Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema was on the Bo Mattingly radio show this week and suggested an idea that would allow undrafted players with eligibility remaining to return to college and rejoin their football teams. Per CoachingSearch.com:
quote:

“I haven’t touched base with Gus (Malzahn) yet, but he had two that didn’t get drafted. Dan (Mullen) did as well. Ohio State had a couple,” Bielema said. “Those coaches, I’m reaching out to them and trying to put together some collective thoughts on how to approach it. Now, some kids maybe had to move on for academic reasons or personal or their own story. But if you have a guy like Denver (Kirkland) who’s on progression to graduate, is doing the right things and needs another year (can we change something?)”

LSU probably would stand to gain the most from this. They have seemingly had several declare early only to not get drafted.

It's a good idea. If you're undrafed and decide you want to go back to school to finish your degree you can. But can't play football? Stupid. In that sense it's an awesome idea. Will it cause more kids to take a shot at the draft? Maybe so...maybe not. Akot of kids that go pro early only do so for the top 3 rounds. It's a win for everyone except the fricking idiots that run college football

U think it would definitely result in more kids declaring.

no doubt. Knowing they can fall back if they don't get drafter will certainly cause more people to leave.

That's actually not a bad idea.
