NFL Draft History

The first NFL Draft took place in Philadelphia on February 8th, 1936. It included zero media cover and a full 9 rounds. The lucky player to ever be selected was Jay Berwanger. The NFL Draft continued on for years as a lackluster event. That is until ESPN helped put it on the map in 1980.

Gradually over the next handful of years coverage began to pick up and it has slowly become what it is today, one of the best days of the year. The draft has also brought some of our favorite draft personalities like Mel Kiper Jr., Mike Mayock and Todd McShay.
