Extremely very few players from the US Military Academes of West Point and Annapolis and Colardo Springs are ever drafted into the NFL. The reason being is that each cadet has a five year commitment to the military following graduation. By that time - the individual is just about too old and / or out of shape for pro bowl. Since there is little chance of being drafted serious football players tend not to consider the academies. This in turn lowers the athletic competitiveness of military schools. Should the military give a waiver to X number to cadets so they have a shot of being in the NFL.
