Final List of Early NFL Draft Entrants

A total of 40 college players have declared for the NFL Draft, leaving prior to their final year(s) of eligibility.  Many of the players listed below could have a direct effect on the Detroit Lions, whether they are drafted to play in the Motor City or not.  Some are serious possibilities to be drafted by Detroit at #2 or even later on in the draft.  Others will affect Detroit in the sense that the Raiders could very well take one of the early entrants.  That could take away one of the Lions' potential picks and at the same time determine whether a team would want to trade up with Detroit.  Whatever does happen come April will unfold in the coming months.  Until then, here is the final list of the early entries.
