The 2000 NFL Draft was the procedure by which National Football League teams selected amateur U.S. college football players. It is officially known as the NFL Annual Player Selection Meeting. The draft was held April 15–16, 2000, at the Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York. [1] [2] No teams chose to claim any players in the supplemental draft that year.

Contents

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). [3]

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. In his twenty seasons as a starter, Brady won three NFL MVP awards, a record seven Super Bowl titles and five Super Bowl MVPs. As a result of his late selection and subsequent success, Brady is considered to be the biggest steal in the history of the NFL draft, [4] [5] 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.[ citation needed ] The University of Tennessee led all colleges with nine selections in the 2000 NFL draft. As of 2021, the last remaining active player from this draft is Brady.
