Cornerback - Johnthan Banks
Tampa Bay Buccaneers first overall pick.
The 2013 NFL draft was the 78th annual meeting of National Football League (NFL) and was held at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, New York, on April 25 through April 27.
Eric Fisher was chosen first overall by the Kansas City Chiefs, becoming the fourth offensive lineman ever to be selected with the top pick (all of them being tackles), since the first Common draft in 1967. Players who attended high school in 39 of the 50 states were selected in this draft; Florida and California led with 27 draftees each. South Carolina contributed the most drafted players on a per capita basis with 13 players, or one of every 355,798 residents of the state. Among colleges, Florida State led with 11 players selected.
A record 11 players from countries other than the United States were selected (Ghanaians Ezekiel Ansah and Edmund Kugbila, Tongan Star Lotulelei, German Björn Werner, Englishman Menelik Watson, Estonian Margus Hunt, Liberian Sio Moore, Jamaican Trevardo Williams, Australian Jesse Williams, Canadian Luke Willson and Zimbabwean Stansly Maponga), breaking the record set by the 2012 NFL Draft. No running backs were selected in the draft's first round for the first time in draft history. Meanwhile, nine offensive linemen were selected in the first round which ties a record previously set in 1968.
A record 73 underclassmen forfeited any remaining NCAA eligibility they may have been eligible for and declared themselves available to be selected in the draft. Of these, 52 (71.2%) were drafted.
The Buccaneers picked from 15th through 11th in each round starting with the 13th pick in the first round. The first round pick was traded to the NY Jets for Darrelle Revis. The Buccaneers traded 4th and 6th round picks to Oakland Raiders to move up in the 4th round. The Buccaneers obtained a 4th round pick from New England Patriots for Aqib Talib then traded the 6th and 7th round picks to Minnesota Vikings to move up in the 6th round.
