Time To Prepare For The 2ND 2020 Draft! Huh?

Second draft? Huh? What? That’s correct, now that the standard NFL draft is over, and now we need to prepare for the 2020 supplemental draft. Unlike years past, this supplemental draft might be a lot different and a lot bigger. The future of the 2020 college season is up in the air, and with it, the future of a large swath of prospects. Usually there are only a handful of names added to the ranks via the supplemental, and even fewer are actually taken. That can change dramatically very soon.

Recently there were reports that the #1 RB option for 2021, Travis Etienne, might enter the supplemental draft. This came as a surprise to a lot of people, but maybe this is just the tip of the spear. If Etienne decides to jump ship, I wouldn’t be surprised if the floodgates open up and a lot more eligible prospects decide to do the same. Of course, the opposite can also happen. Maybe we get some good news about the upcoming college season, and the supplemental draft gets sent back to the peripheral. There are a number of people reporting this much.

With that said, it is hard to believe that if there is a significant change to the college season, that it wouldn’t be considered “significant cause.” There is absolutely no clarity as to what the season is going to look like. Making any assumption on the matter would be fool’s errand. Forcing seniors or red shirt juniors to sit a year without having a chance to better their stock would be a miscarriage of logic. I was a boy scout so I always like to be prepared. Here are some of the draft eligible prospects that decided to return to school, but are eligible to enter the supplemental draft.
