1974 Draft

The World Football League held its first ever draft on March 18, 1974. This draft was for the rights to players already in professional football rather than for collegians.

The order of round one was determined in a random drawing and each team was given one pick per round. Each round, teams picked in inverse order. Thus, the New York Stars had the last pick of the first round, but the first pick of the second round and so on.

The "Washington/Baltimore/Virginia Ambassadors" had the first pick and took Charlie Evans. The team became the Florida Blazers before the season started (the Florida listed below is the team that became the Jacksonville Sharks).

Below is the first round of the 1974 WFL draft. We plan to offer the entire 40 round draft at some point.

2 Toronto Northmen Larry Czonka RB Miami Dolphins
