The 1966 NFL draft was held on November 27, 1965,[1] the last year in which the NFL and the AFL had separate drafts. As a result, many players selected by teams from both leagues would choose to play for the more established NFL, or in a rarer case, the AFL. The expansion Atlanta Falcons were awarded the first pick in the draft as well as the final pick in each of the first five rounds.[1] The league also provided the Falcons with an expansion draft six weeks later, selecting players from NFL rosters.[1]
