2023 NFL Draft prospects that benefit most from return to college

College prospects that give up their eligibility early to pursue their professional dreams largely dominate the early rounds of the NFL Draft. Of the over 200 that entered the 2022 NFL Draft process, a total of 100 did so while foregoing some sort of collegiate eligibility.

For some, the move to declare early is a smart business decision. They leave in their redshirt sophomore or junior year knowing that they have little left to prove for their collegiate team. Some will even sit out of a bowl game, especially if it is a non-College Football Playoff or New Year’s Six tilt.

There are those college players that make the prudent decision to take advantage of whatever collegiate years they have left. Perhaps returning for an extra year instead of entering the draft provides them with the opportunity to earn real starting time and, thus, produce more films. Others will decide to transfer, hoping that a change of scenery can bolster their outlook. Whatever the reason may be, there are plenty of players that return to college with the hopes of boosting their stock.
