- 4-round NCAA Futures draft in August. 1 QB, 1 RB and 1 WR are required, plus one player at a position of the owner's choice (QB, RB, WR, TE or K). NCAA players do not accumulate points while in college. At a meeting one week prior to the real life NFL draft in April, each owner may pick up the option on as many of his college players as he'd like to add them to his active NFL roster without subjecting them to the league draft. The cost to do this is a draft pick in the same round in the league's main draft in August as the player was chosen in the previous year's college draft. (Note: A Futures player who returns to college may not be kept on your Futures roster for an additional season).
Example 1: Team A drafts Reggie Bush with their NCAA 1st round pick in the 2005 Futures Draft. One week prior to the real 2006 NFL draft, Team A decides they'd like to add Bush to their active NFL roster for the upcoming season. In doing so, Team A forfeits their 1st round pick in the the league's main draft in August.
Example 2: Team B drafts Matt Leinart with their NCAA 1st round pick in the 2004 Futures Draft. Matt Leinart does not go pro, returning to college for the 2005 season. Leinart is released back from Team B's Futures roster into the 2005 Futures Draft pool. This rule is to force teams to draft players who they believe will go pro after the current season, and not stockpile underclassmen years in advance.
