Just make it like the NBA where a player can jump ship whenever he wants. Not too many will be going to the NFL at 18-19 years old. Also the impact will not be much on most schools since only a few have more than 2-3 draft pick in a year. You may have someone like Trevor Lawrence leaving after Soph year but not many.

The requirement to be three years out of HS to go to the NFL isn’t an NCAA rule.

It’s part of the collective bargaining agreement between the NFL and the NFLPA.

IOW, the reason players don’t go to the NFL as early as they can to the NBA is that the NFL can’t take them. Has nothing to do with college rules.
