Having an NFL minor league system would not only level the playing field for college, but would provide for more oppurtunities for football players aroiund the country (and other places) to pursue a career in professional football.

I don't see the downside really. College football will still get quality athletes, much like college baseball does. Players can then decide to either get drafted from college or from high school like they can in baseball. Many current major league players (superstars and average players alike) went through the college ranks.

What they should do though is put the minor league schedule in the spring, so it doesn't interfere with the college or top-level pro league.

This is exactly right. I agree 100%.

This will probably not happen any time soon (baring some sort of legislative action).

The owners won't want it because it will cost them money to build the leagues from scratch.

The NFL players won't want it because it means more free agents for teams to sign.

The colleges really won't like it becaus they won't get to use the top athletes to make millions while only compensating them with an education that they won't even bother to fully take advantage of.
