Teams take turns choosing players. When a team chooses a player, it is called a pick. There are two rounds in the draft. Both rounds have 30 picks for a total of 60 picks. Each team gets one pick per round, but sometimes, a team will pick more than once in a round or not at all. This is because teams can trade draft picks for players, for money, or for other draft picks.
