Although there would have to be some kind of guard against a player pulling a La'el Collins move. Reinstate the old rule where players' rights are held by original drafting team until they have played their rookie deal in full.
What you don't want, is players refusing to sign, or threatening to not sign in order to steer their selection. And then using the return to school option as a method of making good on those threats. I would see the league needing to guard against college players 'feeling out' the league and using the NCAA to do it.
I think if the rule sticks to undrafted players, that should take care of it. Pretty sure basketball does this, yes?
