The 2005 NFL Draft took place on April 23-24, 2005 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York, New York. The draft was the 70th draft in NFL history.

The NFL Draft had been held at Madison Square Garden since 1995, but was moved to the Javits Center in 2005. The draft featured the San Francisco 49ers selecting first overall Alex Smith from the University of Utah. Mr. Irrelevant, the final pick of the draft, was Andy Stokes from William Penn University. He was selected by the New England Patriots. Thirty-two compensatory choices were distributed amongst fourteen teams, with the Philadelphia Eagles and the St. Louis Rams garnering the most with 4 picks each.

On September 16, 2004, the NFL stripped the Denver Broncos of their third round draft pick in the draft as a punishment for circumventing the salary cap in 1996-1998.
