One of the biggest elements of any college football season revolves around which players will be leaving college early as underclassmen and declaring for the NFL Draft. Below is the 2021 NFL Draft underclassmen tracker, which will highlight which college football players have already made declarations and who is considering their options leading up to the NFL Draft declaration deadline.

Tony Pauline has been reporting which college football players are considering leaving college early

Throughout the season, PFN Draft Analyst and Insider Tony Pauline has been publishing analysis and information regarding draft prospects, and we will continue to update this NFL Draft underclassmen tracker whenever we get more information.

For rumored college football declarations, please note that this is what Pauline was hearing at the time it was reported and has not been officially confirmed by the player nor the school. As with everything, especially NFL Draft prospects, situations can change. If anything does change, we will update our NFL Draft underclassmen tracker with the new information.

When is the NFL Draft declaration deadline?

The underclassmen declaration date for the 2021 NFL Draft has yet to be confirmed. However, expectations are that it will fall around January 18th, seven days after the National Championship. For the 2020 NFL Draft, the date was January 17th, with the National Championship having been played on January 10th.

How are things different in 2021?

The NCAA has granted each player another year of eligibility, adding complication to the process. Under normal rules, a player has five calendar years in which they can play up to four years of any sport. However, this new rule now means a player can play a fifth year, and their eligibility is spread across six calendar years and not five.

Therefore, heading into the 2021 NFL Draft, all players will have college eligibility remaining, essentially making them underclassmen, and will need to declare by the deadline. Additionally, NFL combine invites for senior prospects that have not yet declared will likely be delayed.

This also affects NFL scouts, who cannot interact with players with NCAA eligibility remaining. This could have an impact on the Tropical Bowl, which is traditionally held ahead of the declaration deadline. As it stands, scouts would not be able to interact with any FBS senior that had not officially declared.

What is the latest news that Tony Pauline is hearing regarding NFL Draft underclassmen? Which college football players are rumored to be leaving early and entering the 2021 NFL Draft?

On the December 30th episode of the Draft Insiders live show, Tony Pauline provided the following news and updates:

Trevon Moehrig, S, TCU: “Going to enter the draft. I believe TCU’s bowl game against Arkansas was canceled. I wouldn’t be surprised if he announces publicly within the next day or two that he is entering the draft.”

Chris Rumph, DE, Duke: “I hear that he is heavily leaning towards entering the draft.”

Jake Ferguson, TE, Wisconsin: “Jake Ferguson, the tight end, was 50-50, as I had reported a couple of weeks ago. I was told that he was telling people in his inner circle, that if he had a big bowl game then he was going to enter the draft. He was mediocre today. I still think he’s 50-50. I don’t think any decision has been made there.”

Jack Sanborn, LB, Wisconsin: “I’m told Sanborn, very likely, if not definitely going back to Wisconsin. Wants to play with his brother.”

Marlon Tuipulotu, DT, USC: “I’m told he is on the fence. He is the defensive tackle. He’s waiting for his grade from the advisory committee. I’m sure he is going to get a grade that says, “go back to school”. It’s basically he’s deciding whether going back to USC for another year is really going to elevate his draft stock. I’m told the decision is really about 50-50”

Budda Bolden, S, Miami: “I had been led to believe all along he was leaning towards entering the draft. I have heard he kind of has pulled back a little bit. There is some people that think he is 50-50, doesn’t know which way to go yet.”

Two such players are offensive tackle Spencer Brown and pass rusher Elerson Smith- both from Northern Iowa. I'm told Spencer Brown has looked terrific in the early going of training and is working out with Joe Staley, the six-time Pro Bowl tackle who recently retired.

I confirmed that earlier this week, where he has told people that he has already chosen an agent. Virginia Tech announced today (Wednesday) that they are opting out of the bowl games, they will not be playing in the postseason… so I think it is just a matter of how soon Christian Darrisaw publicly announces that he is going to enter the draft.” Week 15 College Football Gameday Blog: "In the lead-up to this weekend's contest, I was told it's about 80% the left tackle enters the draft.  Earlier today, a source close to the situation told me Darrisaw will enter the draft and has chosen an agent." Week 9 NFL Draft Stock: I graded Christian Darrisaw as a second-day selection over the summer, and the junior left tackle has not disappointed, playing steady football and showing improvement in his game. Darrisaw is a terrific pass blocker who is also very agile and effective in motion. While he needs to improve his finishing strength, Darrisaw has big upside. The feeling I get talking with people is that Darrisaw is leaning towards entering the 2021 NFL Draft after the season.

