The numbers had been steadily rising when it came to the number of eligible underclassmen each year in the NFL draft, but after a giant increase last year to 98 the figure dropped for the first time in six years.

This year the number of eligible underclassmen for the 2015 draft is just 74, down two dozen from 2014. Here’s a look at the last several years and the number of underclassmen eligibles.
