NFL Draft Detroit

The NFL Draft consists of seven rounds of picks, with each round containing 32 picks. Each one of those 32 picks goes to a single NFL team, so everyone gets a chance to pick in every round.

The NFL assigns the highest draft picks to the teams with the worst records. The worst teams get the most pick advantages, so they can pick top talent and, theoretically, get better to keep the league competitive. Teams can also trade their picks in exchange for other picks, players, or a combination thereof.

What happens if you enter the Draft and no one drafts you? In that case, you become an undrafted free agent, which means you retain eligibility to enter the NFL and can therefore theoretically sign a contract with any team.
