No Supplemental Draft this year

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

 

It had the potential to be wild, with all the questions about CFB this year. I wasn't aware the league had the option of skipping it, but apparently they do.

Good move, as you say could have just led to massive issues at a time when the league have much bigger decisions to make.

The Supplemental Draft would've been interesting this year if they made a one year, covid-19, exception and allowed sophomores and redshirt freshmen to enter the draft due to the uncertainty of the 2020-21 college football season.

This kinda got swept under the rug, but this was a scummy move by the NFL. They did this to purely please the NCAA.
 

If college football doesn’t happen, it screws a lot of guys over stuck in limbo.

Of course they did - it's a free farm system, they're going to do everything to keep the NCAA (and keep costs at $0).

It’s why I don’t think college football will pay players.
 

College football would in theory become a competitor with the NFL.

Not really. What would they do try and explain why suddenly 80% of college players are getting doctoral degrees? They would still have the same setup just ths kids would make some cash.
