In the 2004 NFL draft there were 167 players drafted in a total of 6 rounds. More players are brought in during camp whom did not get drafted with the hopes of making a team. "Camp players" fill the need as practice players do during the season. Your NFL chances of making a team is an extreme in terms of the overall number of college athlete seniors available each year. Your hearing this from a formal 2 year NFL player 1979-81 and 1 year USFL player.

While many NFL players are drafted from college, a college degree (while beneficial) is not required. What is required is talent and someone (scout) from the NFL to notice that talent.

All current NFL players have attended a college. However, some players entered the NFL draft before they graduated from college. To get into the NFL, you must first be drafted by an NFL team in the college draft. Therefore, you would have to go to college to get to the NFL.

You can either get drafted out of college football or, if they have open try-outs, go try out for them. It's easier to get drafted out of college though.
