"The NCAA should give the Seniors an extra year."

Easier said than done.
Especially for all of the partial scholarship sports. Those partial scholarships are basically already penciled and spoken for.

If the seniors are on schedule to graduate this May and they do, and still want the extra year, the team might not be able to afford him/her for an additional year.
Masters classes/courses become much more expensive to the program. All of his/her current (undergrad) academic/merit money becomes athletic money once Masters curriculum begins. The athletic money becomes too much for the partial scholarship programs to absorb.

The best FINANCIAL decision for the player would be to pick up a dual degree. That way, the academic/merit $ stays as just that. (I say that not being 100% sure)

That is, if they don't already have a job lined up

If I'm wrong, please correct me.

Spring-sport athletes, yes. Winter-sport athletes got a complete season. Tournament play is a bonus. No need to give them another full year of eligibility.
