Here's the draft round by round here

http://www.allamericanfootballleague.co ... _Round.pdf

Just a few things you should know: Each team has a few projected states, anyone who played college in those states were eligible to be protected by that team...They will be filled in the middle rounds, guys like Chris Leak, Peter Warrick, Ryan Moore etc were all protected by Florida...The draft was 50 rounds but Florida protected 40 players, so only their first 5 and last 5 picks were actually drafted...here's a little more info about the league in it self and the teams they are starting with(no mascots or team names, just team texas and team florida is how the teams are named)

The All American Football League is a professional American football league. The league, which combines a professional pay structure with the requirement that all players be college graduates. The All American Football League, scheduled to begin play in April 2008, is a professional American football league in which all players must possess a four-year university degree. The players will be employees of the AAFL rather than of the franchises, and the league will pay each player an average compensation of approximately $100,000 to year 'round player employees and $50,000 to season-only players to attract the best non-NFL talent. The AAFL's inaugural Draft took place on January 26, 2008.

For its first season, the AAFL has six franchises. Although there is no indication that nicknames would never be used, due to fans' reactions as of January 1, 2008, the teams continue to be referred to as "Team Florida", "Team Texas", etc. The teams are:

Alabama - ( Birmingham, Legion Field), coached by Mike Jones, former head coach of Frankfurt in NFL Europa. The team includes former Crimson Tide players (Reggie Myles, Alonzo Ephraim, and Marcus Spencer) and Kendall Mack from the Auburn Tigers.
Arkansas - (Little Rock, War Memorial Stadium), coached by Ron Calcagni. Signed players include former Razorback stars Clint Stoerner and Anthony Lucas
Florida - (Gainesville, Ben Hill Griffin Stadium) coached by Shane Matthews. Signed players include former Gators quarterback Chris Leak and former FSU standout and 1st round draft pick, Peter Warrick. The home opener will be played at Jacksonville and the final home game will be at Tampa.
Michigan - (Detroit, Ford Field), coached by John Fontes, former assistant coach of the Detroit Lions. Players have been signed from the University of Michigan, Michigan State University, and other colleges.
Tennessee - (Knoxville, Neyland Stadium), coached by Andy Kelly. Signed former UT kicker, James Wilhoit.
Texas - (Houston, Rice Stadium), coached by former University of Houston coach John Jenkins

I for one think this is an excellent idea. If only they could get a TV deal...
