2010 NFL Draft Order

For the first time ever, the top 20 picks in the NFL Draft will be made up exclusively of teams that didn’t make the playoffs. The playoff teams will make the final 12 picks, depending on the results of the postseason.

Ties in record are broken by strength of schedule.  Ties in strength of schedule can be broken by division or conference tiebreakers, but none were applicable in the top 20 this year.

Three ties will be determined later based on a coin flip.  We’ve starred any picks that still need a coin flip.  Here goes:

1. St. Louis (1-15)

2. Detroit (2-14)

3. Tampa Bay (3-13)

4. Washington (4-12)

5. Kansas City (4-12)

6. Seattle (5-11)

7. Cleveland (5-11)

8. Oakland (5-11)

9. Buffalo (6-10)

10t. Denver (acquired from Chicago) (7-9)*

10t. Jacksonville (7-9)*
  
12. Miami (7-9)

13. San Francisco (8-8)

14. Seattle (acquired from Denver) (8-8)

15. New York Giants (8-8)

16t. Tennessee (8-8)

16t. San Francisco (acquired from Carolina) (8-8)

18. Pittsburgh (9-7)

19t. Atlanta (9-7) *
 
19t. Houston (9-7) *

21. Cincinnati (10-6)

22. New England (10-6)

23. Green Bay (11-5)

24. Philadelphia (11-5)

25. Baltimore (9-7)

26. Arizona (10-6)

27. Dallas (11-5)

28. San Diego (11-5)

29. New York Jets (9-7)

30. Minnesota (12-4)

Picks 21-24 will be made by the wild-card round losers. Picks 25-28 will be made the
divisional round losers.  Picks 29-30 will be made by the conference
championship losers.  Pick 31 will go to the Super Bowl loser.  Pick 32 will
be made by the Super Bowl winner.

    Not sure how many were trades but –
    The Rams started with #24 in 2004.
    Then 19 in 205.
    Then 15 in 2006.
    Then 13 in 2007.
    Then 2 in 2008.
    Then 2 in 2009.
    Then 1 in 2010.
    I see a pattern there lol
    3 of last 7 have been defensive lineman … will Suh make it 4/8 ?

    Looks like San Fran has a good chance to be pretty improved next yr if they hit their 2 first rounders….Hope my Brownies go for a right tackle or stud DE…2nd round we need one or the other or CB

  3. Adam says: Jan 4, 2010 12:32 PM

    Wonder who the Giants take. It’s gotta be a linebacker, DB, or safety…or OL..or DT. At least they don’t need WRs, RBs, or QB.
    Hell, they might trade Osi for some picks. Don’t think it’s a good idea, but it might happen.

  4. 1nationraidernation says: Jan 4, 2010 12:40 PM

    with the 8th pick of the 2009 draft, the Oakland Raiders select …OT Trent Williams Oaklahoma.

  5. AbeFreshly says: Jan 4, 2010 12:40 PM

    If the Browns & Raiders have the same record, & the Browns beat the Raiders, why would the Browns select ahead of the Raiders? I thought head-to-head was “trump”?

  6. ButchD says: Jan 4, 2010 12:41 PM

    “Picks 21-24 will be the wild card round losers. Picks 25-28 will be the divisional round losers. Picks 29-30 will be the conference championship losers”
    That is incorrect.
    Other than the SB winner & loser, where they exit the playoffs is only a tie breaker. an 8-8 team that loses a conf championship game drafts as the last 8-8 team, but before ALL 9-7 teams, even ones that lose in the wild card round

    No, strength of schedule is trump.

    I thought the Eagles had Carolina’s pick, but maybe that was last year?

    After win-loss record, strength of schedule is first, after that div/conf tie breakers (h2h, etc.) are used if applicable – that is if the teams played, in the same div or conf

  10. nochance says: Jan 4, 2010 1:42 PM

    Reinhold…. I think Philly used Carolina’s pick last year, one of their first round picks was on maclin and the other they traded for Jason peters

    Actually, Butch, You are incorrect. The order shown here was taken directly from the NFL’s blog posting on the matter.
    Don’t believe me? Here is the address, check it out, tell me if it looks familiar, then go apologize to Florio.

    you are the 1 that is not correct.
    the nfl changed the draft order rules this last off season. goto nfl.com it will say the same thing as Gregg Rosenthal has here.

