The format was simple. Caplan picked first, followed by Mosher, followed by DiCecco for the duration of the 32 selections. Each selection was made with input from all three but the person responsible for making the pick in each slot settled any disputes and was responsible for the selection. One trade was agreed upon by all three, with Jacksonville trading down with Atlanta to 16th overall from ninth overall.
Of the 32 picks, seven were wide receivers — the most of any position group. Offensive tackle was the next most coveted position, with six selections in the first round.
National champion LSU and powerhouse Alabama combined for 10 players taken overall, five apiece from each school. Three of the first six selections were quarterbacks.
