NFL Draft
 < 1959 1961 > 

The 1960 National Football League Draft Annual Player Selection Meeting in which NFL teams take turns selecting amateur college American football players and other first-time eligible players, was held in secret in order to fend off increased competition for college players from the American Football League (AFL), which began play in 1960. Many players, including half of those drafted in the first round, signed with the new league, including the first overall pick and Heisman Trophy winner Billy Cannon.
