The 2002 Entire NFL Draft Review

Wide Receiver - Marquise Walker
Tampa Bay Buccaneers first overall pick.

The 2002 draft took place April 20–21, 2002 at the Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York. The 2002 draft was broadcast on ESPN both days and eventually moved to ESPN2. The draft began with the Houston Texans selecting David Carr, and it ended with the Texans selecting Mr. Irrelevant, Ahmad Miller. There were thirty-two compensatory selections distributed among eighteen teams, with the Buffalo Bills receiving the most selections with four. The University of Miami was the college most represented in the draft, having five of its players selected in the first round. Although the Carolina Panthers finished with a 1–15 record which would normally have given them the first pick in each round, the Houston Texans were given the first pick because they were an expansion team.

The league also held a supplemental draft after the regular draft and before the regular season.

The Buccaneers gave up the top two picks in this draft to the Oakland Raiders as part of the deal that brought Jon Gruden to Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers selected alternately 22-21 in this draft. They also received three additional 7th round selections as compensatory picks.
