NEW YORK -- Cam Newton and Nick Fairley of national champion Auburn are among 56 non-seniors who applied for April's NFL Draft - a record total, but only three more than last year. The uncertainty surrounding the league's labor situation does not appear to have had a significant effect on underclassmen opting to declare for the draft. The draft is April 28-30, even if there is no new collective bargaining agreement to replace the one that expires in early March. If owners lock out the players - as the union expects - rookies wouldn't be able to sign contracts until a new CBA is in place.
