Undrafted 2017 ACC

Notable 2017 ACC undrafted free agents and where they signed:

Ben Boulware, LB, Clemson (Panthers) Jarron Jones, DT, Notre Dame (Giants) Travis Rudolph, WR, Florida State (Giants) Artavis Scott, WR, Clemson (Chargers) Jadar Johnson, S, Clemson (Giants) Devonte’ Fields, OLB, Louisville Amba Etta-Tawo, WR, Syracuse (Jaguars) Jamal Carter, S, Miami (Broncos)
A list of underclassmen who were eligible to be drafted but not taken:

Jerod Evans, QB, Virginia Tech Tarean Folston, RB, Notre Dame Jermaine Grace, LB, Miami Travis Rudolph, WR, Florida State Artavis Scott, WR, Clemson Joe Yearby, RB, Miami
Why do so many kids keep coming out early despite not getting drafted at all? I can understand a player like Scott of Clemson (who got his degree early), but doesn’t this say the Evans of VT simply made a huge mistake?
