The draft was a four-round quarterback draft where clubs were allowed to "protect or pick" from the selection. It was held on November 27, 2018, at the HyperX Esports Arena at Luxor Las Vegas and broadcast on the CBS Sports Network. The draft lasted four rounds with a preset draft order. The first round included a "pick or protect" method, where if a team elected to protect a player, they selected their player before the teams electing to not protect a player from their region.

The 2019 AAF QB Draft was the inaugural draft of the Alliance of American Football (AAF) for the 2019 season. The draft was a four-round quarterback draft where clubs were allowed to "protect or pick" from the selection. It was held on November 27, 2018, at the HyperX Esports Arena at Luxor Las Vegas and broadcast on the CBS Sports Network.[1]

Draft rules

The draft lasted four rounds with a preset draft order. The first round included a "pick or protect" method, where if a team elected to protect a player, they selected their player before the teams electing to not protect a player from their region. The second round kept the original selection order with the third and fourth rounds being the reverse order selection.

"Protect or pick" rules

Quarterbacks were allocated by region based on where they played college football or last played with a NFL or CFL team. If the player went to school outside of an Alliance team's area, the player will essentially be a free agent.[1] Teams were given the option to "protect" any player from their area, and would become that team's first round selection. Teams electing not to "protect" a player would then "pick" from the entire pool of eligible quarterbacks based off draft order for their first round selection. Any quarterback that was already signed to an Alliance team was eligible to be selected in the draft.[3]
