Concerned about the record 107 underclassmen who applied for this year's draft, and with 37 of them not selected, the league's College Advisory Committee developed new guidelines for players considering forfeiting their final years of eligibility.
Troy Vincent, the league's head of football operations, says the underclassmen will be advised on their potential to be picked in the first or second round. They also could be advised to stay in school.
Previous assessments dealt with the first through third rounds, and whether a player had no potential of being selected.
