Every season in each league a draft is conducted– a kind of talent fair where the best young players of the world participate in order to get a chance to prove themselves on the highest level. These are the players of the Junior Schools who didn’t sign contracts with their teams or were released for a fee.
Players participating in the draft are called prospects. The quantity of prospects equals the number of the teams in the league (32), multiplied by the number of rounds. At the moment there are 3 rounds. Initially skills and some other player indicators are hidden. Their visibility depends on the level of the Scout Buerau and on whether the player was examined at the youth school. After the examination the talent and efficeiency are assessed:

C: from 85 to 89
D: from 80 to 84
E: below 80
At the beginning of every season each team is given three draftpicks, one for each round. Draft picks can be exchanged, among other leagues as well.
