This is a list of San Jose Sharks draft picks. The San Jose Sharks came into existence in 1991 when the NHL expanded into northern California as a compromise to the owners of the Minnesota North Stars, who wanted to relocate the team. The 2007 NHL Entry Draft was the 17th draft that the Sharks participated in since joining the league. As well as yearly Entry Drafts, the Sharks have participated in a dispersal and expansion draft.

This list features every player drafted by the Sharks, where they played their junior or college hockey, the number of regular season games played in the NHL, and their career points (skaters) or wins (goaltenders).

Stats are complete as of the 2006–07 NHL season. Players shaded in light blue were active in the NHL during the 2007–08 NHL season.
