The 2005 MLS SuperDraft, held in Baltimore, Maryland on January 14, 2005, was the sixth incarnation of the annual Major League Soccer SuperDraft. Expansion club Real Salt Lake had the first pick as the result of a coin toss (fellow newcomers C.D. Chivas USA got to go first in the expansion draft). RSL drafted Under-17 midfielder Nikolas Besagno with the first selection.

A collective bargaining agreement with the MLS Players' Union dictated that the draft be reduced from six to four rounds, although a Supplemental Draft was held to equip newly formed reserve teams and compensate for expansion.
