Running Back - Carnell "Cadillac" Williams
Tampa Bay Buccaneers first overall pick.

The 2005 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, 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. The draft featured the San Francisco 49ers selecting first overall Alex Smith from the University of Utah.

Compensatory selections were distributed amongst fourteen teams, with the Philadelphia Eagles and the St. Louis Rams garnering the most with four picks each. Three of the first five picks were running backs, an NFL draft first.

The Buccaneers recieved additional 3rd and 7th round picks from the San Diego Chargers due to the Keenan McCardell trade. The additional 5th round pick from San Diego Chargers came in the Roman Oben trade. The additional 7th round pick from the NY Giants came in the Jason Whittle trade.