Now doyle is highly considered in some areas. He got a decent grade from some scouts coming into the season. Other places think he's more of a late round pick even a free agent, that's where i have him. He's a big guy he's got an upside, he would really benefit. Rugamba is a solid player, he's good athlete, he's got good size, but he really needs to improve on his corner technique. I think with both those guys, especially with Rugamba, there'll be some issues as to signing with an agent, will they allow them back into the fold? But i think you've got to make exceptions because the MAC had said they were canceling their season, they weren't playing until the spring, so the guy's got to prepare for his future if they come back to the football field in the fall like we're like it looks like they're going to you've got to make exceptions for those guys." Week 2 College Football Gameday Blog: Offensive tackle Tommy Doyle and cornerback Manny Rugamba of Miami (Ohio) are two MAC prospects who have already announced they’re bypassing the upcoming season to prepare for the draft.

Ford is a hard-hitting and explosive safety who plays a physical style of football and possesses tremendous ball skills.  His interception from just a few moments ago is indicative of Ford's style; burst to the pass out of his break, fight off receivers and come away with the ball.  I expect Ford to enter the draft and as mentioned earlier, he should move into the draft's second day.

I'm told Ridder has been very elusive about his decision.  Hudson is thinking about it, as is Sanders.  Of the three, it seems Sanders would be the most likely to enter.  He's an incredibly athletic pass rusher who also makes many plays in space but needs to add a bit of bulk and strength to his frame.

Zion JohnsonOLBoston CollegeReturning to SchoolACCSeniorDecember 23 Draft Insiders podcast: “Somebody close to the situation told me just this weekend, that they feel that there is a very good chance that Zion Johnson goes back. In fact, this person told me that he thinks Johnson is going to go back. The reason he is going to go back is because the coaches got him to believe that if he goes back and has a good season, he could be a first-round pick.” Week 16 College Football Gameday Blog: Two weeks ago during The Draft Insiders podcast, I reported coaches at Boston College were pushing hard for their top underclassmen to return in 2021. Tight end Hunter Long and center Alec Lindstrom were at the top of the list. As mentioned in that report, coaches were also trying to get BC seniors to use the additional year of eligibility the NCAA is extending. It may be working, as offensive lineman, Zion Johnson, a player I mentioned being targeted by coaches, is seriously considering a return to Boston College in 2021, according to sources. Week 15 College Football Gameday Blog: Boston College announced this week they will opt-out of the bowl season, so what can we expect from tight end Hunter Long?  I'm told while its about 90% Long ultimately enters the draft, I was also told the Boston College coaches are making the hard push for Long as well as his teammates to return for another season. This would include all seniors who are eligible for a fifth or sixth year on the field per NCAA waiver, including offensive lineman Zion Johnson, graded as a middle-round pick.

I think though, when all is said and done, Elijah Moore will probably enter the draft.” Week 15 College Football Gameday Blog: The situation is the same in Mississippi, where Lane Kiffin is not only attempting to retain junior receiver Elijah Moore, but is hoping to get fifth-year senior Kenny Yeboah to return for another season.  Yeboah elevated his draft stock this season and now grades as a Day 2 tight end.

Truth be told, Ojulari did receive a few fifth-round grades from scouts, but that was before the season began. It was a terribly low grade and it's disingenuous to try and make Ojulari believe he's a fifth-round prospect. December 9 Draft Insiders live show: "I'm told Ojulari is on the fence right now. The Georgia coaches are pushing hard to get him to return to Georgia." Week 7 College Football Gameday Blog: Ojulari is someone I’ve gushed over since the summer, and the red-shirt sophomore has seemingly improved weekly this season. What's the latest college football news on his draft status? I’m told Olujari is not really thinking about it right now but will go through the process when the season is over. Once he gets his draft grade back- which is likely to be a top 42 grade- people surmise he will make the jump.
Chris OlaveWROhio StateRumored to declareBig Ten JuniorWeek 9 College Football Gameday Blog: Considering he has Justin Fields tossing him passes and a host of talented pass catchers ahead of him on draft boards, it's unlikely Chris Olave will ever get the credit he deserves. I believe that will be true next April as Olave should get first-round consideration but will end up in the second. That was a terrific pass by Justin Fields but an even better catch for a touchdown by Olave. The junior is a game-breaking threat and a reliable receiver. The only ill in his game is Olave is slight of size and will struggle in press coverage at the next level. I'm told Olave's current plans include the 2021 NFL Draft. Week 14 College Football Gameday Blog: With the incredible talent at the top of next April’s receiver class, Olave is often the forgotten man. I do believe the junior could slide into the late part of the first frame, and from I’m told, he will make himself available for the 2021 draft. Since the start of the season, the word is Olave has already settled on representation.

Week 2 College Football Gameday Blog: Though no public decision seems imminent, it’s looking more and more likely Buffalo Bulls running back Jaret Patterson will enter the draft. With the MAC postponing their season to the spring of 2021, the belief from Patterson’s camp is there’s not much value returning for another season.

