The 2006 Entire NFL Draft Review

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

Guard - Davin Joseph
Tampa Bay Buccaneers first overall pick.

The 2006 National Football League Draft, the 71st in league history, took place in New York City, New York, at Radio City Music Hall on April 29 and April 30, 2006. For the 27th consecutive year, the draft was telecast on ESPN and ESPN2, with additional coverage offered by ESPNU and, for the first time, by the NFL Network. Having signed a contract with the Houston Texans on the evening before the draft, Mario Williams, a defensive end from North Carolina State, became the draft’s first pick. The selection surprised many commentators, who predicted that the Texans would draft Southern California running back Reggie Bush or Texas quarterback Vince Young. Ohio State produced the most first round selections (five), while Southern California produced the most overall selections (eleven). Twenty-seven compensatory and supplemental compensatory selections were distributed amongst seventeen teams; Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Baltimore, and Tennessee each held three compensatory picks. The league also held a supplemental draft after the regular draft and before the regular season.

The Buccaneers additional 6th round selection from the NY Giants came in the Jason Whittle trade. The extra 6th round and two 7th round picks were compensatory ones. The Buccaneerss picked 23rd in the 1st round and then 27th, 26th, 25th, 24th and 23th.
