When Is the Second Round of the NFL Draft?

Introduction

The National Football League (NFL) Draft is an annual event in which the 32 NFL teams select eligible college football players to join their organization. The draft order is determined by each team’s record during the previous season. The first round of the draft is usually held in April, while the second round is held in May.

The second round of the NFL draft usually begins on a Friday evening, and consists of 40 selections. Of those 40 selections, 32 are made by the teams who did not have a first-round pick, while the remaining eight are made by the teams who traded away their first-round picks.

The second round often features players who were considered to be first-round talents but fell to the second round due to various reasons. These reasons can include concerns about their injury history, character concerns, or simply because they are deemed to be better fits for certain schemes than others.

Some notable second-round picks from recent years include quarterbacks Dak Prescott (2016) and Patrick Mahomes (2017), running back Alvin Kamara (2017), wide receiver A.J. Green (2011), and defensive end Khalil Mack (2014).