I'm told their official status for this fall is expected by next Tuesday. September 23 Draft Insiders podcast: "I'm told that the Miami Red Hawk coaches have told both of those players that if we play this wall they want them back and both of those players will return. Now doyle is highly considered in some areas. He got a decent grade from some scouts coming into the season. Other places think he's more of a late round pick even a free agent, that's where i have him. He's a big guy he's got an upside, he would really benefit. Rugamba is a solid player, he's good athlete, he's got good size, but he really needs to improve on his corner technique. I think with both those guys, especially with Rugamba, there'll be some issues as to signing with an agent, will they allow them back into the fold? But i think you've got to make exceptions because the MAC had said they were canceling their season, they weren't playing until the spring, so the guy's got to prepare for his future if they come back to the football field in the fall like we're like it looks like they're going to you've got to make exceptions for those guys."

Elerson Smith EDGENorthern IowaDeclared for the 2021 NFL DraftMVFC (FCS)SeniorWeek 4 College Gameday Blog: With a number of FCS Conferences postponing the season until next spring, several draftable prospects have decided to bypass the delayed start of the 2020 campaign and prepare for the draft. Two such players are offensive tackle Spencer Brown and pass rusher Elerson Smith- both from Northern Iowa. I'm told Spencer Brown has looked terrific in the early going of training and is working out with Joe Staley, the six-time Pro Bowl tackle who recently retired.
Jordan SmithLBUABDeclared for the 2021 NFL DraftC-USARS JuniorWeek 5 College Football Gameday Blog: Week 3 riser linebacker Jordan Smith continues to impress. He has one tackle for loss and one sack to his credit as the first quarter closed out. I've mentioned several times that Smith, who's just a junior, is leaning towards entering next April's draft. He's presently graded as a Day 2 pick on my board. September 3rd Draft Insider podcast: "I am told Smith is leaning towards entering the draft, if he has a big season. I think that early game from Miami can dictate which way he is going to go. Especially if he has a big contest against the Hurricanes."

So who’s next for UT? Sources tell me is could be another defensive back: Josh Thompson. Thompson is a talented defensive back who has played both cornerback and safety for Texas. He has solid size/speed numbers and large upside. Coming into the season, I graded the junior as a sixth-round prospect.

Yet Jalen Tolbert has been his usual reliable self with two receptions for 20 yards to start the game. During the previous five games, Tolbert totaled 32 receptions, 524 yards, and five touchdowns. He's a long pass catcher with dependable hands and a solid game. Only a junior, I'm told there's a real good chance Tolbert enters the draft at season's end.

It’s basically he’s deciding whether going back to USC for another year is really going to elevate his draft stock. I’m told the decision is really about 50-50." Week 16 College Football Gameday Blog: Sources tell me junior defensive tackle Marlon Tuipulotu, who I graded as a sixth-round prospect before the season, is expected to enter the draft. Tuipulotu is a quick three-technique type who finished with 23 tackles and 2 sacks this season.

Pro WellsTETCUDeclared for the 2021 NFL DraftBig 12JuniorWeek 13 College Football Gameday Blog: Wells is someone I graded as a PFA over the summer as he’s a big, mobile tight end with terrific speed but limited production. As a sophomore last year, Well posted 17 receptions and five TD’s and his production this season has been pedestrian considering there’s no dominant receiver on the TCU roster. I’m told Wells is seriously considering entering the 2021 NFL Draft, which would be a mistake, in my opinion. While I love his natural skills and upside, Wells must really elevate his production; otherwise, he’ll be a late-round selection.

Seth WilliamsWRAuburnRumored to declareSEC JuniorWeek 13 College Football Gameday Blog: Surtain’s play this season has been inconsistent, but he was dominant against Kentucky last week. Both Williams and Schwartz have displayed progress on the field this season; Williams has become the focal point of the offense as a dependable big-bodied wideout, while Schwartz’s home-run-hitting speed offers big-play ability for the Tigers. The contrasting styles pose a challenge for Surtain. I expect Surtain and Williams to enter the draft, while I’m told Schwartz is giving serious consideration to doing the same.

Zach WilsonQBBYUDeclared for the 2021 NFL DraftIndependentJuniorDecember 23 Draft Insiders podcast: “I think it would be a major shock if he doesn’t enter the draft. If I’m going to put a percentage on it, I’m going to say it's about 99% that he (Zach Wilson) enters the Draft. I know that his father has been doing a lot of work. His father has spoken with people, including John Dorsey,… talking about different agents. His father is laying a lot of groundwork.” November 26 Draft Insiders podcast: "Zach Wilson, I am told he has been taking agent meetings in the past couple of weeks, so he is getting a jump on his next level decision. As we talked about, you know he was going to wait till after the season, get his draft grade, get his opinions. But I'm told he's already started the process of speaking and interviewing agents. So I mean, there is no official word, speculatively you could expect Zach Wilson to enter the draft, primarily because he's had such a tremendous season there's so much talk about him being a top 12 pick. If he doesn't enter the draft, it will be a major surprise." Week 10 NFL Draft rumors and news: We are still very early in the process, and there are no guarantees Zach Wilson enters the draft. As I said a few weeks ago, he will go through the process once the season is over. That being said, there are a lot of teams who like Wilson.
