    Eric Berry should go #3 to the Bucs. Since he already has a firm grasp of the Tampa 2, Tampa would have the best safety tandem in the league bar none. A solid D-Tackle can be found in the 2nd round.

  2. Anonymous says:

    what if browns trade brady quinn and 1st round pick to KC and draft jimmy clausen? that would be amazing

  3. Anonymous says:

    SUE is going to be the first pick… unless a team with a strong D gets a trade for the first pick, but as it looks now he is going to be going to St.Louis or any other of the top 5 teams. we all know any team in the top 5 needs a player like that. almost more then any position.

  4. Anonymous says:

    do the browns have the jets 5th round pick from the edwards trade?

  5. Anonymous says:

    seattle should be wise and take qb tim tebow with the 6th pick, bradford is damaged goods and still needs more learning

  6. Anonymous says:

    redskins are gettin sam bradford. NO BUTS!

  7. Anonymous says:

    how do the redskins pick before the chiefs? the redskins played winless teams weeks 1-4

  8. workhomeunion says:

    Maybe the Raiders will get another QB, JaMarcus is headed for the CFL.

  9. Brett says:

    This article seems to verify that all conference and division tiebreakers are applied, including head-to-head games.


    It’s worth noting: none of the ties in Strength of Schedule this year are between teams in the same conference. Therefore, the conference and division tiebreakers are not applicable for any of these ties.

  10. Brett says:

    In the 2008, there were two ties in the draft order broken by head-to-head games.

    Buffalo and Denver (7-9 record, .516 SoS)
    Chicago and Detroit(7-9 record, .543 SoS)


    I am guessing the owners voted in March of 2008 to remove head-to-head records from the tiebreaking steps?

  11. Admin says:

    If SOS is tied, then you look at division/conference records (if they apply). For example, CHI and JAX have SOS tied, and they aren’t in the same div or conference, so it goes to the coin flip.

    Head-2-Head doesn’t factor at all in NFL Draft Order.

  12. Brett says:

    Thanks for sharing the article.
    Are conference tie-breakers still used if strength of schedule is tied? If so, wouldn’t head-to-head record come before division or conference record?

    CJ Spiller all the way

  14. Brett says:

    Where can one find updated rules for determining the draft order? The old rules are still posted on NFL.com

  15. Admin says:

    @Brett – Read the comment previous to yours. The Owners changed the rules starting with the 2010 season.

  16. Admin says:

    Last year you would have been correct — starting in 2010:

    The losers of the wild-card games will be seeded 21st through 24th based on their records.

    The losers in the divisional rounds will be seeded 25th through 28th. Teams eliminated in the conference championship games will be seeded 29th and 30th.

    The Super Bowl loser will be seeded 31st. The Super Bowl winner will receive the final pick in each round.

  17. Anonymous says:

    I think playoff results is just another tie-breaker used – not a determining factor. Notice that San Diego made the playoffs last year, but did not have the 21st pick (they picked 16th). Also Tennessee did not make the AFC championship game (played between Baltimore and Pittsburgh), yet Tennessee drafted 30th (and Baltimore drafted 26th).
    Only the Suber Bowl results supercede the other tiebreakers. That is why Pittsburgh drafted last and Arizona drafted 2nd to last.

  18. Anonymous says:

    Good point, Anonymous (1/4 10:56 p.m.) Head-to-head is not even considered among the criteria to determine tie-breaker. Perhaps it should be…

  19. Admin says:

    Head to head doesn’t count. Strength of schedule is the first tiebreaker.

  20. Anonymous says:

    does head to head not count? just wondering why the browns pick ahead of the raiders when the browns beat the raiders this year.

  21. Anonymous says:

    Hmm, the Pats would have had the 8th over all pick this year from Oakland. I wonder if that would rather have that than the 2011 pick.

  22. Admin says:

    That only happens if they are in the same conference or division… which isn’t the case with those.

  23. Pithy says:

    Thank you Bronco’s for losing!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. Anonymous says:

    denver got it good this year. they got the 8th and 10th pick

  25. Anonymous says:

    i thought bucs had second pick in the first round?

  26. Anonymous says:

    patriot’s lose to Miami, how sweet it is!!

  27. Admin says:

    According to the NFL Draft Order after week 4, the Patriots hold the 1st and 13th pick in the 2nd round.
