In 2005, there were four teams.
In 2006, there were three teams.
In 2007, there were two.
In 2008, there were an astounding number of five teams.
In 2009, there were four.
In 2010, there were another four.
In 2011, there were the Saints.
In 2012, there were four.
And in 2013, there were three, with the Vikings amassing 3 picks.
There were several with multiple first round picks in consecutive seasons, too.
Some of these teams traded up to get another first rounder (like the Saints in 2011 and the Vikings in 2013) and some of these teams traded guys for the picks (Minnesota traded Harvin for Seattle's first rounder in 2013). I'm not sure how many traded prior year's first round picks for future firsts.
