During SEC Media Days last week, Alabama head coach Nick Saban recently suggested that he would like the deadline for players to declare for the NFL draft pushed back.

Saban states that NFL draft declaration and evaluation deadlines put a lot of pressure on players and breaks up team chemistry as they prepare for a Bowl games at the end of the season.

LSU coach Les Miles shares a similar opinion with Saban. Per

“What you would like to do is have time with each player, be able to describe his situation,” Miles said about the NFL evaluations. “And if you have 10 guys – oh my gosh, in the middle of bowl practice – it’s impossible. So back (the deadline) up. Why make (the decision) in a hurry?

"I’ll tell you something, every agent skirts the issue. You’ve got five agents chasing 10 guys. We’re one to 10. We’ve got 10 guys to talk to. He (Saban) is exactly right.”
