NFL Draft Day History

NFL Draft Day is the most common source of recruitment for NFL teams. Each team has a position in the drafting order. The position is decided depending on the team’s performance on the previous season. The team that is ranked last, will have the first pick.

The first ever NFL Draft was in 1936. Since then, many aspects and rules of the draft have changed. The main goal of this event is to promote equality among all teams. The worst team on the previous season will have the chance to pick the best player available. NFL Draft Day occurs annually near the end of April and before the start of the new season.
