1947 AAFC Draft Pick Transactions

December 20-21, 1946

Prior to the regular draft, "special selections" were made. The order of these picks is generally not known, and are listed in alphabetical order by team.

The Miami Seahawks were expelled from the league just prior to the draft for failure to fulfill contractual obligations. Their draft position was maintained, however, pending a final decision on the franchise. The picks were exercised by Hampton Poole, coach of the Seahawks, and are listed here under "Seahawks".
