Draft order

The draft order is the order of the teams finish from the previous season beginning with the team with the team with the worst record, and finishing with the team having the best record. Then, compensation picks are added to the first three rounds depending on whether any draft picks from those rounds failed to sign with their team in the previous draft. Finally, first round picks (or second round picks if the team is in the top ten selections) are removed for any compensation-eligible free agents signed during the offseason, and a corresponding supplementary round selection is added to the team who loses that free agent. The eligible free agents must have been offered a "qualifying offer" at the free agency filing date in order for draft picks to be awarded and removed.

The base draft order, based on 2025 season final standings, is as follows: (2025 win-loss record shown in brackets - Expansion teams Detroit and Green Bay were awarded the last two picks in each round)

  1. Atlanta Fire Ants (58-104)
  2. Ohio Oxen (59-103)

  4. Toronto Nomads (66-96)
