The 2005 NFL draft was the procedure by which National Football League teams selected amateur college football players. It is officially known as the NFL Annual Player Selection Meeting. The draft was held April 23–24, 2005. The league also held a supplemental draft that year, which was held after the regular draft but before the regular season. The draft took place at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City,[1][2] and was televised for the 26th consecutive year on ESPN and ESPN2. The NFL draft had been held at Madison Square Garden since 1995, but was moved to the Javits Center in 2005.[3] The draft featured the San Francisco 49ers selecting first overall Alex Smith from the University of Utah.[4][5] The main storyline going into the draft was the mystery surrounding when Quarterback Aaron Rodgers would be drafted, as well as his subsequent fall to the Packers. Compensatory selections were distributed amongst fourteen teams, with the Philadelphia Eagles and the St. Louis Rams garnering the most with four picks each.[6] Three of the first five picks were running backs, an NFL draft first.[7] The 255 players chosen in the draft were composed of:
