2005 NFL Draft Class

Alex Smith.PNG

While there were plenty of elite athletes in this class worthy of attention, like future hall of famer DeMarcus Ware and the likes of Shawne Merriman, Derrick Johnson, and Alex Smith, this class also boasts some of the biggest busts who are, in retrospect, considered workout warriors. This includes Jaguars receiver Matt Jones and Rams tackle Alex Barron, both of whom flamed out quickly and spectacularly.

Round Above 5.00 Below 5.00 Percent above
2005 1 29 0 100%
2005 2 29 1 97%
2005 3 26 6 81%
2005 4 23 3 88%
2005 5 29 6 83%
2005 6 27 5 84%
2005 7 18 8 69%

Not a single player in the 2005 draft class rated below 5.00 in the first round. There was only one in the second round, Bengals linebacker Odell Thurman (4.25). Thurman started as a defensive rookie of the year candidate, but it was substance abuse rather than a lack of measurable athletic ability that would spell the downfall of his NFL career. He only played one season before being suspended for the following two seasons and ending up out of the NFL.
