No. The NFL has a clause stating that to be eligible to be drafted, a player must have been out of high school for a minimum of 3 years. This however doe not mean the player has to play at college, but virtually every player has. The 3 year clause is for the player's safety. Think about it, ev…en the biggest guy in high school may be 6'3", and 230lbs. However, if the 3 year clause was not present, we would see 230lb rookies going up against 300+ lb linemen, and that won't be a pretty sight. Therefore, no, no player has ever been drafted straight out of high school, some may have not gone to college, but all are at least 21 years old. ( Full Answer )

There are probably 100 QB's that should be in the Hall instead of him based on actual performance over their careers. ( Full Answer )
