Sports writers will conduct a mock draft to make predictions about the players which may be drafted. The players performance during the combine events is the leading indicator for their successful entrance into the NFL. The mock draft takes place in the

same order as the real draft. The mock draft has already gone through three rounds, and is on the fourth. Only 10% of college players are drafted.


The NFL draft began on February 8th 1936. The first draft had 9 rounds and by 1939 the draft consisted of 20 rounds. Bonus rounds were added in 1947 and ended in 1958. In 1980s they decided to make the quarterbacks a part of the first round picks and in 2000, teams would be able to trade players already on their roster for more selections in the first round and so forth.
