(AP) A record 73 underclassmen, including six first-team All-Americans, have been approved for the NFL draft on Saturday.


That overall number of early entries is eight more than last year.


The six All-Americans are safety Matt Elam of Florida, tight end Zach Ertz of Stanford, tackle Luke Joeckel of Texas A&M, defensive end Bjoern Werner of Florida State, linebacker Jarvis Jones of Georgia and cornerback Dee Milliner of national champion Alabama.


Also approved former LSU cornerback-kick returner Tyrann Mathieu, a 2011 All-American who was kicked off the Tigers before last season.


The NFL draft will be April 25-27 in New York.
