NFL Draft 2013: 73 underclassmen eligible to be selected

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE

The NFL Draft will be chock full of juniors ready for a shot at the big time.

The NFL Draft is coming up in a little over three months, meaning many hopeful collegiate athletes are preparing with vigor.

While seniors have been preparing for this moment for a year, the NFL announced 73 underclassmen have officially declared their intention to enter the draft, something that always adds intrigue to the event.

Some of the biggest names are:

Out of those names, approximately six are expected to be first round selections, with Joeckel and Jones thought of as No. 1 overall talents.

Joeckel earned his reputation blocking Johnny Manziel's blind side for the Aggies, while Jones was a dominant force in the SEC, racking up double-digit sacks with 14.5.

The only quarterback to declare early is Bray, who could rise up the draft boards considering what a weak class this is for signal-callers.
