G5 to P4 transfers

Recommended Posts

Thought this was interesting data posted elsewhere.  Generally, transferring UP does not improve your NFL chances vs staying at a lower level and being successful.  No shocker there, this matches what we've seen at SMU, but it is good for G5 talent retention to acknowledge it.

At any one time, just over 16,000 college football players are draft eligible.  And then only around 259 players will be drafted. That is 0.016% of the draft-eligible NCAA pool. 

Of those players, about 60% will make it onto an NFL roster at some point in their careers. However, only about 35% of drafted players will make it onto a roster in their rookie season.

Those few that make an NFL roster will have an average NFL career of only 3.3 years.  

In other words, if their career choice is only NFL career or Bust.... 😕
