These players should get to the NFL Draft as quickly as possible.
For players in the Big 10, the first question you should be asking is, “How can I get to the 2021 NFL Draft as quickly as possible?”
After the Big 10 decided to “pushed back” their football season to spring, there are several questions that players should be asking:
-Is it in my best interest to attempt to play two seasons in eight months?
-Am I guaranteed a job with the next class of recruits coming in?
-What time will I have to get ready for the 2021 NFL Draft if I declare?
-Will there even be a national champion in the spring?
-Are they even going to play in the spring?
The fact is, none of these questions can be answered by the universities that they attend because they are the same people that put them in the position they are in now despite nearly half a year of warning.
At the end of the day, the players who have the potential to get to the NFL this year need to make the sensible move and jump to the SEC or the ACC. Like it or not, the SEC is still the premier conference in the NFL and there are some teams at the bottom of the conference desperate to push themselves back into relevance.
The question players have to ask themselves is, whether it is better to train for another season that might not happen or that might not even matter, or should they go to a conference that the NFL respects more and put themselves in a better position for a season in the fall?
