2002 NFL Draft Results: Order and Picks for Round 1-7

A draft loaded with controversy and some of the best defensive players at their positions for the next decade-plus, these are the full 2002 NFL Draft results.

The 2002 NFL Draft was one full of stories. Not only did the Houston Texans strike out on their first pick in franchise history, but the Cowboys took too long to get their pick in, resulting in a race between the Vikings and Chiefs to get to the podium first.

Throw in an unbelievable class featuring Ed Reed, Dwight Freeny, and Julius Peppers, and it’s safe to say this class left its impact on the league. What happened to everyone else from the 2008 NFL Draft class? Below are the full 2008 NFL Draft results.
