Clarett sues NFL over draft eligibility rule
"NEW YORK - Suspended Ohio State tailback Maurice Clarett sued the NFL on Tuesday, asking a judge to throw out a league rule preventing players from entering the draft until they have been out of high school for three years.
Clarett, who rushed for 1,237 yards and led Ohio State to a national championship as a freshman last season, is not eligible for the draft until 2005 under current rules."

Clarett has a big obstacle in the form of the NFLPA; they have already said that they support the NFL's eligibility rules. Clarett ought to suck it up and either go play in the CFL or play Arena Football.
