2005 NFL draft order

The San Francisco 49ers will make the first choice of the 2005 National Football League Draft on April 23-24. The order of the 2005 Draft was announced today by the NFL.

The 49ers' choice will be followed by the Miami Dolphins picking second and Cleveland Browns third.

Draft-order ties are resolved by the cumulative record of each team's opponents. The team with the weaker opponents receives drafting priority.

Within a tied segment, non-playoff clubs are given priority over playoff clubs. Priority of playoff clubs within a tied segment will be based on their advancement in the playoffs, but they will not drop out of their tied segment unless they participate in the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl champion will select 32nd and the runner-up 31st.
