Current 2013 NFL Draft order

Jamie Squire

The top five order of the 2013 NFL Draft remains unchanged from last week. The staring contest between the Kansas City Chiefs and Jacksonville Jaguars continues with neither team daring to win and lose their chance at the first pick.

The Chiefs close playing at Denver while the Jaguars travel to Tennessee. The Titans have lost six of their last eight games, including a Week 12 game against Jacksonville. Out of the two teams, Jacksonville is most likely to win.

Another big draft-related game in Week 17 is the New York Jets at Buffalo Bills. There are eight teams with either a 5-10 or 6-9 record. The Bills (5-10 and slotted with pick six) and Jets (6-9, slotted with pick 12) could almost flip draft positions depending on the outcome.

To most football fans, the Raiders at Chargers game may be a snoozer. But to NFL Draft followers, it's a key game. With a win, San Diego could dip into the middle of the first round. With a loss, they'll have the 10th pick in the draft, at best. The Raiders are currently slated to pick third. A win and Oakland could push down to the sixth pick.

The final key storyline to follow is what happens between the Arizona Cardinals and Titans. If both either win or lose, strength of schedule will come into play. Tennessee's strength of schedule will lower after playing the Jaguars. Arizona's will go up after playing San Francisco.
