The 1950 National Football League Draft was held January 20–21, 1950, at the Bellevue-Stratford Hotel in Philadelphia.[1] With the league absorbing the Baltimore Colts, Cleveland Browns, and San Francisco 49ers from the All-America Football Conference, these three teams were combined with the other NFL clubs in a single ranking to determine the order of the draft.

This was the fourth year that the first overall pick was a bonus pick determined by lottery, with the previous three winners (Chicago Bears in 1947, Washington Redskins in 1948, and Philadelphia Eagles in 1949) ineligible from the draw;[2] it was won by the Detroit Lions, who selected end Leon Hart.
