How many years are required to play college football until you can get drafted to the NFL? 1 year if your good at football. scouts will come to your college football games to see if your good enough to play in the NFL. You also have to be good in school they also check if your grades are good so… you have to maintain grades A's and B's maybe even 1 or 2 C's. But you have to be a really good player and a team player. Then if they chose you that's where you will go into a draft pick all NFL teams will chose a player keep in mind that all the teams coaches has seen your game videos to see if your good or not. Then the teams will start choosing the players from college that they want and if you get picked that's when you sign a contract for a certain amount of years and will pay you a certain amount of money if you sign your name then congratulations you made it to the NFL! Hope this helped you and good luck but just remember there is thousands of colleges all around the world with millions of college football players and only about 100 players get drafted to the NFL each year so keep practicing (MORE)

According to NFL.com's historical draft database, the first Rutgers player drafted was Linebacker Bob Simms who was drafted in the 10th round in the 1960 NFL Draft by the New York Giants.
This article (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NFL_Draft#Eligibility) states that the player must be a junior to qualify for the NFL draft. However, some redshirt sophomores have been eligible. I believe the rule is that they have to be three years removed from high school. There is also an exception pr…ocess though it is rarely used. It is extremely rare for even a redshirt sophomore to enter the NFL draft.. The NFL, unlike other major American sports leagues, has little problem with very young players trying to enter their league because high school and early college players are simply not capable of playing in the NFL in most cases. The NFL requires a certain degree of muscle development and the league's lack of a developmental league (for all intents and purposes the NCAA is the NFL's minor league) means that young players are usually unfit to be drafted, so they have a powerful incentive to stay in school until they prove that they are ready for the NFL.

Likely no, as players who come out early rarely have developed sufficient football skills to last in the NFL.
The final season of the American Football League was 1969. The last player drafted by an AFL team in 1969 was DL Fred Zirkie of Duke University by the New York Jets with the 442nd and final selection of the 1969 draft. The AFL and NFL held a 'common draft' between 1967-1969. Even though the leagu…es were separate, they came together at draft time to select players together as one unit. This is because, prior to 1967, many times an AFL team and an NFL team would draft the same player which gave the player an advantage in bargaining and meant that one of the two teams that selected the player would come up empty and, in essence, would have wasted a draft selection. The last player drafted in a separate AFL draft was end Ken McLean out of Texas A&M by the Buffalo Bills in 1966. (MORE)

