The list of juniors and redshirt sophomores declaring for the 2012 NFL Draft has been made official.

The final, official 2012 NFL Draft early entrants list is now available, with 65 players throwing their names in the ring. That's nine higher than last year's total, making it by far the new record as far as non-senior talent goes.

All deadlines for returning to school have passed, so here we are. As always, some of these young men have made bright decisions, while others have not.
