1946 NFL Draft

The 1946 National Football League Draft was held on January 14, 1946, at the Commodore Hotel in New York City, New York. The selections were withheld from the public out of fear that the newly formed All-America Football Conference would sign away players selected high; the most notable draft choice in this player selection meeting was made by the Washington Redskins and remains one of the biggest draft blunders of all time. They chose Cal Rossi with the 9th overall pick, but Rossi, a junior at UCLA, was not eligible to be drafted, they chose him again in the 1947 NFL draft. George Connor, tackle from Notre Dame taken 1st round 5th overall by the New York Giants. Inducted: Professional Football Hall of Fame class of 1975.
