“”The reality is that the NFL doesn’t care,” one Power 5 college assistant coach said. “At the end of the day, it’s about taking the best player, and they don’t see that as a big negative the way a college coach sees it.”
Another Power 5 head coach summed it up this way: “For players who are going in the first round? This is just a start.””
This is just the start. I fully expect to see a Sophomore who dominates in college to simply sit for a year instead of risking injury sometime in the next few years.
Eventually, it’ll lead to what I’ve always argued for, actual minor league football instead of kids going to school and not getting paid.