Certainly , the NBA can draft players from Canadian colleges. However, that would be akin to drafting players from a poor high school conference in the US and I mean a poor high school conference. The WCAC in Washington DC is a good conference and off the top of my head I can name several player…s who played NBA ball. DeMatha produced Sid Catlett, Derrick Whittenberg, Sidney Lowe, Bernard Williams, Danny Ferry, Joe Forte, Kenny Carr, Keith Bogans, Adrian Dantley, Adrian Branch ,Jerrod Mustaf, Hawkeye Whitney, Joe Kennedy , John Austin, Johnny Jones - are players who all attended DeMatha . Mackin (now closed) produced Austin Carr, Johnny Dawkins, Keith Herron, Dominic Pressley and Donald "Duck" Williams. Archbishop John Carroll wrought Ruben Boumtje, Tom Hoover , Eddie Jordan, Cedric Lewis and John Thompson (better known as Georgetown coach). St. John's of DC produced Collis Jones , Jack George, Bobby Lewis. Gonzaga College HIGH (my hs alma mater) is the most well reknowned academic institution in the conference ) has produced Robert Churchwell and Tom Sluby. The players from this one high school conference outnumber Canadian NBA players from all parts of Canada , all provices from coast and as far north as Canada goes. Canada DOES NOT produce basketball players despite it's proximity to the US. Any decent player with ties to Canada i.e. born there, immigrated there , sought asylum there or any way is remotely connected to Canada will choose to go to the US for college because the competition is so poor in Canadian College ranks. The list below includes all Canadian NBA players from the inception of the NBA to present. Argentina and Australia produce more players than Canada. Vancouver outdrew NJ, Sacramento and the Pacers. Toronto was 19th in attendance. Where else are you going to go in Canada? Montreal -Winnepeg - be real ? You can do hockey there but The greatest Canadian of all, (born in South Africa and went to high school there ) Steve Nash went to college at Santa Clara. His career 14.6 ppg is the highest of any Canadian and his assists 8.5 pg are the highest numbers of any Canadian in the NBA. He was awarded an Honorary Doctor of Laws by the University of Victoria in 2008. Nash's has won 2 MVP awards . Some of these have been questioned ( I think it is a question of reverse discrimination in a black domonated league.)but they were well deserved . His all around play makes him worth more than all the Canadian players combined. Sam Dalenburt - born in Haiti, immigrated to Canada because (the fridge) Canada is slightly more desirable than impovervished Haiti. He had the good sense to go to Pennsacola Jr. College and Seton Hall . Jamal Magliore - born and actually attended hs there naturally went south of the border to the University of Kentucky . One year he averaged 16.2 ppg extremely for a player from Canada. Rick Fox - who had a decent NBA career went to North Carolina. Prior to this he bid Canada a fare ado as he was eager to play against real competition in Warsaw , Indiana. One year he averaged 15.2 ppg in the NBA. Todd MacCulloch - 7'0 beast (joke) lasted 4 years in the NBA. He had the good sense to go south for college at U. of Washington . He averaged 6.1 ppg and 4.0 rpg in the NBA. He lasted 4 NBA years. Anthony Rautins- 10 Leo Rautins - The 6 ft 8 in, 215 lb Rautins was the first Canadian ever drafted in the first round of the NBA Draft going 17th overall to the Philadelphia 76ers in the 1983 Draft. Naturally he went to American Colleges Minnesota and Syracuse. He lasted a season and 4 GAMES (32 games total) scored 48 TOTAL NBA points for an even 1.5 ppg. in the NBA. He is in the CANADIAN BASKETBALL HALL OF FAME - like being named the winner of a beauty contest for fat girls. Ernie Vanderweghe - was drafted in 3rd round in 1949. Even then he went to the US Colgate for college. One year in his 5 year career he averaged 12ppg. Famous for being the father of Kiki. Bill Wennington - had a bit of talent - mostly just being big- went to St. John's in New York . He had a long journeyman career never averaging more than 7.1pg (4.6 career avg) and never grabbing 5 rebounds per game. Stewart Granger - lasted 3 years 80 games in the NBA. Career avg 4ppg and 1 rpg and 2.2 assists per game. Ron Crevier another Canadian stud attended Boston College and lasted a total of 3 games without scoring a point - he did grab a rebound and his highlight is his 2 personal fouls. Lars Hansen - born in Denmark grew up in Canada and was drafted in '77 in the 7th round by LA. Naturally he went south to the University of Washington. He lasted 15 NBA games w/ 76 total points 5.5 ppg and 3.9 rpg. Bob Houbregs- Played from '53 -'58. Averaged 9.3 ppg and 5.5 rpg - one of the top performers ever by a Canadian in the NBA. Mike Smrek - had a tremendous NBA career by Canadian standards. A 7' center played from '85-86 - '91-92. Averaged 2.9 ppg and 2.2 rpg. Naturally he went south to Canisius College instead of playing in a Canadian College. Hank Biasetti - played for the Toronto Huskies in the old BAA . Drafted in '47 and played a total of 6 games for 6 points. Went to college at Long Island University. Bob Houbregs - Elected to NBA Hall of Fame - Naturally went to College at the University of Washington. in 1953 was NCAA player of year. In NBA avg 14 ppg and 8.3 rpg. I cannot rate players that I never saw - but HOF speaks for itself. Jim Zoet - played a total of 7 NBA games in 1982. Scored a total of 2 points. (MORE)

Yes, many players out of USMA have been drafted into the NFL. They are usually drafted in the later rounds due to their serving time after they leave the academy.
