Alabama head coach Nick Saban doesn't like the fact that a record 98 underclassmen were accepted into the 2014 NFL Draft, stating that it hurts college football, the NFL and the juniors and redshirt sophomores themselves. The consensus among NFL scouts is that the scouting community feels the same way.

Your body only lasts for so long. Use the youth on NFL. Come back to college if you want, but being an ex NFL player pretty much qualifies you as a gym coach or motivational speaker x)

The quality of your rookie class overall goes down as the average age goes down.  Over time.

Only thing it hurts is the lack of development from the players. A ton of raw athletes will be drafted. Which will make it more important for coaches to hire a staff that's good at developing talent.
