The Wyndham Garden Sterling Heights Hotel will host the 2019 RPFL Draft September 7th 2019
The RPFL is a professional football league that provides adult football players with a platform to gain more experience while attaining great quality game film that can be used to market them to the NFL and CFL. The Rivals Professional Football League Draft is an annual event where RPFL teams select eligible football players that have attended an RPFL tryout. RPFL tryouts are our only source of player recruitment. The basic design of the draft is that each team is given a position in the drafting order in reverse order relative to its record in the previous season, which means that the last place team is positioned first. From this position, the team can either select a player or trade their position to another team for other draft positions, a player or players, or any combination thereof.
The 2019 RPFL draft will consist of 40 rounds with each team making 1 selection per round. To be draft eligible the prospect must be 18 years of age and have attended a tryout. We require prospects to attend a tryout for them to be draft eligible to create a fair chance for each team to have an equal opportunity at drafting each player.
