From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Teams of the American Football League (AFL, 1960-1969) often had success in signing first round draft choices away from the older, more conservative NFL. Reasons included: higher salaries; the AFL's practice of signing regional players to teams near their home towns (often trading rights to accomplish this); perception of a better opportunity to make the team and play; and especially the AFL's practice of scouting small, as well as predominantly black-attended colleges.
