Should the NFL allow one-and-done players?

NFL dreams are going to come true in the NFL Draft, but studs like Clemson freshman Trevor Lawrence have to wait. Many people think it's unfair that the NFL requires athletes to be three years removed from high school before they're eligible to play. We let people over the age of 18 join the military and work anywhere else without restrictions. But pundits argue we are still talking about young adults who are not prepared for the physical and mental toll of the NFL. They should stay in college instead. What do you think? 🏈

High school graduates can make the choice to sacrifice their lives for their country, and yet college freshman can't decide to make money doing something they love? There's something wrong with that.

Some freshman football players are ready to make the jump to the NFL. Even if they aren't starting, they can hone their craft in a professional setting without the distraction of schoolwork they have no interest in. Forcing players to play three years in college only hurts NCAA schools that have to deal with student-athletes who have zero interest in the student part of student-athlete and have proven themselves ready for the big stage.

Even if they aren't ready, freshman players who feel they're ready should be able to make that mistake as an adult. They should be able to go straight to the NFL if they want.

Freshman footballers who think they can hang in the NFL will get beaten down by both the real world and grown men at the same time.

No matter how big or strong freshmen are, they are nowhere near ready to take on the physical toll of an NFL schedule. Not only do they have to condition and work out constantly, but opponents are also looking to hurt them with more force than they have ever encountered.

Mentally, NFL athletes have to memorize huge playbooks, analyze tape and deal with failure on a professional level where there are no excuses. There's a reason the NFL only allows players three years removed from high school to play in the league. Kids that young just aren't ready.
