Twelve SEC student-athletes were selected in the 2019 National Pro Fastpitch Draft, which was held on April 15 in Nashville.

Florida pitcher Kelly Barnhill was the No. 1 overall pick, the first top pick in program history and the seventh SEC student-athlete to be selected first in the draft. Iyhia McMichael from Mississippi State was the NPF's first-ever draft selection in 2004, followed by Tennessee's Lindsay Schutzler (2007), Alabama's Charlotte Morgan (2010) and Kelsi Dunne (2011), and LSU's Brittany Mack (2012) and Rachele Fico (2013).

The 2019 draft had a total of 25 selections over five rounds made by five NPF affiliate teams: the Aussie Peppers, Beijing Eagles, Chicago Bandits, Cleveland Comets, and USSSA Pride.
