The University of Utah made history with Andrew Bogut's #1 selection in the 2005 NBA draft. Earlier that year, Utah quarterback Alex Smith was the #1 overall pick in the NFL Draft. Utah became the first school to have athletes drafted #1 overall to both the NFL and the NBA in the same year.

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.

David Eckstein is the only cardinal player (or former cardinal player i guess) that comes to mind as being drafted by the Red Sox, and i can assure u, if they had drafted him first then we would have definitely heard about how they missed out
