The excitement is building for the 2022 NFL Draft picks and the NFL pro teams that will compete and trade to choose their new players. College football players have been preparing for this moment with intense training and developing their skills during their career.
The National Football League (NFL) Draft is an annual event which serves as the league's most common source of player recruitment. To be eligible for the draft, players must have been out of high school for at least three years and must have used up their college eligibility before the start of the next college football season. They must opt-in for the draft.
They give each Pro NFL team a position in the drafting order in reverse order relative to its record in the previous year,. The last-place team is the first to choose recruits, and the Super Bowl team champion is the last to select. From this position, the team can either select a player or trade its position to another team for other draft positions, a player or players, or any combination thereof. The round is complete when each team has either selected a player or traded its position in the draft.
College training is intense. There’s no way around it. These are the best football players in the country available for recruitment. Players are ranked and they have competed for this moment to enter the NFL. It’s serious business, and it requires the help of some serious equipment.
That’s why Pro and Collegiate football teams have relied on VertiMax football training equipment for years. Now, as spring training season begins and NFL teams around the country prepare for fall season and Super Bowl 2022, we’re seeing more and more players using VertiMax equipment in their training routines.
