In the 2004 NFL draft there were 167 players drafted in a total of 6 rounds. More players are brought in during camp whom did not get drafted with the hopes of making a team. "Camp players" fill the need as practice players do during the season. Your NFL chances of making a team is an extreme in terms of the overall number of college athlete seniors available each year. Your hearing this from a formal 2 year NFL player 1979-81 and 1 year USFL player.
There have been 52 Hawkeye's drafted by NBA teams. Here is the list below with the number in the round they were drafted, (in 1982 and after the number is their TOTAL draft position regardless of round)name, school, team that drafted them, year, and round they went in. Obviously there are players that were drafted that may have never played in the NBA and there are players that were not drafted that have played like Dean Oliver more recently. So hopefully this is better than nothing to help answer your question.

I have replaced the erroneous listing of Art Beatty (who actually played for American U) in the 1968 draft with the correct listing of Sam Williams. The error apparently was caused from picking up an erroneous listing from another site. I have alerted that site & assume they will be making the correction shortly. You are missing the name Matt Bullard a 1990 Iowa grad who played in the NBA for several years
Many players have never been drafted.
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. One perfect example is Kurt Warner who played for the Iowa Barnstormer before beingÊdrafted by the St. Louis Rams, which he led to a Super Bowl Championship, on the path to be a future Hall of Fame member.
