We knew the Carolina Panthers had the first pick in the 2011 draft before this week even started.
After Sunday’s results, we have a highly unofficial look at the top six picks. Here goes:
1. Carolina (2-14)
2. Denver (4-12)
3. Buffalo (4-12)
4. Cincinnati (4-12)
5. Arizona (5-11)
6. Cleveland (5-11)
The Seahawks-Rams game will affect the remaining picks, although we believe San Francisco is slated for the seventh pick regardless. If the Seahawks lose Sunday night, they will have the eighth pick. If the Seahawks win, they will be no better than 21st.
Maybe that’s why the Seahawks started Charlie Whitehurst.
Yes, that’s a joke people.
UPDATE: The NFL confirmed the above order is correct. Here’s the rest of the top 15 if the Rams win.
