Just thinking! Say if a team wanted to draft a player that is still currently in college. Is that possible? Are their rules against drafting someone early, like that.  I was just thinking, if I were the 49ers, I would draft Luck, out of Stanford and just wait until he graduate and the following season, I would have the QB of my choice, since Coach Hardballs knows him and like him. I would just take my lumps for the upcoming season. Also if this happen could the player come out early, if he was drafted? Just a question.

Eligibility for The draft

Players who have been out of high school for two and a half years.
Most drafted players come directly out of NCAA programs as seniors or juniors,

All players who choose to enter the selected year's draft must sign with an agent prior to entering the draft. There by Losing NCAA Eligibility!

A player who is drafted but does not sign a contract can sit out that season, which is referred to as a "holdout", and can re-enter the draft the following year unless he is told differently by the NFL commissioner.

Holdout .... see Michael Crabtree, who told the 49'ers he was going to re-enter the draft, if they did not give him more money

So the answer is NO
