Yes. When a player is drafted during the NFL draft the team that drafted them owns the signing rights. So, if the player refuses to play they will have to wait a year and then get signed as a free agent. If that team doesn't do anything with the signing rights to the player they will not play in the NFL that year. If a player is not drafted they become an 'undrafted free agent' and are immediately available to be picked up by any team.

No. A team that drafts a player has one year to sign that player to a contract. If the team cannot sign the player because the player does not want to play for them, the team may trade the player to another team. If a drafted player has not signed a contract within one year of being drafted, that player may enter the draft again and be selected again.
