event for the first time.
