List of Arkansas Razorbacks in the NFL Draft

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Tyler Wilson was the second Razorback to be drafted in the 2013 NFL Draft. Wilson was drafted 112th overall by the Oakland Raiders.

The National Football League (NFL) have drafted 264 players who had played for the University of Arkansas Razorbacks since the league began holding drafts in 1936.[a 1] The Razorbacks' highest draft position was second overall in 1954, when Lamar McHan was selected by the Chicago Cardinals.[3][4] Arkansas' first drafted player in the NFL was Jack Robbins, who was the fifth overall pick by the Chicago Cardinals in 1938.[5] Four former players were selected from the latest NFL draft: Travis Swanson, Chris Smith, Kiero Small, and Zach Hocker.

Each NFL franchise seeks to add new players through the annual NFL Draft. The team with the worst record the previous year picks first, the next-worst team second, and so on. Teams that did not make the playoffs are ordered by their regular-season record, with any remaining ties broken by strength of schedule. Playoff participants are sequenced after non-playoff teams, based on their round of elimination (wild card, division, conference, and Super Bowl).[6]

Before the AFL–NFL merger agreements in 1966, the American Football League (AFL) operated in direct competition with the NFL and held a separate draft. This led to a massive bidding war over top prospects between the two leagues. As part of the merger agreement on June 8, 1966, the two leagues would hold a multiple round "Common Draft". Once the AFL officially merged with the NFL in 1970, the "Common Draft" simply became the NFL Draft.[1][2]
