Yes, Arena Football LeagueÊ players can be drafted to the NFL. Many NFL players had used the Arena Football League as a platform to improve their game before being drafted to the NFL.

Is football better than AFL?

By football I'm assuming your talking about the NFL. If so,yes, the NFL is better than the AFL. But both leagues have similarities and differences. The similarities are that they both have an objective; Get the ball in the End Zone or through the Upright(Goalposts but only by kicking it), Stop the opposing offence from scoring, Try to force fumbles, and both play on Football fields but the AFL is played indoors. The differences are; Rules(the linemen have a restricted zone in the AFL and as well as the Defensive Linemen, which means they cannot cross but it will be a penalty) in the NFL any player can sack the QB(Quarterback, but within a second of the QB releasing the ball or a penalty for roughing the passer would be called) Field; AFL plays indoors on a 50 yard (length) and the (width) is much smaller than the NFL. The NFL plays on a 100 yard field but if you count the end zone it's 110 yards. But the players are in drafted players from college who didn't make it too the NFL and also the CFL. (Canadian Football League) So yes the NFL is better than the AFL
