The 2017 NFL draft order doesn’t require much adjusting when the teams at the top all keep finding ways to lose.
After Week 9, it was the Cleveland Browns, San Francisco 49ers, Chicago Bears, Jacksonville Jaguars, and New York Jets in line for the first five picks of the next NFL draft, in that order. All five crept a little closer to top-five picks by losing again in Week 10.
Still, it’s the Browns comfortably in control of the top spot as long as they still have a zero in the win column after Thursday. But the 49ers haven’t allowed for much breathing room and picked up another loss in Week 10, although they came close to beating the Arizona Cardinals.
This is the draft order for the top 20 after Week 10:
|#||Team||Rec.||Rec. %||SoS %|
|2||San Francisco 49ers||1-8||0.111||0.521|
|5||New York Jets||3-7||0.300||0.493|
|8||San Diego Chargers||4-6||0.400||0.544|
|10||Los Angeles Rams (pick belongs to Titans)||4-5||0.444||0.486|
|13||Tampa Bay Buccaneers||4-5||0.444||0.521|
|14||New Orleans Saints||4-5||0.444||0.528|
|15||Green Bay Packers||4-5||0.444||0.535|
|19||Minnesota Vikings (pick belongs to Eagles)||5-4||0.556||0.490|
|20||Philadelphia Eagles (pick belongs to Browns)||5-4||0.556||0.549|
(Picks 21-32 are determined by finishing order in the playoffs. Teams currently in line for a postseason bid are not included.)
