What is an unsigned draft choice?

An unsigned draft choice occurs when a team pics a player in the draft but does not sign him. Often players remain in juniors after drafted, that team just wants dibs on him. A player that has been "taken " in the NHL draft has the choice of siging a contract with that team or NOT. If he does not sign, another team has to get permission from the drafting NHL team to try to sign him instead. If he signs with the second team, that team has to pay a compensation amount to the original drafting team .

Does a player have to enter the NFL draft?

Yes. When a player is drafted during the NFL draft the team that drafted them owns the signing rights. So, if the player refuses to play they will have to wait a year and then get signed as a free agent. If that team doesn't do anything with the signing rights to the player they will not play in the NFL that year. If a player is not drafted they become an 'undrafted free agent' and are immediately available to be picked up by any team.
