For experts only. What was the last year that only 25 players were selected in the first round of the draft?
1990. The summer of 1989, three teams used first-round picks in the supplemental draft: Dallas (Steve Walsh), Phoenix (Timm Rosenbach) and Denver (Bobby Humphrey). By exercising those picks, the teams forfeited their first-round choices for the next year. So on April 22, 1990, when the Cowboys selected Auburn wide receiver Alexander Wright with the 26th overall pick, he was the first pick of the second-round rather than a first-rounder.
