NFL Draft
 < 1994 1996 > 

The 1995 NFL Draft was the procedure by which National Football League teams selected amateur college football players. It is officially known as the NFL Annual Player Selection Meeting. The draft was held April 22–23, 1995[1] at the Paramount Theatre at Madison Square Garden in New York City.[2] At the time of the draft the Raiders were still the Los Angeles Raiders, they relocated to Oakland in July 1995. The league also held a supplemental draft after the regular draft and before the regular season.

There were 32 picks in the first round of this draft as the two expansion teams each received two extra picks between the first and second rounds. The Carolina Panthers, having selected second in the 1995 NFL Expansion Draft, were awarded the first overall pick in this draft and the Jacksonville Jaguars, having picked first in the expansion draft, selected second. The Panthers, however, traded their number one pick to the Cincinnati Bengals for the Bengals' fifth overall pick and their fourth pick in the second round.[3] The Panthers were also stripped of two later supplemental picks, numbers 61 and 191, for improperly recruiting the Pittsburgh Steelers Defensive Coordinator, Dom Capers, as their Head Coach.[4]

This marked only the second time to date in NFL History that two Hall of Fame players were selected by the same team in the same round (the other being the Bears in 1965 NFL Draft.) The Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected with the 12th overall pick, Warren Sapp and selected with the 28th overall pick, Derrick Brooks. The two future Hall of Famers would go on to lead a strong defense which contributed heavily to the win in Super Bowl XXXVII. [5]
