About NFL Draft

The NFL Draft occurs annually and it has attracted more attention each year since its inception in 1936. The venue has had to be increased in size each year, also, as fans enjoy being present at the event and are allowed to attend free on a first-come, first-served basis. During the Draft, 32 National Football League teams select new college football players. Speculation reaches a fever pitch as fans and sports journalists bet on which players will be chosen by which teams.

The 2010 NFL Draft, the League's 75th, took place over 3 days (April 22-24) at Radio City Music Hall in NYC. The event was covered by NFL Network and ESPN. The St. Louis Rams, who hold the dubious honor of being the worst team from the 2009 season, had the rights to the first overall pick.
