And the 2016 NPGL Draft Picks Are…

April 21, 2016

This week the National Pro Grid League held its 2016 draft, and while there are still a few more spots on the rosters to fill, most athletes have been picked up. Here’s a rundown of who is going where this season.

Here’s a snippet from

You can see all of Tuesday’s draft selections at here. Teams have the option to fill their roster up to 24 athletes, and the final rosters are due due April 29. Teams can continue to sign free agents or athletes new to the league until that date. Teams are not required to draft beyond 18 players, but they can draft players so that their roster reaches 24 (12 men and 12 women). A team’s active roster must be cut to 18 before start of the season, so the remaining six would make up the development roster. Those development players are not eligible to play during the 2016 season except in the case of an injury to an active player.

Should a supplemental draft be required, it will be Tuesday, April 26.

Details of the 2016 season will be released soon.
