I don't really follow drafts that often, so there are a couple things that aren't that clear to me.
First off, what does it mean for a player to still have a year of eligibility left?
And secondly, why is preference given to the NFL? You hears these guys talking about drafting players but maybe having to wait a little longer because of the NFL. If a team drafts a player, should that team have the "rights" to him?
