Basically the draft works in this way. Every NFL team gets a place in the draft. The teams with the worst record from the previous draft first and the better teams draft toward the end. For example, the Indianapolis Colts will draft first in 2012 because they had the worst record in 2011, and New York Giants, who won the Super Bowl will draft toward the end. Teams can also exchange their places for positions of other teams, one pick or more than one pick or player or a combination of any thereof using the position of the year before. When every team has used its place in the order of drafting by either trading or choosing one player, one round is completed. Then they start the next round of drafting.
The drafts aspects that are certain include positioning of the team and the frequency at which rounds occur on draft. It has been revised many times since it was created in 1936, but the basic procedure remains the same. The draft was created to create as much parity in the league as possible, which allows the championships to be spread out among the teams as much as possible. Players are drafted mainly on their ability to play football, but there are other factors to be considered as well, such as charisma, leadership ability, and if they can be coached properly. NFL teams employ scouts to research the players. These scouts visit schools and look at potential draftees in the what is called “the combine,” which is held annually by the NFL. It is basically an training camp where players can showcase their talents and be evaluted by NFL coaches, scouts, and executives.
