Il Draft di espansione della National Football League del 1976 fu tenuto il 30 e 31 marzo 1976. Le nuove franchigie della lega, i Seattle Seahawks e i Tampa Bay Buccaneers, scelsero ognuna 39 giocatori dalle altre 26 squadre della NFL. Ogni volta che un giocatore veniva scelto da una squadra esistente, a quella squadra era consentito di proteggere altri due giocatori addizionali[1]. Le squadre di espansione continuarono finché avevano preso tre giocatori da ogni squadra.

L'expansion draft avrebbe dovuto tenersi in origine dal 23 al 24 gennaio ma fu rimandato quando i proprietari dei Seahawks e dei Buccaneers mossero una causa legale contro il sindacato dei giocatori, temendo che quell'organizzazione volesse impedire il draft. Per lo stesso motivo fu ritardato anche il Draft NFL 1976[2].
