Delaney wants players to go straight from high school to the NFL?
NFL players are way bigger, way stronger, and way faster than college players. The gap between college and high school might be even bigger. And the NFL doesn't really have a minor league, unless you consider the NCAA as their version of that.
The real solution here is simple, and I've said it before.
Schools don't need to pay the athletes. They're already giving them scholarships, room and board, food, and other necessities. But at least let the kids make money on their own, if they so choose. There's no reason the NCAA needs to keep such close tabs on their wallets. Frankly, it's a capitalist society, and if anyone wants to give them a few bucks for autographs, endorsements, or whatever else, why not let them do it?
