NFL Draft
 < 2007 2009 > 
The new NFL logo went into use at the 2008 draft.

The 2008 NFL Draft took place at Radio City Music Hall in New York City on April 26 and April 27, 2008. For the 29th consecutive year, ESPN televised the draft; the NFL Network also broadcast the event, its third year doing so. Of the 252 selections,[1] 220 were regular selections in rounds one through seven, and 32 were compensatory selections,[2] distributed among rounds three through seven.[3] For the first time since the common draft began, no wide receiver was selected in the first round, even though wide receiver was the most frequently drafted position overall, with 35 selected. Also, a record 34 trades were made during the draft itself.[4]

Changes for 2008

The schedule for the draft was changed: day one began at 3:00 PM EDT (1900 UTC), instead of noon, and consisted of just two rounds. Day two began with round three at 10:00 AM EDT (1400 UTC), instead of 11:00 AM. Moreover, the time limits for day one selections were reduced, from 15 minutes to ten for first-round picks and from ten minutes to seven in the second. The limit remained five minutes for all picks in rounds three through seven.[5]

The draft also marked the official debut of a new NFL shield logo, replacing the old shield logo which had been used since 1970, featuring eight white stars to represent each of the league's eight divisions, and a football rotated to the same angle as the one on the top of the Vince Lombardi Trophy given to the Super Bowl champion.[6]

Fifth round

  • Jets to Panthers. As noted earlier, the Jets traded their third and fifth-round selections to Carolina in the Kris Jenkins deal.

If Plummer, who is currently retired, had reported to the Buccaneers before the first pick of the 2008 draft was made, Tampa Bay would have sent the Broncos their fourth-round selection. Since Plummer did not report, Denver will receive Tampa's seventh-round selection.[49]

NFL Draft
 < 2007 2009 > 


The 2008 NFL Draft took place at Radio City Music Hall in New York City on April 26 and April 27, 2008. For the 29th consecutive year, ESPN televised the draft; the NFL Network also broadcast the event, its third year doing so. Of the 252 selections,[1] 220 were regular selections in rounds one through seven, and 32 were compensatory selections,[2] distributed among rounds three through seven.[3] For the first time since the common draft began, no wide receiver was selected in the first round, even though wide receiver was the most frequently drafted position overall, with 35 selected. Also, a record 34 trades were made during the draft itself.[4]

Changes for 2008

The schedule for the draft was changed: day one began at 3:00 PM EDT (1900 UTC), instead of noon, and consisted of just two rounds. Day two began with round three at 10:00 AM EDT (1400 UTC), instead of 11:00 AM. Moreover, the time limits for day one selections were reduced, from 15 minutes to ten for first-round picks and from ten minutes to seven in the second. The limit remained five minutes for all picks in rounds three through seven.[5]

The draft also marked the official debut of a new NFL shield logo, replacing the old shield logo which had been used since 1970, featuring eight white stars to represent each of the league's eight divisions, and a football rotated to the same angle as the one on the top of the Vince Lombardi Trophy given to the Super Bowl champion.[6]

Since Plummer did not report, Denver will receive Tampa's seventh-round selection.[49]
