The 1999 Entire NFL Draft Review

Defensive Tackle - Anthony McFarland
Tampa Bay Buccaneers first overall pick.

The draft was held April 17–18, 1999, at the Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York. The league also held a supplemental draft after the regular draft and before the regular season.

The New Orleans Saints traded all six of their draft picks to the Washington Redskins for the fifth overall selection, which they used to select running back Ricky Williams. This was the first and only time that an NFL team has had only one pick in a draft.

Five quarterbacks were selected in the first round, second most after the 1983 NFL Draft.

The Buccaneers drafted 15th in the first round and then alternately 19th through 15th from then on. The additional 6th and 7th round picks came from the Jacksonville Jaguars in return for selecting in the 6th round picks. The original 6th round pick had been traded to Baltimore for Quarterback Eric Zeier, but an additional 6th round pick came from the Kansas City Chiefs in return for Safety Melvin Johnson.
