The 2000 Entire NFL Draft Review

NFL Draft Logo 1976 to Present NFL Draft Logo 1990 to Present

Guard - Cosey Coleman
Tampa Bay Buccaneers first overall pick.

The 2000 draft was held April 15–16, 2000, at the Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York. No teams chose to claim any players in the supplemental draft that year.

The draft started with Penn State teammates Courtney Brown and LaVar Arrington being selected consecutively, making them the only Penn State players to go number one and two in the same draft. The New York Jets had four first-round draft picks, the most by any team in the history of the draft (17 teams have had three picks but no other has had four).

The draft was notable for the selection of Michigan quarterback Tom Brady at the 199th pick in the sixth round by the New England Patriots; Brady would go on to win 2 NFL MVP awards, a record 5 Super Bowl titles and 4 Super Bowl MVPs, and is widely considered the greatest quarterback of all time. It was also the first year since 1966 that a pure placekicker was drafted in the first round, with the Oakland Raiders selecting Florida State's Sebastian Janikowski 17th overall.

The Buccaneers drafted alternately 27th and 26th through the seven rounds of the draft. The additional 1st round pick came from San Diego as a result of draft day dealings in 1998. The fourth round pick was traded to Carolina for the chance to swop picks in the 2nd round.
