The 1985 Entire NFL Draft Review

NFL Draft Logo 1976 to Present

Defensive End, Ron Holmes
Tampa Bay Buccaneers first overall pick.

The 1985 NFL draft was held April 30 and May 1, 1985, at the Omni Park Central Hotel in New York City, New York. The league also held a supplemental draft after the regular draft and before the regular season.

The first six selections of the draft made at least one Pro Bowl, and three of the first 16 picks — Bruce Smith, Chris Doleman, and Jerry Rice — have been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

For the second consecutive season, there were no quarterbacks chosen in the first round on draft day. University of Miami quarterback Bernie Kosar was selected by the Browns in the supplemental draft several months later.

The Buccaneers drafted 8th overall throughout this draft. The additional 12th round pick came from the Los Angeles Rams for DE Booker Reese.
