The 2013 NFL draft was the 78th annual meeting of National Football League (NFL) franchises to select newly eligible football players. The draft, which is officially called the “NFL Player Selection Meeting,” was held at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, New York, on April 25 through April 27. Eric Fisher was chosen first overall by the Kansas City Chiefs, becoming the fourth offensive lineman ever to be selected with the top pick (all of them being tackles), since the first Common draft in 1967. Players who attended high school in 39 of the 50 states were selected in this draft; Florida and California led with 27 draftees each. South Carolina contributed the most drafted players on a per capita basis with 13 players, or one of every 355,798 residents of the state. Among colleges, Florida State led with 11 players selected. A record 11 players from countries other than the United States were selected (Ghanaians Ezekiel Ansah and Edmund Kugbila, Tongan Star Lotulelei, German Björn Werner, Englishman Menelik Watson, Estonian Margus Hunt, Liberian Sio Moore, Jamaican Trevardo Williams, Australian Jesse Williams, Canadian Luke Willson and Zimbabwean Stansly Maponga), breaking the record set by the 2012 NFL Draft. Meanwhile, nine offensive linemen were selected in the first round which ties a record previously set in 1968. The following is the breakdown of the 254 players selected by position:
