As the NFL Playoffs carom toward their riveting conclusion, many fans and collectors have turned their attention to another football season already steadfastly underway: 2018 NFL Draft Season. In the coming months, the NFL’s next Rookie Card class will be thoroughly and collectively scrutinized. NFL personnel folks want to know who are the best fits for their respective franchises. Collectors want to know who fits best in their collections — and those collections will likely begin with Panini America’s 2018 Elite Draft Picks Football.

Set to arrive in hobby shops across North America in late March, 2018 Elite Draft Picks Football will be the first licensed college football product released in 2018.

The highlights of 2018 Elite Draft Picks Football are many and include . . .

  • Hobby-exclusive College Ties, Elite Series, Primary Colors and Chain Reaction autograph inserts.

    I see you have former draft picks in the set as well. Any chance we see college cards of guys who went undrafted and had good NFL careers? John Randle, James Harrison, Jason Peters, Adam Vinatieri, Priest Holmes, Tony Romo?

    Even some late round picks like Donald Driver, Antonio Brown, Jared Allen, Seth Joyner, Matt Hasselbeck, Shannon Sharpe. Could have a whole set called Unheralded or something like that.
