You can enter the NFL Draft with three years of college education. Many football players will redshirt as a freshman which is the NCAA legal way of giving a student five eligible years of football at college. You may see people enter the draft as a sophomore, however the redshirted so it is actually their 3rd year in college.
NCAA says 125 players is the max per college, 85 on scholarship max. Figure 20% to 25% are Seniors. My best estimate is average 20 to 25. Of those, 300 to 325 total get agents and enter the NFL Draft. 255 get drafted. Some get to play.