    Is he the fastest guy in the draft? If so, that would be amazing for a OL to be the fastest player in the draft.

  14. Seeryer says: Jan 4, 2010 2:15 PM

    Expect the Jags to trade back and try to pick up picks. They do not have a second rounder at this time and don’t want to pay a guy like they did Derrick Harvey and have him flop.

  15. Asswipe Johnson (Pronounced Az-Wee-Pay) says: Jan 4, 2010 2:16 PM

    12. Miami – Lots of potential with this pick including trading down if one of the quarterbacks drop. As somebody may want to be sure to get in front of #14 Seattle.
    At first glance any of these could have an impact here for Miami…Taylor Mayes, Jermaine Gresham, Rolando McClain, Mike Iupati, Terrence Cody ect…

  16. ButchD says: Jan 4, 2010 4:15 PM

    ha, i was thinking there was a change, so funny thing is, i double checked NFL.com before posting, and, of course they hadnt updated the tie breakers page since the rules change back in what, April…

    draft order ones are at the bottom…

  17. Lott42 says: Jan 4, 2010 6:58 PM

    Can the 49ers package their picks and get an offensive coordinator with a pulse…?

    The Raiders should draft a QB, & move the Walrus to OT.

  19. jx4cmario1 says: Jan 6, 2010 12:13 AM

    21. Baltimore
    22. Arizona
    23. Cinci
    24. Philly
    25. New York
    26. Dallas
    27. New England
    28. Green Bay
    29. New Orleans
    30. Indy
    31. San Diego
    32. Minnesota

  20. Beeray13 says: Jan 7, 2010 3:44 PM

    I’m sure the raiders will pick another scrub at 8. Please don’t pick another Safety Al, we need a decent OT. Russell Okung or Bruce Campbell PLEASE. I know they still need a QB but since EVERY QB they drafted in the first rd has been a major bust and they stink at developing players anyway they should go with the safe pick – but I’m sure they wont.

  21. madstork43 says: Jan 9, 2010 9:55 AM

    No way the Raiders draft a QB.

  22. jibfest says: Jan 11, 2010 7:09 PM

    Browns need everything, Raiders need an offense.

    I thought the Eagles had Carolina’s pick, but maybe that was last year?
    —————————————————————————
    During the 2008 NFL draft the Eagles traded away their first round selection (19th overall) to the Carolina Panthers, which they used to draft offensive tackle Jeff Otah. In return the Eagles received Carolina’s second and fourth round selections during that draft. (43rd and 109th overall, respectively) The Eagles also received the Panthers 2009 first round pick (28th overall) which they used to acquire Pro Bowl offensive tackle Jason Peters from the Buffalo Bills.
    The 43rd overall selection that the Eagles received from the Panthers was swapped with the Vikings 47th overall and the Eagles selected with that pick defensive tackle Trevor Laws from Notre Dame.
    With the ’08 fourth round pick the Eagles received from Carolina (109th overall) they selected offensive tackle Mike McGlynn from Pittsburgh.
    Hope this clears up the confusion.

    Actually with the 8th pick in the draft, the New England Patriots will take…..well, I don’t know. What I do know is that the 8th pick in the draft is no Oakland’s due to the Seymore trade…….
    No 1st round scrubs for Raiders to screw up on this year!!!

  25. Eagles4life says: Jan 12, 2010 12:48 PM

    “I’m sure the raiders will pick another scrub at 8.”
    They are going to trade it to the Eagles for McNabb. And before you call me crazy…. Google Al Davis and then hit your head on your hand and say “Doh!”

    The Seymore trade was for #1 in 2011, NOT THIS YEAR.

    i’ll do that trade and throw in a JaMarcus!

  28. Ross'sSweetMinus says: Jan 25, 2010 1:50 PM

    What a loser organization the LIONS are. top 3 the last 10 years. Why don’t the Fords just sell that team so it can be moved to a different city?

    Why did u remind me?

    There must be a mistake… don’t see the Bears on this list! Sigh, I almost forgot. No seriously, Cutler is a steed.

  31. BestDamnPanthersFan says: Jan 25, 2010 2:19 PM

    I am sick and tired of John Fox trading away 1st round picks. Panthers fans like myself have nothing to look forward to in the offseason which makes if feel twice as long. We need a WR and if Demaryius Thomas is available when the Panthers pick in the 2nd round we better draft him.
    Go Panthers!
